Atlanta has to feel like it let Game 4 get away from it. The Hawks had a 16-point lead midway through the third quarter, only to see it slip away in an OT loss. The Hawks seem to have the better talent on paper, but Boston is finding ways to stay with them. With the series moving back to Atlanta tonight, look for the Hawks to send a message and come out with a big victory. Boston is just 3-10 ATS in their last 13 road games, so expect the Celtics to look a little sloppy with the pressure on tonight.
