History Awaits

In lieu of a standard game preview (plus your Game 4 recap, if needed) and in the interests of perspective, let us be reminded that the Atlanta Hawks:
  • Have not won a playoff series without holding home-court advantage since May 5, 1996
  • Have not clinched a playoff series with a win on the road since that day
  • Have not won a playoff series without playing the maximum number of possible games since May 1, 1987
Has it been pretty so far? No.
Have the Hawks won the series yet? No.
If they do win tonight, would it be, by the franchise's standards, historic? Yes.
