Sunday, February 13th, 2022, the Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics play their third match of the season. Atlanta won both prior meetings on November 17th (110-99) and January 28th (108-92). The final game between the clubs will occur in Boston on March 1st.
Both teams last played Friday as the Hawks got routed 121-136 by the Spurs while the Celtics beat the Nuggets 108-102.
Through two-thirds of the season, the Hawks have managed to keep their core relatively healthy. So when John Collins left the court versus the Spurs with right heel pain there was logical concern regarding the seriousness of the injury.
An MRI revealed a foot strain that will keep him sidelined until after the All-Star Break. Things could be worse, but that sort of highlights how one core player getting injured can shift a team’s chances — quickly.
Fortunately, the Hawks have an extremely deep roster with Clint Capela and Onyeka Okongwu available to fill the void of Collins. The more concerning issue is the inconsistency of Trae Young who hasn’t shot the ball particularly well from the perimeter.
He got back on track in the victory versus the Pacers shooting 6 of 9 from deep after two games that witnessed 0-4 and 0-6 efforts but again struggled versus the Spurs 2-8. He still managed to collect a double-double with 18 points and 11 assists.
Clint Capela also registered a double-double of 13 points and 11 rebounds while Bogdan Bogdanovic added 23 points. The trio of Danilo Gallinari (16), Kevin Huerter (14), and DeAndre Hunter (10) were the other double-figure scorers.
Trae Young (hip), Lou Williams (hamstring), Delon Wright (hip) are all questionable to play Sunday versus the Celtics. John Collins (foot) is out indefinitely.
With the Raptors’ one-point loss to the Nuggets, the Celtics now possess the longest winning streak in the association looking to extend it to eight games in a row.
Boston defeated the Nuggets in their last outing needing to make a comeback in the second half to erase a nine-point Denver lead. Jayson Tatum led the way with 24 points, six rebounds, five assists, and three steals.
Robert Williams III had a big night collecting a double-double of 15 points and 16 rebounds (six on the offensive glass) along with two assists, two steals, and three blocks.
In his Celtics debut, Derrick White posted 15 points, six rebounds, and two assists while Marcus Smart (22) and Jaylen Brown (12) were the other double-figure scorers.
Daniel Theis (newly acquired) was upgraded to probable for Sunday.

Free Atlanta Hawks vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
Talk about a major shift from the opening line to the updated version. To open, the oddsmakers had the Hawks favored by 3.5 points. Given how well the Celtics have played lately and being at home, I did a double-take and decided to return back later.
Sure enough, the line shifted in favor of the Celtics by 6 points — almost a 10 point shift. Although everything points to Boston winning something tells me their due for a loss and Atlanta has had their number all season.
