The hot-and-cold Atlanta Hawks are soaring yet again, bringing a seven-game winning streak into Friday’s home contest against the Boston Celtics. A 117-97 victory Tuesday at Brooklyn surpassed an earlier six-game win streak for longest of the season for a Hawks team that is 12-6 since a seven-game slide.

The biggest storyline will be the return of Al Horford, who signed with Boston in the offseason after playing his first nine seasons with the Hawks. “It’s a new experience for me,” Horford told reporters after Boston’s 117-108 victory over Washington, “but I have a job to do here with our team.” The Celtics also are hot, winning 11 of their past 14 games to hold onto third place in the Eastern Conference. Atlanta’s recent streak has pushed the Hawks into fourth in the East, 1 1/2 games behind Boston.

Last time out for Atlanta, they were a 117-97 winner as they battled the Nets on the road. The Hawks covered in the match as a -8.5-point favorite, while 214 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Boston was a 117-108 winner in its last match at home against the Wizards. They covered the -5.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 225 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
