With their backs against the wall, the Hawks will look to extend their season in Game 5 on Tuesday night.

The Hawks are down to their last chance. Having lost three straight games, Atlanta trails the Boston Celtics 3-1 in their first-round series as they return home for Game 5 on Tuesday night.

Although Josh Smith and Al Horford returned to the lineup in Game 4 and played well individually, the Atlanta offense was in disarray in a 101-79 loss. With more players back in the lineup, Joe Johnson was only able to take eight shots in the game, scoring nine points. He was straightforward after the game, saying that he wants the ball more.

The Hawks will have to figure things out Tuesday night or their season will be over.
