Recap: Atlanta vs. Boston

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Brandon Bass scored a team-high 17 points and Jordan Crawford scored 10 of his 12 points in the fourth quarter as the Boston Celtics snapped a six-game losing streak with a 94-87 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday.

Atlanta led by as many as 12 points in the fourth and a Mike Scott 3-pointer gave the Hawks an 81-70 lead with 9:30 left to play. Boston countered with a 10-0 run to pull within one and took its first lead since midway through the third after a pair of Bass free throws with 3:31 remaining.

Each team then traded a pair of foul shots and Crawford hit back-to-back shots, including a free throw, to give the Celtics a 91-85 lead with 46.3 seconds left and seal it for the visitors.

"We rallied, made big plays," said Boston head coach Brad Stevens. "Our guys did a pretty good job of making big plays for themselves."

Crawford added 10 assists in the triumph for his second double-double of the season. Jeff Green and Jared Sullinger netted 16 and 15 points, respectively.

Al Horford dropped 18 points with seven rebounds in the losing effort, while Jeff Teague recorded a double-double, scoring 13 points with 10 assists.

Boston outscored Atlanta 30-13 in the fourth quarter, limiting the Hawks to 21.7 percent from the field (5-of-23). Atlanta managed just two field goals in the frame since the Scott trey.

"You have to give them some credit for their defense. I thought we missed a lot of shots we had been making," Korver said.

In the third quarter, it was Boston which was cold throughout, shooting just 4-of-15 from the field with six turnovers.

Kyle Korver made a running jumper with 6:33 left in the third which ignited an 11-1 run to give the Hawks a 68-60 lead.

The run came at a time when Boston hadn't made a bucket in a 4:28 stretch. Gerald Wallace ended the drought with a layup to cut the deficit to six, but Atlanta scored four straight and led 74-64 after three.

Atlanta didn't take its first lead until early in the second quarter after a Shelvin Mack 3-pointer. The teams were tied five times in the stanza and the Hawks led 53-49 at the break.

Korver made his first 3-point attempt with 10:13 left in the first to extend his streak of consecutive games with a triple to 87 games, two behind Dana Barros for the most in NBA history.

Boston led for the entire first quarter and carried a slim one-point lead, 25-24, into the second frame.
