Boston have lost two of their last three games, but they continue to lead this NBA Playoff series 3-2.

The Celtics came into the postseason in good form having won their final three regular season games, including a 120-114 victory over Atlanta.

They kept that run going in their first couple of playoff games too as they beat the Hawks 112-99 and 119-106 at home to take a 2-0 series lead.

Boston dropped the third meeting 130-122, but gave themselves the chance to clinch at home when they won 129-121 in Atlanta in Game 4.

However, the Celtics failed to wrap it up on Tuesday night, giving up a buzzer-beating three pointer as they lost 119-117.

Atlanta Hawks Form

Atlanta have kept their playoff campaign alive with two wins in their last three games to trail 3-2 heading into this meeting.

The Hawks wrapped up their regular season with a defeat in Boston, but rebounded to down Miami 116-105 in the Play-In Tournament.

They failed to follow that up over the first two games of this series, as they were beaten 112-99 and 119-106 in Boston.

Atlanta finally got off the mark when they beat the Celtics 130-122 at home, but were unable to even up the series in Game 4 as they were beaten 129-121.

The Hawks did keep the playoff series alive in Game 5 though, as Trae Young dragged them to a 119-117 victory on the road.
