ter sweeping the Detroit Pistons in the first round, the Cleveland Cavaliershave had a bit of a break. While they’ve been off, they’ve simply had to wait. Not much has happened in that week for Cleveland.
Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks advanced the second round on the heels of a 4-2 series win over the Boston Celtics. It took a bit for the Hawks to separate themselves, but the Hawks eventually advanced to the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
The Cavs and Hawks will now square off in a rematch of last year’s Eastern Conference Finals. The tables, though, are turned a bit. Last year, the Hawks were the East’s No. 1 seed. This time around, the Cavs are the No. 1 seed and are the clear favorites to advance.
Who: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Atlanta Hawks
When: Monday, May 1 at 7 p.m.
