Atlanta Hawks complete stunning 30-point comeback, stunning Boston Celtics

Posted : 26 March 2024

The Atlanta Hawks engineered a remarkable comeback, erasing a 30-point deficit to stun the Boston Celtics 120-118, halting the Celtics' nine-game winning streak in a thrilling contest on Monday evening. The Celtics seemed poised for victory as they surged to a commanding 68-38 lead in the second quarter, but the resilient Hawks clawed their way back into contention, fueled by a 34-22 third-quarter surge.

The momentum shift continued as the Hawks steadily closed the gap, seizing a narrow 117-116 lead with just a minute remaining, courtesy of a clutch reverse layup by Dejounte Murray. Jaylen Brown's missed three-pointer at the shot clock buzzer gave the Hawks an opening, and De'Andre Hunter capitalized with a crucial basket from beyond the arc to seal the stunning comeback victory.

Hawks coach Quin Snyder credited the home crowd for energizing the team and contributing to their comeback triumph, emphasizing the importance of fan support in boosting morale and fueling momentum on the court. Hunter led the Hawks' scoring efforts with 24 points, supported by Bogdan Bogdanovic with 22 points and Dejounte Murray with 19 points.

Despite his impressive 37-point performance, Jayson Tatum of the Celtics lamented their second-half letdown, acknowledging that they allowed the Hawks to find their rhythm and capitalize on missed opportunities. Tatum emphasized the need for resilience and composure in the face of adversity, urging his team to learn from the defeat and regroup for future challenges.

The loss marked a disappointing turn for the Celtics, who had been riding a nine-game winning streak and were aiming for their tenth consecutive victory. Despite already clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference, the Celtics acknowledged the need to maintain focus and intensity to rebound from the setback and prepare for upcoming matches.

In contrast, the Hawks celebrated their remarkable comeback as a testament to their resilience and determination, demonstrating their ability to overcome adversity and compete at a high level against top-ranked opponents. The victory provided a morale boost for the Hawks as they continue to fight for playoff contention in a competitive Eastern Conference.
