[ATLANTA] — The Atlanta Hawks played host to the Boston Celtics last night and the Hawks did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 123-116 victory. The win bumps Atlanta's record up to 40-38 on the season, while the loss drags Boston's down to 50-29. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Hawks. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

On this night it was Marcus Smart leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 18 points, 4 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 blocks and 6 steals in 33 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Unfortunately for Smart, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Hawks. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Boston back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Hawks in the victory was Paul Millsap and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Smart, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Millsap posted 26 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists in the win.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Hawks walking away victorious was Atlanta's ability to limit Boston's offensive output. By holding the C's to less than they usually produce the Hawks made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Hawks will be a date with the Cleveland Cavaliers while the visiting Celtics will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Charlotte Hornets.
