When the Atlanta Hawks take the Philips Arena court for practices and games this NBA playoffs, they'll do so walking by an impressive motivational display: a slew of signs designed by Atlanta metropolitan area students.

The Hawks began their postseason with a 99–92 home win over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday, and Game 2 is slated for a 7 p.m. ET Wednesday tipoff. Center Al Horford said on Tuesday that he would play, despite sustaining a dislocated finger in Game 1. Horford recorded 10 points and 10 rebounds in 34 minutes of Game 1.

This is a pretty cool gesture by the Hawks to get the community involved in their postseason run. If you still need an NBA team to root for, however, check out SI.com's guide to who to root for if you don't follow basketball.
