Current Records/Streak & Hot, Lukewarm, or Cold

Records: Atlanta Hawks (20-11) … Boston Celtics (15-17)

Streak: Atlanta Hawks –> OVERALL: Lost 1 / HOME: Won 3 / ROAD: Lost 1 … Boston Celtics –> OVERALL: Won 1 / HOME: Won 1 / ROAD: Lost 3

Home/Away Records: Hawks are (11-5) at home … Celtics are (5-11) on the road.

Atlanta Hawks: Cold. Although they have won three straight at home, Atlanta hasn’t played in Philips since Dec. 29 and just lost two-of-three on the road. The Hawks got blown out on New Years Eve in Houston and lost a heart breaker in Detroit last night. Not exactly the ideal way to start the new year.

Boston Celtics: Cold. The Celtics lost four straight before snapping the skid with a win at home against the Indiana Pacers on Friday.
