The Celtics and Hawks each look to take control of their first round series Friday night when they face off in Game 3.
The series is knotted at one game apiece, and has now moved back to Boston. The Celtics stole home court advantage from the Hawks in Game 2. Boston won in Atlanta, despite not having Rajon Rondo because of a suspension.
The two teams face off at the TD Garden at 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on ESPN. If you can't get to a television, you can watch the live stream online here.
Boston will be getting Rondo back for the contest, but Atlanta may be without one of their best players. Josh Smith is uncertain with a sprained knee.
Smith has been key to Atlanta's success this year. He raised his game when teammate Al Horford went down with an injury, averaging 18.8 points and 9.6 rebounds per game. Both of those numbers are career highs.
Shooting guard Ray missed both of the first two games for the Celtics. He is suffering from bones spurs in his right ankle, but there's a chance he'll play Friday night. He's a game-time decision after participating in the team's shootaroud.
The Celtics won the regular season series with the Hawks 2-1. The winner of this series will play the winner of the Bulls-76ers series.
PREDICTION: Celtics 93, Hawks 84
