Coach Bud had the difficult task of taking over a team that appears focused on winning and remaining competitive but, sadly, has drifted into near lottery-level status.

Although the Hawks were able to hold on to the third seed for a couple of weeks after Horford went down for the year, they have struggled mightily since then. They are 9-19 since his injury and went a disappointing 2-10 in the month of February.
