ATS Preview: Game Six Hawks vs Nets

Friday, 1 May, 2015


The first round of the NBA playoffs is just about concluded. Not many folks would have predicted the Hawks and Nets to last this long. Honestly, the first two games happened to fall the Hawks way or the Hawks could be at a deficit in this series currently.

After a 2-0 premium selection day here at, Thursday, Friday is officially a board pass. MLB seems like a tough board. I’ll instead use it as an evaluation day for future games. I’ve also passed on game six between the Hawks and Nets. Lets discuss game six briefly.

In a series that featured four quality games and then a bit of a pull away from the Hawks in game five, one has to wonder if the Hawks just put the dagger in the Nets Friday. They’re the #1 seed of course but clearly they’ve been a team that has not had the look of one. The Nets are not an offensive team yet have had contributions from a vast amount of players.

Inside they’re struggling to contain Lopez and have also had a tough time guarding the perimeter. On the other side of things the Nets aren’t a poor defensive team and have made a solid effort at getting after Kyle Korver. Lets not forget their head coach in Lionel Hollins was formerly the coach of the hard-nosed Grizzlies team.

From my eyes I just have not seen enough from the Hawks to back them in this game six spot. Likewise, there is no way I will back a below .500 eighth seeded team at this point in a series either. This is a low number for the circumstances but I’d rather use it as an assessing day.

Just because it’s the only NBA game on the board Friday does not mean it requires action. Saturday’s board should feature 2-3 plays here at
