Comeback in Store in Celtics-Hawks?

Marcus Smart Paul Millsap

The Boston Celtics looked like they were dead in the water the last time they were in Atlanta, but they’re in a much different position as the series shifts back to Georgia tied at two games apiece. Thanks to two huge victories in Beantown, the Celtics have launched themselves back into things and are riding a serious high right now.

Shark Bites
  • The Hawks are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games after consecutive losses.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 11 of the Celtics' last 14 games with one day off between games.
  • The Celtics are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games on the road.

C’s head coach Brad Stevens opted to mix things up in Game 3, shifting Jonas Jerebko and Evan Turner into the starting lineup. Boston responded by shooting 44.3 percent since the switch after being held to 34.2 percent in Games 1 and 2. Jerebko, who averaged just 4.4 points and 15.1 minutes in the regular season, has totalled 27 points and 22 rebounds in the two home wins.

Don’t fault Paul Millsap for his team’s recent losses, though. The power forward amassed 26 first-half points in Game 4 before finishing with a playoff career-high 45 along with 13 rebounds.

Betting on the Hawks has been a fruitless endeavor as of late, as Atlanta is a measly 1-5 ATS in its last six games.
