The encounter is the first of a two-game mini-series as the two sides will be going head-to-head again later this week.
While the Celtics returned to winning ways by beating the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday, the Hawks lost their fourth straight game with a defeat to the New York Knicks on Monday.
Either way, both teams have been disappointing in their last ten games. The Boston Celtics have lost six of those games while the Atlanta Hawks have lost eight.
The Celtics are in a much better position in the points table as they currently occupy 4th place. Meanwhile, the Hawks are placed eleventh in the standings.
Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum have been exceptional for the Boston Celtics, averaging 26.0 and 25.4 points per game respectively, and will be expected to deliver again on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Trae Young will have to shoulder the responsibility of reviving the Atlanta Hawks' aspirations to qualify for the playoffs.
