Even the Atlanta Hawks have off nights.

Atlanta led by 18 at one point Wednesday night, but maybe their four key players were looking ahead to the short flight to New York for the All-Star Game. Still, you have to give the Celtics credit for battling back.

To cap it all off, Evan Turner goes behind his back, gets in the lane and hits the floater with 0.2 seconds left and Boston wins.

With that victory, the Celtics are just 1.5 games out of the playoffs. Despite Danny Ainge’s best efforts they are in the mix.
