Atlanta Hawks vs Boston Celtics Analysis

The Atlanta Hawks are trying hard to dethrone the No. 2 seed Boston Celtics from the conference. Although they won Game 3 on Friday at home, Boston came back strong on Sunday night and took care of business. The Hawks had to play catch-up all game long. At one point they got within 4 points just before halftime but the Celtics made up ground quickly after that and took an 11 point advantage into halftime, leaving the Hawks behind in their tracks for the remainder of the contest. There were times where they came close, but ultimately the Celtics always responded and won by 8 points 129-121. Rebounds were collected to a total of 42 with 11 coming off offensive boards. At the free throw line, Atlanta converted 21 of 24 attempts for an 87.5% rate – this meant they ended the game with a 43.9% field goal percentage and made 14 out of 37 attempts from distance. Dejounte Murray made up for that deficit by hitting a meaningless 3 at the buzzer to cut it to 8. Trae Young led all scorers with 35 points and 15 assists; Deandre Hunter added 27. No one is currently listed as injured; however, Murray should be monitored closely after coming into contact with an official after the game and acting violently towards them; this matter is currently under investigation and possible disciplinary measures could be taken by the league.

On Sunday, the Boston Celtics made quick work of the Hawks by defeating them 129-121 to open up a 3-12 series lead against Atlanta and return home where they can finish things out and rest before facing the Sixers – who already swept the Nets. The Hawks had 24 fouls for this contest, sending the Celtics to the charity stripe 25 times for free throw attempts. Additionally, they turned over 16 times while getting 4 steals. Finally, the Celtics managed to collect 40 defensive boards and 9 offensive boards totalling 49 in this matchup. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown each led with 31 points for Boston during this victory. Brown unmasked himself midway through the game and it immediately changed his performance, going 11 for 15 after de-masking. Marcus Smart scored 19 points while Derrick White registered 18 of his own. Malcom Brogdon contributed 14 off the bench while Robert Williams stood out with 13 points and 15 rebounds.
