Dallas need win and they need Den to lose to grab that 6th seed to face Lakeshow in round 1. Utah can't get any higher.

I would think the BOOBcats would want to win to keep from  setting the alltime worst losing pct,and the knicks would rest melo and amare.

Go to nba.com and read it. Hawks can not get any better seed. End of story.

Yuice20,

Don't try to be smart behind. Like I said above go to nba.com and read for yourself before trying to educate me.

Atlanta (39-26) will be the fifth seed in the Eastern
Conference and begin the playoffs against Boston,
guaranteed the No. 4 seed as the Atlantic Division
champion. The Hawks, though, are one game ahead of the
Celtics and can secure home court for the series with a
victory Thursday or a loss by Boston to Milwaukee.

Read what Doc Rivers say. And yes, Hawks do need a win.

Having already secured the fourth seed in the Eastern
Conference by winning the Atlantic Division, Boston can
earn home-court advantage in the first round against
Atlanta if it beats Milwaukee and the Hawks lose to Dallas
on Thursday. The fifth-seeded Hawks have a one-game
lead over Boston, but the Celtics own the tiebreaker
between the teams.

"It would be nice to put some more pressure and force
Atlanta to have to win," Rivers said.

Don't think Dallas care too much about their last game.

"A sixth or seventh seed is generally gonna be viewed as an underdog-type team and that's OK," coach Rick Carlisle told the Mavericks' official website. "But either way, we've got to approach it the same way. We can't look for external motivations to get fired up to defend a championship."

We're excited, and there's gonna be 15 other teams excited about the possibility as well," Carlisle said. "And we want to be healthy, we want to make sure we're thinking the right way, we want to make sure we have an edge and to go into this thing -- and when I say 'this thing' I mean the game Thursday and games beyond -- with a mental edge and a real understanding for exactly how we've got to play to be successful."

as for me tnt games i'd focus on because only those who know what's going on are really going to hammer the other games

knix-bobcats on tnt is an absolute gem of a puzzle to try to figure out

unless we're in the locker rooms who the hell knows at this time of the year.  JMO GL fellas
