Boston Celtics vs Atlanta Hawks Analysis

Two nights ago, the Boston Celtics played the Portland Trail Blazers to a 115-93 defeat that looked closer than it actually was. Jayson Tatum scored 30 points and Derrick White added 21 points and five assists while Al Horford finished with 17 points, six rebounds, and five assists despite playing more minutes than usual. While center Robert Williams missed another game due to a strained left hamstring, both Tatum and Horford returned after missing Monday’s overtime loss at Cleveland due to sore knees and backs. They snapped a four-game losing streak with victory, and Celtics coach Joe Mazzulla noted that playing the style of basketball that had them at the top of the Eastern Conference standings heading into the All-Star break will be their primary focus going into the home stretch.

On Friday evening, Atlanta Hawks is in action against the Washington Wizards and on the second leg of a back-to-back. Two nights prior, they faced off against this same Wizards team and came away with an impressive 122-120 win. De’Andre Hunter made an important three-point play with under two minutes left to give Atlanta the lead for good – they had trailed by as many as 15 points before going on a 14-0 run at the end of the third quarter and start of fourth to pull away by six. Trae Young led Atlanta with 28 points and 10 assists on 11 of 14 shooting from the field. Atlanta is at 0.500 heading into this rematch against Washington on Friday night, currently sitting eighth place in an intense Eastern Conference race. They have performed better at home this season (18-13) compared to their 15-20 road record; they need every win they can get as they strive for a playoff berth. Their next game against DC takes place Friday night before this one at home for another chance at redemption.

Boston Celtics vs Atlanta Hawks Free Pick

Boston has been the class of the East, but they haven’t exactly been at their most efficient after the All-Star break. Even though it is back-to-backs, Atlanta will come out far hungrier and beat any spread despite Boston starting as a favorite. Ignore any points spread and take them on the money line instead, according to NBA betting analytics.
