1* Free Play Atlanta Hawks.

I released a free play on the Hawks in Game 1, who looked fantastic in the first half, only to fall apart and implode in the second. It obviously goes without saying that Atlanta can pretty much kiss its championship hopes goodbye if it falls into a 2-0 hole heading back to Cleveland. So in a do-or-die game like this, I think the No. 1 seed is going to find a way to get the job done at the end of the night. Note that LeBron James and Kyrie Irving are now both battling ankle injuries. DeMarre Carroll is listed as day-to-day for the Hawks. Cleveland would need a career high 28 points from JR Smith to prevail in Game 1, but note that not a single other bench player even got a point for the Cavaliers; I think the visitors lack of depth combined with the injuries to key players will prove to be the difference in Game 2. Consider a second look at ATLANTA.
