The Boston Celtics have broken out of their most recent, painful losing streak with a solid home win against the Denver Nuggets, but now face the Atlanta Hawks at TD Garden less than 24 hours later. Can they keep this new momentum going?

If they can, they will presumably be doing it without star point guard Kemba Walker so he can continue to sit on the second night of back-to-backs, and they’ll be doing it against healthier but still dinged-up team than the Nuggets were the night before. But if this team continues to put in the effort it managed from top to bottom Tuesday, it’s certainly on the table.
