The Atlanta Hawks need a big victory after losing five of their last seven games. The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 101.4 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 100 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Paul Millsap is averaging 17.9 points and 9.3 rebounds while Jeff Teague is averaging 16.8 points and 6.3 assists. Al Horford is grabbing 7.1 rebounds and Dennis Schroder is dishing 4.8 assists. The Atlanta Hawks are shooting 36 percent from deep and are getting 72.5 points from their starting unit. However, the Hawks are shooting just 43.7 percent from the field in their last five games. The Hawks have won 10 of their last 14 home games. Kent Bazemore and Tiago Splitter are questionable.
The Celtics are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. NBA Southeast. The Hawks are 13-32 ATS in their last 45 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. Celtics are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Atlanta and 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall.
The Hawks have to turn things around eventually and it might as well come at home where they're very tough to beat. While the Celtics have been road warriors for a while now, the Hawks are the better team and need a feel good win to get back on track. Give me Atlanta to cover the reasonable chalk.
