The Atlanta Hawks are already down to centers and could be down their starting power forward as Josh Smith will test out his injured knee in shootaround on Friday before deciding whether or not he will be able to play. The Hawks have to hope they can rise to the occasion the same way Boston did in Game 2 when they were without both Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen.
Game 3 and 4 will be played in Boston and Atlanta desperately needs to salvage a victory in one of the games or face coming home with their backs against the wall.
Game Date/Time: Friday, May 4, 7:30 p.m. ET
Location: TD Garden, Boston, Massachusetts
Series: Tied 1-1
