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.

What kind of roster will Coach Budz have in 2014-15? Much will depend on health, especially the recovery of their best player.

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