Atlanta saw their stock drop yet again in the ESPN Power Rankings after splitting their two games this past week.
The Hawks took a one-point victory over the Toronto Raptors, Wednesday, who just before the game traded away star players Jose Calderon and Ed Davis. It was, however, a confidence booster for the Atlanta team that has seen more wins go in favor of the opposing team in these one-possession games.
Chicago stopped whatever confidence the makeshift Hawks were putting together, blowing out the Atlanta squad for the second time this season, Saturday night. The Bulls were missing key players Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer and Derrick Rose in the contest.
In the upcoming week the Hawks will match up against the Indiana Pacers, Memphis Grizzlies and New Orleans Hornets.
