Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Hawks vs Celtics

Rival Team: Boston Celtics

The Hawks-Celtics rivalry spans over five decades and is one of the oldest in the NBA. The two teams first met during the 1949-50 seasons when the Hawks joined the league. Since then, these two teams have met in the playoffs eleven times, four of which occurred in the finals. Although the Celtics have gotten the better of the Hawks, for the most part, there is still plenty of bad blood on the court when these two meet.

Hawks vs Magic

Rival Team: Orlando Magic

The Hawks and Magic both play in the Southeast division, which has led to the creation of a fierce intra-divisional rivalry. The rivalry really took off in 2004 when Dwight Howard was drafted by the Magic and Josh Smith by the Hawks, since then the two teams have faced off in the playoffs twice with each team taking one of the series.
