Brandon Bass, Jared Sullinger lead Celtics over Atlanta Hawks, 94-87

Despite now being just 5-10 on the season, the C's kept pace for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. There are currently only three teams over .500 in the East, and the Atlanta Hawks are one of them and they just fell 94-87 to the Boston Celtics in Atlanta.

The Celtics trailed by 10 at the start of the fourth quarter, but outscored Atlanta 30-13 in the final frame to pull out the win. The C's were led by Brandon Bass' 17 points, Jared Sullinger's 15 and 9 rebounds, and Jeff Green's 16 points and 5 rebounds.

Boston will rest for a day before heading to Charlotte to get revenge on the Bobcats.
