Hawks vs. Boston Celtics: Hawks fell victim to the big quarter once against the Celtics
Hawks vs. Boston Celtics: We described how the Hawks continue to do the same aggressive things that championship teams do. And how their defense has improved to the highly sought-after level of “above average” in recent games, as evidenced by their 13-point third-quarter victory over Boston while allowing 31 points to the Celtics, who were down Jaylen Brown after less than three minutes. In addition, they’ve won three of their last five games.
Trae Young’s 31-point performance was a waste. He only made two of seven three-point attempts. Bogdan Bogdanovic’s 25 points off the bench were also a waste. Moreover, Danilo Gallinari chipped in with 12 points and eight rebounds. However, he was 1-for-4 from beyond the arc, and Kevin Huerter only had nine points on 4-of-13 shooting (1-of-5 from 3P). Atlanta has already lost two of its first three games. Since returning from the All-Star break.

Hawks vs. Celtics: However, they had a score of 1.7 points in the fourth quarter. Some of this is due to the waste of time. Also, as the other team’s desperate attempts to return, as bad as they’ve been in the third against Boston, they’ve been better in the fourth. In the fourth quarter. They also reached a 25-20 score. The 13 points in the third quarter were their second-lowest total and After only a nine-point quarter. In December, against the Philadelphia 76ers, in the fourth quarter. They’re 6-18 in games and haven’t scored more than 20 points in a quarter in any of them.
Lastly, John Collins’ ultimate comeback will be helpful. This team is dealing with concerns that go beyond personnel. Furthermore, even their potential contributes to the season-long inconsistency we’ve seen from them.
