NEXT 6 GAME OUTLOOK: STORMY
The Hawks next 6 game forecast looks rough, to say the least. They are are the clear underdog in 9 out of the 6 games, and just one game where they are expected to be competitive. The most likely scenario over the next 6 games is a record of 1-5 (37% chance). Their chances of winning 3 or more are 18.3%. At #14 in the conference, they are behind the Bulls by half a game. There is only a -0.11 advantage in projected wins over their next 6 games so we do not expect them to pick up ground in the conference. They are ahead of the Cavaliers by half a game. In the short-term, we do predict much of a change in the gap between them and the Cavaliers. There is only a 0.33 advantage in projected wins over their next 6 games. Our Fatigue Index ranks teams based on travel miles, time zones crossed, days off since their last game and based on these metrics the Hawks are the 2nd most fatigued team heading into the next game. Over the next few weeks, the Hawks are playing 8 games, traveling 2851 miles crossing 1 time zone. They rank #11 on the Fatigue Index during this time period.
