The 2014–15 Atlanta Hawks season is the 65th season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the 47th in Atlanta.[1] Their Southeast Division championship was the first for the Hawks since winning the Central Division in 1994. It was the best finish by the team since finishing first in the Eastern Conference since the 1993–94 season. This was the first time since the Southwest Division was created for the 2004–05 season that the division title was not won by a Floridian team. The Hawks finished the season with a franchise record in wins with a 60-22 record, earning them the first seed in the Eastern conference and home court advantage for the conference. The Hawks' season ended with a 0-4 Eastern Conference Finals loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Hawks are the first #1 seed to get swept in a playoff series since the Detroit Pistons in 2003. Their 22 wins improvement was the second largest by a team that made playoffs two years in a row in full seasons behind the 1995–96 Chicago Bulls (25 wins).
