Hawks vs. Cavaliers Details
Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Atlanta Hawks
The Atlanta Hawks are in the midst of the most successful period their history: they made the playoffs in ten consecutive seasons between 2007-08 and 2016-17 and reached the Eastern Conference Final for the first time. The Hawks’ best season came in 2014-15. They finished with a franchise-best 60 wins, won the Southeast Division for the first time, and were the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Players like Paul Millsap, Kyle Korver, and Jeff Teague led the way for Atlanta.
The Cleveland Cavaliers, led by LeBron James since he returned to the team in 2014, have been the Hawks’ playoff nemesis. The Hawks and Cavaliers have met in the playoffs three times during Atlanta’s ten-year playoff streak, but the Cavaliers have swept the series in all three matchups.
Both the Hawks and Cavs have gone through some major changes, so some new faces will star in future matchups, Paul Millsap, who had played for the Hawks since 2013, left the team in the 2017 offseason to sign with the Denver Nuggets. In the same offseason, the Cavs traded former first-overall pick Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Žižić, and two draft picks.
Historic Cavaliers vs. Hawks Games
2009 Conference Semifinals, Game 1: The two teams met in the playoffs for the first time in LeBron James’ first stint with the Cavaliers. James--who was the NBA’s MVP during the regular season--and the Cavs were coming off a first round sweep of the Detroit Pistons. Cleveland got right back to it with a decisive win over the Hawks in game one of the second round. James scored 34 points and had ten rebounds in the Cavs’ 99-72 win. The Cavaliers went on to sweep the series.
2015 Eastern Conference Finals, Game 3: With the Hawks down 2 game to none in their first Eastern Conference Finals series, a slow start from LeBron James got them close to their first playoff victory against the Cavaliers. The Hawks’ Jeff Teague scored 30 points in the game, and Paul Millsap had 22. The Hawks led by two points with a minute left in overtime, but the Cavs collected an offensive rebound from a LeBron James shot and got it back to James, who faked out his defender and drained a crucial three point shot. The Hawks missed their chance to tie the game, and the Cavs won 114-111. They went on to sweep the series yet again.
When do the Cavs and Hawks play each other?
The Hawks and Cavs play in separate divisions in Eastern Conference. Atlanta plays in the Southeast Division, and Cleveland plays in the Central. NBA teams in the same conference but different divisions play each other either three or four times a year. There is also always the possibility that the two teams could meet in the first three rounds in the playoffs.
