It’s a battle between two Southeast division heavyweights as the Hornets face the Hawks. The standings atop the division couldn’t be closer between the division-leading Hornets at 27-24, the second place Hawks at 28-25, and the third place Heat a half game behind at 27-25. Not only does this game have implications about who might win the division (which is ultimately meaningless, but it’s fun to have bragging rights), it may also factor heavily into which of these two teams makes the playoffs.
