Atlanta Hawks Headlines returns to find Atlanta’s losing streak still in tact. Is it time to panic?
The Atlanta Hawks last won a basketball game on March 13th. That was more than two weeks ago. Since then, they have lost seven consecutive games. They’ve lost to good teams like the San Antonio Spurs, Memphis Grizzlies, and Washington Wizards.
They’ve lost to middling teams like the Portland Trail Blazers, Charlotte Hornets, and Milwaukee Bucks. Most recently, they lost a Sunday afternoon home game to the blazing pile of basketball badness that is the Brooklyn Nets.
Naturally, most of the commentary on the Hawks across the web remains negative. There isn’t much to be positive about. There’s a real possibility that the Hawks could fall out of the playoffs. Or worse, they could be matched up in a first round series with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
I’m sure most Hawks fans would rather be in the lottery than endure another four-game sweep at the hands of LeBron James. Anyway, let’s take a look at what the world has to say about the Hawks and this never-ending rough patch.

Add the Brooklyn Nets to the list of teams that have defeated the Hawks during this troubling seven-game losing streak. This was the most embarrassing loss yet. The Hawks were down three starters in this one, but losing to the Nets at home is something that shouldn’t happen. Thabo Sefolosha joined the already injured Paul Millsap and Kent Bazemore on the shelf. If they don’t get healthy soon there’s no telling how long the streak will last.
