The Big Upset - On April 8, 2017, Atlanta Hawks upset the Cavaliers in Cleveland, 114-100. With all of Cleveland’s star players, including LeBron James, everyone expected the strong Eastern Conference team to clean sweep the Hawks. This expectation was raised by the fact that the Hawks were playing without some of their biggest names, including Dennis Schroder, Thabo Sefolosha, Dwight Howard, Kent Bazemore and Paul Millsap. Somehow, Tim Hardaway Jr., Kris Humphries and Malcolm Delaney rallied together and managed to beat the best team in the East.
