Cavaliers vs Hawks Playoffs & NBA Betting Odds

Posted by Webster Washington on 5/19/2015 5:59:38 AM

The winner of the NBA Eastern Conference title series will not only be determined by a prevailing style of play. It will also depend on who can execute that style properly. The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Atlanta Hawks appear to have contrasts in those areas as they open their series.

The Cavs enter the best of seven as the heroes who have used their brilliant talents to overcome obstacles. The Hawks are a team without superstars who have managed to get by on a few lucky plays here and there. The Cavs are flash and slash, slam and jam. The Hawks pass, pass, pass and shoot. The Cavs pose themselves as the walking wounded; Atlanta are relatively healthy.

How all of this actually plays out on the court remains to be seen. But there are similarities in the two teams. Both of them won three straight games to take their last series in six games. They’ve both had to defeat star-studded foes to reach this point. And they both have young coaches and a share of young players to make play unpredictable.

The most certain thing about the whole series is LeBron James. He has the talent, ability and the post-season experience to be the most reliable factor in the series. And with his co-stars, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving, on the bench or fighting injury, James knows he’ll have to take at least some games into his own hands. The Hawks will likely have no one to hold James at bay, so they will have to counter with their usual consistent, team play. The matchup should be intriguing.
