The Atlanta Hawks look to bounce back from Friday's defeat in Detroit when they take on the Boston Celtics for the first time this season at Philips Arena.

The Atlanta Hawks slept through the first three-quarters of Friday's loss to the Detroit Pistons but almost stole the game with a furious fourth quarter comeback. The Hawks will have to put the loss behind them quickly as they are right back at it on Saturday when they take the floor against the Boston Celtics for the first time since last season's playoff matchup.

The Celtics dispatched the Hawks 4-2 in the first round last season but the two teams have had very different starts to this season. Atlanta is currently 20-11 and in third place in the Eastern Conference while Boston comes in at 15-17 which is good for eighth place. The Celtics got Avery Bradley back this week and are looking to establish some momentum with all of their key pieces back in the lineup.

Atlanta played on Friday without Devin Harris, Anthony Morrow, DeShawn Stevenson and Johan Petro. Stevenson sat out the first game of the back-to-back and is expected to play tonight. Harris and Morrow have been fighting foot and hip injuries and there status for tonight will likely be determined closer to tipoff. Petro didn't travel to Detroit because of a stomach illness and is considered day-to-day.
