This game features the Celtics traveling to Atlanta to face the Hawks.
Both teams are fighting for playoff positioning, with the Celtics facing key Eastern Conference opponents to close out the season.
Isaiah Thomas is one of the best point guards in the NBA, and has been the key ingredient to Boston’s success this season.
Firmly in the driver’s seat for the #1 seed, Thomas and the Celtics will hope to get home court advantage by stringing up key victories.
Almost dealt away at the trade deadline, Jae Crowder has proven to be a focal point of the Boston offense as the season comes to a close. He had a rough outing against the Knicks on Sunday.
He finished with only 8 points and 5 rebounds, but should elevate his play against Paul Millsap.
Al Horford may be given the game to rest coming off of a home game against the defending champions, but if he does get the nod his matchup against Dwight Howard will be a good one.
Expect 13 points and 7 rebounds from Horford in this one.
Atlanta has an inside track at a good playoff position, and may be able to avoid Cleveland if they get out of the first two rounds. This talented team is led by Paul Millsap and will be dangerous in the playoffs.
Millsap has struggled shooting the ball recently, but should be able to get back on track in this game. The last meeting saw him score 17 points and grab 10 rebounds, so there is no reason why he can’t do the same in this contest.
Dwight Howard is playing like an NBA All Star, posting a double-double in 10 straight games.
He had a double-double in the last meeting which was an easy Hawks victory, and I don’t see why he can’t have another great performance.
