Boston Celtics vs Atlanta Hawks 4/27/2023 Picks, Predictions and Tips

East 1st Round – Game 6, BOS leads series 3-2

On Thursday night, the Atlanta Hawks will welcome the Boston Celtics to their home court at State Farm Arena for a pivotal game in the Eastern Conference. Despite the Celtics holding a 6-2 record against the Hawks this season, Atlanta’s impressive late-game comeback in game five means that this is a must-win game for both teams. 

For the Celtics, avoiding a game seven is crucial, and they’ll be looking to build on their strong road record and previous victory in Atlanta. However, they’ll need to step up defensively against the Hawks’ dynamic duo, while also improving their own three-point shooting and getting more production from their frontcourt players. Boston is averaging 119.8 points on 51.5 percent shooting and allowing 115 points on 45.5 percent shooting. SF Jayson Tatum is averaging 26.6 points and 9.2 rebounds while SF Jaylen Brown is averaging 25.6 points and 3.2 assists. SG Derrick White is the third double-digit scorer and PG Marcus Smart is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The Celtics are shooting 40.1 percent from beyond the arc and 75.6% from the free-throw line. Boston is allowing 36.5% shooting from deep and is grabbing 44.6 rebounds per game.

  • Boston Is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 matches with the Hawks.
  • The Boston Celtics are 8-2 SU in their last 10 meetings with Atlanta.
  • The total went OVER in 7 of Boston’s last 8 games on the road.

Despite facing a daunting 3-1 deficit earlier in the series, the Hawks have clawed their way back and are now just one home win away from forcing a decisive game seven. Their victory in game five, despite being short-handed and playing on the road, was a testament to their resilience and fighting spirit.

With a solid 25-18 home record this season, the Hawks will be looking to feed off the energy of their home crowd and ride the momentum of their recent success. Trae Young has been outstanding throughout the series and his performance will once again be crucial to Atlanta’s chances of winning. The return of Dejounte Murray from suspension also provides a boost to the Hawks’ offense. Atlanta is averaging 115 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 119.8 points on 51.5 percent shooting. PG Trae Young is averaging 29 points and 3.8 rebounds while PG Dejounte Murray is averaging 25.3 points and 7.3 rebounds.

Boston Celtics vs Atlanta Hawks. The NBA pick for this game is the Boston Celtics. The Hawks are carrying the momentum from their game five win and even if they fall short in game six, they have the necessary tools and confidence to keep it close. With the home-court advantage and the return of Murray, the Hawks’ offensive arsenal has expanded beyond just Young. While the Celtics have put up a strong front, their struggles in the frontcourt have allowed the Hawks to take control of the offensive and defensive boards, which should continue to play out in this highly competitive matchup. Furthermore, as reported by, the Hawks have a strong record of 4-0 ATS in their last four Thursday games, which only adds to their case for a potential upset. Although the Celtics have an advantage in depth with Danilo Gallinari out for the Hawks, they can’t afford to be complacent. With Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown leading the way, Boston has the talent and experience to come out on top, but they’ll need to bring their A-game to avoid an upset and keep their playoff hopes alive. Fans won’t want to miss this high-stakes showdown, as the Celtics look to close out the series and the Hawks fight to force a game seven. Prediction: Boston will win 121-113.
