Celtics host Hawks, seek eighth straight victory

BOSTON -- Celtics coach Brad Stevens has to count heads in his locker room before every game to see who is available for that game.

But regardless of who is in and who is out, Boston has won seven straight games heading into Friday night's home game against the Atlanta Hawks.

"The hallmark of this group has been whoever's available plays and is counted on to do what they're supposed to," Stevens said after Wednesday night's 130-125 overtime victory at Washington. "Not everybody had their best night, but everybody did their jobs and kept adding value when they checked in. They played whatever role they were asked to and gave us a chance to win."
