  • Both teams are playing their final regular-season game. The teams will participate in the playoffs, which begin this weekend.
  • The Cavaliers have won five consecutive regular-season meetings. This season they've beaten the Hawks twice at home and once at Philips Arena.
  • The Cavaliers also swept the Hawks 4-0 in the 2009 Eastern Conference semifinals.
  • Shaquille O'Neal has been cleared to play for the Cavaliers. He has been out since Feb. 25 because of a thumb surgery.
  • Cleveland coach Mike Brown has yet to decide if All-Star forward LeBron James will play. He has sat out the past three games because Cleveland already has clinched homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs.
  • Jamal Crawford (toe) is questionable, and Jason Collins (foot) is probable for the Hawks.
