Celtics return home after road split to face Hawks

BOSTON -- After avoiding what would have been a fourth three-game losing streak on Sunday in Detroit, the Boston Celtics aim for their seventh straight home victory with the Atlanta Hawks in town on Monday night.

The Celtics (38-21) blew a 17-point lead and lost at Toronto in their first game back from the All-Star break on Friday night, then failed to hold a 15-point advantage (because of turnovers) against the Pistons before winning Sunday.

"It was a back-and-forth, tough game," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said after his team's 12th victory in the last 15 games. "They made big plays. It's a hard team for us to play against."
