Atlanta Hawks Team News 

The Hawks are an excellent example of how a franchise should rebuild. Great credit goes to team coach Nate MacMillan, who made a great team and distributed roles even better. The most important thing is that he found a player in college who will be the main player of the team and built the team around him, of course, it is Trae Young, who is playing top basketball this season as well and recorded 27 points on average and almost 10 assists per game, and is the most deserving that the Hawks are highly ranked in the East. More precisely, they occupy third place with a score of 9-5, and in the last round, they defeated the Bucks away from home.

Now they are playing against the second-best team in the East, last year’s finalists Boston Celtics are coming as their guests. The Hawks have a lot of widths this season. They added the great Dejounte Murray to the roster, who nearly finished with a triple-double average last season. He plays great in both directions and works well with Young.

The Hawks are a big force under the basket. Capela and Collins dominate there, and the young Okongwu is on his way to becoming the new Capela with his defensive qualities.

One thing is certain, this is the match of the night, and we are expecting top basketball, and the Hawks will try to defend their home court and end the Celtic’s streak.

Boston Celtics Team News 

The Celtics entered this season with a lot of problems, primarily with injuries and internal team problems. Namely, coach Udoku was replaced by Joe Mazzulla. Udoka led the Celtics to the Finals last season, but due to a violation of team rules, he was suspended for a year. The big question was how will it look with Mazzulla. Especially since at the beginning of the season, Rob Williams, who is the first defensive five in the league, and Gallinari, who is predicted to be one of the best sixth players in the league, are absent.

But, the Celtics are playing a few steps higher compared to last season, primarily offensively. First of all, thanks to the MVP games provided by Jayson Tatum, who is averaging 32.3 points. Very important news for the Celtics is that Jaylen Brown returned for the Celtics in the match against Oklahoma and played a great game where he scored 26 points.

The Celtics are on a 7-game winning streak and have taken over first place in the East. And in the last match, they showed their championship character and came back after a -17 point difference in the middle of the third quarter and beat the great Oklahoma City Thunder.

What is very important for the Celtics is that the defense, which is their trademark, is not yet playing at even 50% of their capabilities. Also, the support staff does their job brilliantly. Grant Williams, Hauser, and White, all make great contributions on both ends of the court.

Atlanta Hawks vs. Boston Celtics Prediction 

This match is very close, and it can go either way, but we think the Celtics win this match, and the reason is the wider rotation in which the Celtics play, and the great form in which Jayson Tatum is playing, He is finally consistent and mature, and with the help, Brown leads the Celtics to the top of the East.

Bogdan Bogdanović is still missing for the Hawks, while Rob Williams and Danilo Gallinari will be absent for the Celtics, while Brogdon is questionable.
