Atlanta comes in with a 20-11 mark, sitting third in the Eastern Conference and only two games behind the Miami Heat for the Southeast Division lead.
The Hawks have been one of the most surprising yet consistent teams in basketball, making a commitment on both ends of the court.
The combination of Josh Smith and Al Horford has led the way, averaging 33 points per night between the two of them. Horford has also been a bully on the glass, pulling down 9.6 boards on average.
On the other side, Boston's age is really starting to show. The Celtics are only 15-17, barely good enough for the No. 8 seed in the East.
Paul Pierce is leading the team with 19.6 points per game, but he's looked mortal more nights than not. Pierce can no longer create his own shot off the dribble, relying strictly on jump shots.
Rajon Rondo has been the Celtics best player, scoring 13.2 points and dishing 11.4 assists per night. However, Rondo still has no outside game and is miserable at the free throw line.
