Atlanta Hawks Tickets – The New Breed of Hawks
2014-2015 Atlanta Hawks ticket info
Atlanta Hawks tickets didn’t sell last year; there’s no sugarcoating it. The Hawks finished 28th in the NBA in total attendance for the 2013-14 season, averaging 14,339 fans per home game. Despite an eighth-place finish in the Eastern Conference and a playoff appearance, Hawks tickets went largely unsold last season.
Atlanta finished the regular season at 38-44 but still made the postseason in what was a down year for the East, where they fell to the Indiana Pacers in a hard-fought seven-game series. This season the roster is slightly different, but the Hawks can still contend for the playoffs, as they’re accustomed to doing.
Philips Arena seats 18,118 and fans who buy Atlanta Hawks tickets will have the chance to see home games featuring one of the Eastern Conference’s deepest backcourts. Jeff Teague will man the point again this season, and is coming off a solid season in 2013-14. Teague averaged 16.5 points per game and a 17.1 PER, both career-highs. His assist numbers were down slightly, but the absence of big man Al Horford due to injury likely contributed to that decline. Teague should bounce back nicely in that department this season.
In addition to Teague, Atlanta’s roster boasts reigning three-point shooting percentage champion Kyle Korver. Korver converted on a ridiculous 47.2% of his three-point shots last season, the best such rate in the NBA. Having Korver on the wing will be a nice safety blanket for the Hawks this year, especially if opposing teams focus their efforts on Horford in the paint.
Teague and Korver are Hawks mainstays, but the inclusion of PG Shelvin Mack gives Atlanta considerable lineup options. Mack coexisted well with Teague in a two point guard formation used by the team for much of last season, averaging 13.1 points per 36 minutes of time on the court. Mack isn’t by any means a threat to steal the no. 1 PG spot from Teague, but his presence as the team’s third- or fourth-best guard allows the coaching staff flexibility and peace of mind in case of injury.
Hawks tickets are likely to be undervalued this season, especially for a playoff-caliber team. Teague, Korver, and Mack should combine to provide the firepower that can lift the team to the postseason once again.

Atlanta Hawks tickets have been in a state of transition for the past few years as the Hawks seek out the combination that will make the competitive in the Southeast Division with the formidable Miami Heat. GM Danny Ferry had plenty of time to study the winning process in his time at San Antonio and he’s making changes that will allow Atlanta to improve their roster while still reaming nimble enough to compete in the free agent market. Hawks tickets holders will have to keep a roster card around for the next few seasons but they’ll like what they see happening. A quick glance reveals only a couple of long terms Hawks still remaining, Al Horford and Jeff Teague.
Fans with Atlanta Hawks tickets will enjoy watching Teague again in the 2013-14 NBA season as he has become one of the more productive players in the last few seasons. Atlanta spent money to keep him, committing over $30 million for his services. Last season Teague dished out 7.2 assists and maintaned a shooting average of around 45%, a number that should improve as he becomes a focus of the Hawks offense. Horford is more of a gamble but a gamble that should pay off. Once he regained his health after a chest injury last season he’s looked good, racking up plenty of playing time. His 6’ 10” presence at center was a linchpin for Atlanta both offensively and defensively.
Atlanta Hawks tickets will bring plenty of new faces, most notable veterans Paul Millsap and Elton Brand. With Millsap around the Hawks can afford to keep Horford in the middle. Millsap is able to make things happen from both the inside and beyond three-point range. Brand has become a fixture in the NBA after over a decade of service and his game shows no signs of slowing down. Indications are that he’ll be used sparingly and provide quality depth in tight games.
Atlanta Hawks tickets are going to bring plenty of changes in the next few seasons. New Head Coach Mike Budenholzer is installing a new offense, the roster is new and improved, and Atlanta is well positioned to continue the hunt for additional talent in the coming years. Dealing with the Miami Heat and the rest of the Eastern Conference is going to become easier of all goes as planned. Good things are coming to Philips Arena and Atlanta Hawks tickets are providing the ride.
