The Atlanta Hawks travel to Boston and are once again facing a must win situation after forcing a Game 6 with an 87-86 win in Game 5 at Philips Arena.
In Game 5 Larry Drew inserted Al Horford and Marvin Williams into the starting lineup and the Hawks got solid performances from both. Horford was playing his second game since having surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle in January and played 41 minutes and finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds.
Even with the Hawks' bounce back performance it took a stop on Boston's final possession to preserve an 87-86 win.
