(Reuters) - The Atlanta Hawks qualified for the National Basketball Association playoffs for the seventh straight season on Saturday with a 98-85 win over the Miami Heat.

The Hawks claimed the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference with the win, a result which eliminated the New York Knicks from the playoffs race.

Atlanta, who hold the longest streak of postseason appearances in the East, will meet either Miami or Indiana in the first round of the playoffs.
