Game preview Celtics vs Hawks

The Boston Celtics earned another victory against the Atlanta Hawks without too much trouble and look poised to continue winning with Game 3 set for Friday night. The second seed in the Eastern Conference is determined not to stop its winning ways.

Can the Hawks get back on track at home?

Since November, the Hawks have experienced a dramatic transformation. Perhaps one of the more significant alterations was Nate McMillan being dismissed and replaced by Quin Snyder (former head coach of the Utah Jazz).

These decisions were made following a season marred by turmoil, including issues within the locker room and speculation regarding Trae Young being traded soon. Yet despite all this turmoil, Atlanta won impressively at the Play-In Tournament and secured their spot in the playoffs.

As they look to show that they belong in the playoffs and secure a win on Friday night, Tatum and his Celtic teammates may make things difficult for the Hawks as it may be difficult for them to cover the spread or even win this matchup.

Can the Celtics continue their dominance on the road?

On Friday night, the Boston Celtics will travel to Atlanta for Game 3 of their NBA Playoffs series against the Hawks in Atlanta. Recognizing its importance, Boston is focused on maintaining high-performance levels ahead of this pivotal contest.

Their primary goal is to maintain momentum and set themselves up with an opportunity to sweep their opponents out of the playoffs.

The Celtics secured a 2-0 series advantage against the Hawks behind Jayson Tatum’s outstanding performance. While the game started slowly for Boston, eventually defeating Atlanta 119-106, with Tatum scoring 29 points en route to an eventual win in Boston. While Atlanta took an initial 22-11 lead early in the first quarter before they quickly recovered their composure, by quarter’s end, they held onto a 28-25 advantage.

On Friday, The Green Team will look to extend their dominance on the road and secure a 3-0 series lead. After winning both games of this series by 13 points each time out, covering a five-point spread may prove achievable for them.

Our Betting Pick for Today – Bet the Celtics -5

The Celtics have won seven out of their last ten games against Atlanta this season and seven straight overall, proving they can score easily against a Hawks team which ranks 19th in defensive efficiency and 25th in points allowed per game (117.4) at home this year.
