What to watch for : The Hawks are seeking their first victory in three meetings against the Celtics, who won twice at Philips Arena in November.
Charlotte guard Kemba Walker went off for 38 points on 20 shots during his team’s 123-110 victory at Philips Arena on Wednesday.
Hawks point guard Dennis Schroder, the team’s leading scorer, finished the Hornets game after suffering a right shoulder injury, but is questionable to play at Boston.
But Schroder’s absence could give the Hawks a better chance on defense against the Celtics, who rank 17 th in offensive efficiency.
