10 a.m. ET: The Celtics hit up the highlight factory on Saturday, but highlights are far from their minds right now. After snapping a four-game losing streak Friday with a win over the Pacers, the Celtics will take a win any way they can get it, highlight-free or otherwise. For the Celtics (15-17), who have not won consecutive games since Dec. 12, this is an opportunity to finally get that win streak they have been chasing. For the Hawks (20-11), it is another chance to keep doing what they have been doing — that is, winning with regularity over the teams below them in the standings. Atlanta is the definition of a team that beats the teams it is supposed to beat. Every one of the Hawks’ losses, save a November defeat against the Cavaliers and Friday’s one-point loss to the Pistons, came against clubs in the playoff hunt. That would seem to make the Celtics fodder for the Hawks, if the Celtics are what their record says. Join us for updates and analysis during the game, which tips off at 7 p.m. ET.
PLAYERS: Rajon Rondo
