The Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics begin their first round playoff series on Sunday at Philips Arena.

The Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics will meet once again in the NBA Playoffs on Sunday for Game 1 at Philips Arena. Boston took two of the three regular season meetings between the two clubs but it is the Hawks that have the home court advantage in the series.

They will look to hang on to that advantage today although they may be down to players at the center position. Al Horford has been out since the 11th game of the season with a torn pectoral muscle and isn't expected to play in the series. Zaza Pachulia missed the last seven games of the regular season with a foot injury and is listed as a game-time decision for Sunday's Game 1 but is unlikely to play.

Boston has injury concerns of their own with Ray Allen still nursing an ankle injury. He traveled with the Celtics to Boston but is unlikely to play in Game 1.

Game Date/Time: Sunday, April 29, 7 p.m. ET

Location: Philips Arena, Atlanta, Georgia

TV: TNT, SportSouth

Radio: 99X
