The Atlanta Hawks fell to the Miami Heat 115-91 on Wednesday night and with the loss dropped to 17-23 on the season and 12th place in the Eastern Conference.
The Hawks entered the season with sky-high expectations after their run to the Eastern Conference Finals last season, but have failed to meet them.
While dealing with a team-wide COVID issue, fans may have been patient. But as players returned and the issues haven't subsided, many wonder exactly what this Hawks team is and if they will be able to turn things around in time.
The NBA trade deadline is just under a month away now (Feb. 10). Hawks GM Travis Schlenk has alluded to the possibility of making some moves, possibly some big ones. If things don't flip soon, even a blockbuster may not be enough to save the season.
