ATL vs BOS Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Boston Celtics will be looking to extend their seven-game winning streak when they host Atlanta Hawks in an NBA match at TD Garden, in Boston, Massachusetts, on Saturday morning (IST).
Everything seems to be clicking for Boston Celtics these days. They are winning matches in every conceivable manner – seven on the trot after the last match, by big numbers (the 133-77 win against Chicago Bulls will go down in the history as one of the biggest NBA wins of all time), and some close ones and also in the overtime as well.
Not only that, they are doing this without some key players and the Celtics juggernaut is rolling along.
The 130-125 win over Washington Wizards was not canny. It proved that momentum is something which can push teams or an individual athlete beyond limits and often help them dig out results during insurmountable looking circumstances. And that’s what happened in the American capital.
The Greens were without Jaylen Brown, Gordon Hayward and Al Horford in the match. Aron Baynes was on a minute restriction. Washington had the home support, had four players scoring in and more than 20 points, led by John Wall’s team-high 34. The luck went out of the window at the death when Wizards managed to tie the score in some bizarre fashion.
But what injuries?
The most successful franchise in NBA history has overcome many obstacles already this season. And nothing seems to be stopping Celtics as of now. They have missed some key players during the current seven-game winning streak and everything just looks easy on the eye.
The mind is everything and at this moment, Celtics just feel that they can beat any team under any circumstances.
And for Hawks, the flight hasn’t even taken off from the ground. There has been no or little improvement in their performance. In fact, the winning percentage has gone down in comparison to the last campaign when they finished at the foot of the Eastern Conference with just 24 wins out of 82 regular season games.
Mavericks beat them 114-107 in the last game and extended their own home streal to an impressive 11 games. While Atlanta slipped to the first ever loss against Dallas in the last 11 games, losing for the 12th time on the road, and third in a row.
Trae Young added 24 points and 10 assists, while Kent Bazemore scored 22 points in the match.
Regular Season Record-
Boston Celtics: W-17, L-10
Atlanta Hawks: W-6, L-21
Players to watch out for:
Kyrie Irving – Dropped an insane 38 points in the last match as an injury-plagued Celtics maintained their winning streak. The former Cleveland Cavaliers star is averaging 22.5 points per game, also dropping 4.6 rebounds and 6.4 rebounds per game. He is too big a star and with Hawks struggling for a win, the member of 2016 NBA winning team could just be the man to lead your NBA fantasy team.
Jayson Tatum – One player who is destined to be the real superstar is Jayson Tatum. Still just 20, the 2017 1st round pick is producing numbers of a seasoned player. This season, he is averaging 16.6 points per game.
John Collins – Another young jewel in Hawks’ roster, Collins started the pre-season with 18 points but missed the first 15 games of the season with an injury. Hawks have missed him and his contribution of 18.3 points per game shows he has a bright future.
Trae Young – He has a big future, so much so that many NBA pundits are hailing him as the next Stephen Curry. Well, in hindsight this may be only a prediction but he has the potential to be a real superstar in the future. Still, only 20, Atlanta star is 2nd in points chart, scoring 15.7 points per game.
