Atlanta Hawks Playoff Details
The Atlanta Hawks play in one of the basketball capitals of the world, and the team has treated those fans to a number of playoff appearances. The Hawks have been a regular in the playoffs and have, in many seasons, been on the short list of contenders to play in the NBA Finals. What may be most impressive, though, is the fact that they have been able to compete across multiple eras in league history.
Hawks fans got their first championship back when the team was the St. Louis Hawks. In 1958, the team went 8-3 in the playoffs to earn the NBA championship, knocking off the mighty Boston Celtics to get the job done. Those Hawks teams featured the legendary Bob Pettit, who was one of the best scorers in the history of the league at that point.
Later on, the team found success in Atlanta in the 1990s, thanks to a fun team that featured a combination of a dominant big man and guards to go with him. That big man, of course, was Dikembe Mutombo, who was flanked by point guard Mookie Blaylock and the sharp shooting Steve Smith, among other key players. Those teams didn’t have the championship success that the Pettit-era Hawks did, but they were definitely one of the most fun teams in the league at the time and were valiant competitors in the playoffs.
And in the 2010s, the Hawks again found a run of success in the postseason. With the young Jeff Teague distributing the ball to veterans Al Horford, Kyle Korver, and Paul Millsap, the Hawks were a tough out for a long time. In 2015, they were the number one seed heading into the playoffs, a postseason in which the franchise made it all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals.
That 2010s Hawks unit developed a rivalry with the Cleveland Cavaliers, as both teams were among the last standing in the Eastern Conference playoffs on a regular basis. With LeBron James anchoring the Cavaliers against the veteran Hawks lineup, there was no shortage of experience on the floor.
When Do Hawks Playoff Tickets Go On Sale?
Atlanta Hawks playoff tickets go on sale at or around the point that the Hawks qualify for the NBA Playoffs. This typically happens in late March or early April. But there have been seasons where the Hawks have qualified for the playoffs before that point, with tickets going on sale earlier, so it is a good idea to keep an eye on the standings toward the end of the NBA season.
How Much Do Hawks Playoff Tickets Cost?
Tickets to see the Hawks in the playoffs average $101 on the secondary market. However, fans should keep in mind that this average can vary based on what round of the playoffs is happening, as well as where in the arena a fan wants to sit, among other factors.
