The Boston Celtics finished off a three-game road trip on Wednesday night. And the road trip will end without a victory.
The C's were thrashed at the hands of the Hawks on Wednesday night. They trailed all night long and fell victim to a hot-shooting Atlanta team. The 127-112 final score doesn't do the end result justice.
Atlanta put on a clinic from beyond the arc, making 23-of-42 (54.8 percent) of its 3-pointers while the Celtics were completely cold from deep and shot 8-of-31 (25.8 percent). Trae Young and Danilo Gallinari led the Hawks in scoring and nearly outscored the entire Celtics team in the first half.
It was a rather forgettable performance for the C's. Jeff Teague (14 points, five rebounds, five assists) had a solid game filling in for Kemba Walker, but the team just couldn't keep pace with the Hawks from deep. Boston's starters made just one 3-point field goal during the game.
FINAL SCORE: Hawks 127, Celtics 112
