Atlanta Hawks vs Boston Celtics – Game Predictions

The Boston Celtics were so dominant in the opening two games of the series that made it look like this will be one of those quick series. game 3 changed the perspective of the series with a great performance by the Hawks in front of their crowd. The Celtics are still in control of the series but this game may prove to be decisive in the series.

Prediction 1: Boston Celtics to Cover the Spread (-6)

The Boston Celtics had 5 consecutive wins over the Atlanta before the Hawks won Game 3. Quinn Snyder’s players performed on top level but it is very unlikely they will be able to repeat that. The Celtics are rock solid in every game and will regain control of the series tonight. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are simply to much for any defense in the league especially for the Hawks. They will both have a good scoring night which will eventually led to Celtics winning the game by covering the -6 points spread.

Prediction 2: Bogdan Bogdanovic over 12.5 points

Bogdan Bogdanovic had a difficult season missing significant time with injury. He lost the starting spot in the Hawks lineup but he didn’t fail when it comes to productivity. The Serbian has been through many intense games in his career and he is used to play under pressure. He managed that extremely well in the previous game scoring 15 points on 75% shooting. He averaged 14 points per game during the regular season and the total point margin is set on 12.5 for him tonight. That will be no problem for Bogi to cover.

Hawks vs Celtics Preview – Can the Hawks tied the series?

The Hawks shot 56% from the field including making 15 three-pointers on 44% in Game 3 to get on the board in the series against the Celtics. They will need another good shooting night mainly from their top scorer Trae Young in order to tie the series. The Celtics are a great defensive team and that will not be easy at all.
