The Atlanta Hawks may have been the worst team to reach the 2014 NBA postseason, but they certainly didn't play like it once they got there.

The No. 8 seed Hawks took it to the No. 1 Indiana Pacers for seven tough games, coming up just short in the fourth quarter in Game 6 before the Pacers turned up the heat in a 92-80 win.

Pacers coach Frank Vogel went out of the way to praise his opponent after the win, per the Hawks' official Twitter account: "They gave us all we can handle...They certainly have a bright future with Mike (Budenholzer) in charge."

Indeed, the club seems to have found a keeper in Mike Budenholzer, who kept his team playing hard despite myriad injuries during the regular season.

Here are the five biggest needs for Atlanta as they prepare for the 2014-15 season.
