Atlanta will most likely tank this season, although a number of exchanges should benefit Lloyd Pierce’s team. Clint Capela came from Houston, which should affect the defensive aspect of the Hawks’ game – so far their defense is one of the weakest in the League. In general, the work under the ring will now be more effective. In addition, it is well suited for the model that is being built under T. Young, where peak-and-rolls will be of great importance: Atlanta is already one of the teams with the largest number of them, though their implementation very often deceives the the Hawks. But he will not take part in this match, as well as a whole cohort of other players who are still in doubt.
Of course, Atlanta scores a lot, too, but when faced with well-defending teams, such as Boston, the Hawks always have problems. So it was recently with Boston, Toronto, Oklahoma, Dallas.
So far, Atlanta is a team where the attacking potential significantly exceeds the defensive, which is why the Hawks practically close the eastern conference.
Boston is spending a very good period of the season: Brad Stevens’ players won 5 consecutive victories, which allowed them to once again settle in the top three strongest teams in the East with a difference of 35-15. Celtics even without missing a meeting with Orlando Smart and Walker looked very decent in attack and defense. This is because the young Tatum and Brown are in good shape, and Howard has significantly improved his performance in recent matches.
There is still a problem with the position of the center – Theis and Kanter are not the strongest representatives of their roles, but in general even their skills are enough at this stage. Celtics are one of the most balanced teams in terms of attack and defense, and there are no special problems with the bench.

Hawks vs Celtics Prediction
The Celtics must very easily defeat such a desparate opponent. First, Boston is significantly superior to Atlanta in overall integrity, in organizing the game. Atlanta cannot boast of such a balanced roster at the moment. Although a good center has come in the person of Capela, in this match he will not played yet, and a large number of players, including Young, continue to be listed as questionable. Secondly, Atlanta has virtually no defence, which is why they stably miss a lot.
Our prediction: Boston Celtics will win.
