Hawks down Celtics on home soil

The Atlanta Hawks produced a superb display to outclass the Boston Celtics in Georgia on Saturday.

Dennis Schroder’s team-mates were made to battle hard throughout the contest and overcame a 12 point deficit to beat their rivals 118-107.

Marcus Smart led the visitors with 19 points and Jae Crowder added 16 but it wasn’t enough as former Jazz forward Paul Millsap stole the show, scoring a season-high 31 points while taking 16 rebounds.

Jeff Teague and Schroder combined for 39 points to secure the win. This result sees Atlanta move one game ahead of Boston to sit alone in third place in the Eastern Conference.
