The winner of Friday night's matchup between the Atlanta Hawks and the Boston Celtics will likely emerge with homecourt advantage when the playoffs begin next weekend.

Friday night's matchup at Philips Arena between the Atlanta Hawks and the Boston Celtics looks like it will be a playoff preview between the two clubs and the game may even determine who gets homecourt advantage. Atlanta enters the game with a half game lead over the Celtics but can put Boston two games back in the loss column with a win. Boston holds the tiebreaker advantage over the Hawks if the two teams should end up tied.

Boston has won both matchups between the two teams and came from behind in both to claim victories. The Celtics beat the Hawks up on the boards in the last meeting and Atlanta is likely to be without center Zaza Pachulia who has missed the last three games with a foot injury.

Game Date/Time: Friday, April 20, 7:00 p.m. ET

Location: Philips Arena, Atlanta, Georgia

TV: ESPN, SportSouth

Radio: 99X
