Hawks seal 10th straight playoff appearance when Bulls lose

As the Cavs turn: Drama subsided, NBA champs hitting stride

As the Cavs turn: Drama subsided, NBA champs hitting stride

Furthermore, the Hawks had a back-to-back against Charlotte and IN to close the season.

That said, the Celtics, Raptors, and now the Hawks are teams to watch against the Cavaliers, but again, a seven-game playoff series is another story for those teams, including the Celtics. Especially when Cleveland has revenge on their minds.

Live Score Updates are available on official Twitter pages of Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks. They were obviously embarrassed by Friday's confusing loss. Irving was attacking relentlessly from the start, making his lackluster Friday night effort feel like a distant memory. The Hawks shot just under 47 percent in the game. It was 65-46 at halftime and 93-67 after three quarters. "It was good in the second half, but that was too late". The Cavs still led 87-85 with 9:02 left in the fourth quarter. Cleveland is on the front-end of a back-to-back, but LeBron James has already declared that the Cavs are not resting anyone until they clinch the #1 seed.

A Kent Bazemore corner three with less than thirty seconds left rimmed out, taking the air out of Philips Arena.

Tim Hardaway Jr. added 21 points to help Atlanta beat Cleveland for the second straight time, over three days. They had a slim 1.5-game lead over the #7 through #9 seeds, who were all tied at 38-40. It appears that the Cavs are rewriting the records of the league in more ways than one.

"As a group, our energy was very low", LeBron James said. But a two from Malcolm Delaney and free throws by Millsap got the Hawks within two. James was then whistled for a foul on a three-point attempt by Paul Millsap with 8.3 showing on the clock.

Boston trailed by as many as 20 points before rallying back in the fourth quarter.

Despite the 32-point triple-double, James was unable to kickstart the Cavs offense in the final quarter, which saw the Hawks outscore the Cavs, 44-18. On the ensuing inbounds play, Irving was tied up, with the Hawks getting the jump and Millsap's connecting at the buzzer to send the game into overtime.

The Atlanta Hawks had six losses of their last ten matches.

Mike Conley led Memphis with 15 points. The Hawks won in overtime 126-125. This is a team that is often down, but never out. They now sit in the nine seed, tied with the eight-seeded Chicago Bulls and one game behind the Indiana Pacers. Coach Tyronn Lue called it "just stupid", and it was.

James wasn't the problem for the Cavs.

Irving scored 15 points in the first quarter. The Hawks grabbed hold of this game and finished the job.

Millsap scored a team-high 22 points and had nine rebounds. He was also 11-for-11 from the free-throw line.

Mike Dunleavy added 20 for Atlanta and got a little revenge against the Cavs, who tossed him in as part of a trade for Kyle Korver in February.

Boston star Isaiah Thomas led the game scoring with 35 points while Jae Crowder had 24.

Fourth-year German guard Dennis Schröder replaced Teague as a starter and eight-time NBA All-Star Dwight Howard was signed to shore up the paint.

Marjanovic also had 10 rebounds, and Darrun Hilliard scored 11 of his 13 points in the fourth. Howard had 19 points, five rebounds, and a pair of assists.

The win vaulted Atlanta past the Milwaukee Bucks for fifth spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

Hawks: Host Charlotte on Tuesday.
