Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

The Brooklyn Nets conclude an eight-game road trip tonight in Cleveland.  If all goes the Hawks’ way, Atlanta could be in a fourth place tie by the end of the night.standings

The Nets are currently 4-3 through the first seven games of their Circus Trip.  The road success has been critical in them holding off the Hawks and Chicago Bulls for that final first-round home court spot.  If the Hawks beat the New York Knicks and get the necessary help from the Cavaliers, they’ll be tied with Brooklyn for fourth in the East.

The Boston Celtics return home to face the Detroit Pistons in what should be a winnable game.  With the Hawks comfortably ahead at this moment, Boston isn’t the priority, but no cushion is big enough, so Detroit is on the “rooting for” list tonight as well.

Teams to root for:  Cavaliers, Pistons
