Celtics vs. Hawks Predictions | 2023 NBA Playoffs First Round Game 6

On Thursday, the No. 2-seeded Boston Celtics take on the No.7-seeded Atlanta Hawks inside State Farm Arena at 8:30 p.m. ET. Boston has a 3-2 series lead over Atlanta in this first-round matchup. However, the Celtics are coming off a disappointing 119-117 Game 5 loss at home.

Hawks guard Trae Young finished with 38 points and drained a go-ahead 3-pointer from outside the top of the key with 2.8 seconds left to help Atlanta complete a late comeback. The Hawks are now 19-15 in games decided by 10 or more points.

“I just had to trust in what I’ve done my whole life and shoot it with confidence,” Young said after the win. The two-time All-Star has recorded 60 fourth-quarter points in this series.

Do the Hawks now have a leg up on Boston in this series? Celtics guard Jaylen Brown led his team in scoring with 35 points in Game 5. Jayson Tatum ended his night with 19 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, and one block in 38 minutes of action.

Per ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, the Celtics have a 75% chance of winning tonight. The Celtics should win Game 6 and cover the spread. However, Atlanta has made this series interesting. The Hawks could very well force a Game 7.
