How Can the Hawks Beat the Celtics?

The Atlanta Hawks have the edge over the Boston Celtics so far this season. Much of their success can be attributed to their excellent ball pressure.

Over the course of three meetings, where the Hawks have won two, Atlanta have been able to force the Celtics into mistakes. Boston are averaging 14.0 turnovers per game against the Hawks, including the 8.3 steals that Atlanta are collecting from them.

Their offence can come and go, but a strong defensive effort opens up many new opportunities for the Hawks. If they can continue to pester the Celtics with their defence, Atlanta could finish the series 3-1.

Hawks Key Player: (G) Trae Young

The Atlanta Hawks’ recent blowout win had much to do with the stellar performance of Trae Young. The All-Star point guard was brilliant in his last performance and will look to carry over that form against the Celtics.

In his last game, a win over the Toronto Raptors, Young seemed unstoppable. He posted 41 points, 11 assists, and 4 rebounds on 17 of 24 shooting from the field.

Young’s stellar play wasn’t even the product of his three-point shooting. Off of his dribble threat and passing alone, Young dismantled the Raptors. If he can toy with the Boston defence in a similar way, the Hawks have a great chance.

How Can the Celtics Beat the Hawks?

The Boston Celtics have struggled in their matches with the Atlanta Hawks this season. A team with high offensive potential, Boston haven’t been an able to break down the Hawks’ defence.

Boston’s struggles against the Hawks can be seen in their three-point shooting. A 37.6% three-point shooting team in victories, the Celtics have converted on just 25.1% of their three-point attempts over three games against the Hawks.

The Hawks are athletic on the defensive side, so Boston must create good opportunities rather than settle. If Boston’s offence remains stagnant, the Hawks will find victory.

Celtics Key Player: (F) Jayson Tatum

While NBA media touts Jayson Tatum as a special star in the NBA, performances like his last game show how much Tatum can still grow.

In Tatum’s last game, a loss to the Indiana Pacers, his inefficiency from the field spelled Boston’s fate. He posted 24 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists, but shot just 7 of 22 from the field and 2 of 12 from three-point range.

The Boston Celtics need Tatum to drive their offence if they hope to win. If he can be as influential with his playmaking as he can be with his scoring, the Celtics can level the season series.
