The Boston Celtics continue their road trip, and face the Atlanta Hawks in what will be a game of top and bottom Eastern Conference opponents.
The Celtics are 8-2 through their first 10 games, while the Atlanta Hawks are 2-8 to start the season. Boston has won eight games in a row. The Hawks had dropped eight games in a row before winning their last game at Cleveland.
Last season, the Celtics and the Hawks faced each other three times. The Hawks won the three games series, 2-1. Winning their most recent two head to head matchups last season.
The Boston Celtics are looking like one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference to start the year. All Star guard Gordon Heyward is out, but the Celtics continue to win games.
Acquiring a championship leader in Kyrie Irving this off season, looks to be what the Celtics needed. He has his team playing good basketball. The Celtics are 5-1 on the road this year.
Aside from Irving’s leadership abilities, he is a hell of a basketball player. He is leading the team in points (21.0) and assists (5.6) per game this year. The emergence of Jaylon Brown as a second scoring option in Heyward’s absence has been the difference maker.
Brown is averaging 15.8 points and 6.6 rebounds per game in his second NBA season. Jayson Tatum averaging 13.6 points over his first 10 NBA games and Al Hortford has also been a key contributor. Averaging 14.6 points and 7.7 rebounds this season.
Despite the Celtics offensive success, defensively the squad is first in the NBA in points allowed. Boston is allowing a mere 93 points per game this year. Something you don’t see anymore in today’s leauge.
As Irving goes, so do the Celtics. The team is on a mission this year. With their balance of veterans and young talent, the Celtics are the best team in the East right now.
The Atlanta Hawks got a surprising win last night over the Cleveland Cavaliers, 117-115. Dennis Schroder was solid for the Hawks. He poured in 28 points and nine assists on 9 of 13 shooting in the win. The Hawks had seven players in double figures against Cleveland.
Atlanta’s underdog win last night snapped an eight game losing skid. The Hawks have been bad this year. They are scoring 102.7 points (24th) and allowing 110.6 points (26th) per game on the season.
Their lack of leadership and a go to scorer has been part of their low rankings early this season.
As the season moves along, hopefully the Hawks can string together some wins. Currently sitting six games under .500 is not a good look. Especially in the lowly Eastern Conference.
Dennis Schorder will have his hands full tonight against the talented Celtics back court.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
Expect the Boston Celtics to keep the Atlanta Hawks from scoring over 100 points in this matchup. Boston should have no problems limiting the Hawks below average offense tonight.
This game has road blowout written all over it. Atlanta is off an unlikely win against the Cavaliers, which should set up a let down game on a road/home back to back.
