The Atlanta Hawks suffered a brutal loss on Tuesday evening, yielding to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the final seconds. While that result looms, the Hawks have little time to press the reset button, as the team returns home to Atlanta to host the Boston Celtics on Wednesday evening. This is the third meeting in eight days between the Hawks and the Celtics, with the two teams splitting a pair of matchups in Boston.
