Article Summary:

Boston enters as a winner in three of its past four games, including Monday’s 98-92 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, earning a split of their two-game set.

“Coming off a West Coast trip like we did, only having 24 hours and we play a game – and not only a game, but back-to-back games – this was a tough game,” Atlanta coach Nate McMillan said. “We’ve put two really good games together. We’ll enjoy the day off and see what other adjustments we can make and get ready for.”

The game marks a homecoming for Boston guard Dennis Schroder, who was Atlanta’s first-round draft pick in 2013 and played five seasons with the Hawks through 2018. “If our offense can match our defense, we’ll be in really good shape.”

The Hawks may be without guard Kevin Huerter, who felt tightness in his left hamstring in Monday’s game and did not play in the second half.
