Boston, MA (SportsNetwork. Jim Brown Jersey .com) - Despite missing Al Horford and Kyle Korver, the Atlanta Hawks had no problem dispatching the Boston Celtics, 105-91, on Wednesday. Playing back-to-back games against Philadelphia and Boston, the Hawks decided to give their five starters some rest with Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll sitting out Tuesdays win over the 76ers. Were playing as a group, Millsap said. Were not playing as a bunch of individuals. All three came back with impressive efforts. Carroll and Teague led all scorers with 22 points apiece, and Millsap added 18 points with 10 rebounds in Atlantas 10th straight win. Nobody in the league can keep Teague in front of them. Nobody, said Celtics coach Brad Stevens. Avery Bradley led the Celtics with 17 points on 6-of-13 shooting. Boston also got 14 points and nine boards from Jared Sullinger as the Celtics fell for the third time in four games. The game was tied after one quarter, but Atlanta shot 63.2 percent in the second and pulled away. The Hawks used a 12-0 run to break a tie and held a lead for the rest of the game. Mike Scott scored the first five points of the spurt and it was capped by Millsaps three-point play. The Hawks closed the half with a 57-45 lead. Teagues 3-pointer with 14 seconds to go extended their lead to 10, and Millsap stole the ball and hit a layup as time expired. Atlanta shot 64.3 percent in the third period and extended its lead to 89-74 after three. Phil Pressey and Evan Turner each scored three points in a 6-0 Celtics run to start the fourth. That trimmed Bostons deficit to single digit for the first time since early in the third quarter, but the Celtics could not get closer. Despite their abysmal 26.3 percent shooting in the final period, the Hawks were able to hold off Boston. Game Notes Atlanta has won 14 of its last 15 and 23 of its last 25 ... The Hawks 10-game road winning streak is the best in team history ... Atlanta is now 22-1 when allowing fewer than 100 points ... The Hawks are now 8-3 in the second game of back-to-back sets ...

Mike Breys Irish picked up their 20th win of the season in impressive fashion, as they battled back from a double-digit deficit against fourth- ranked Duke on Wednesday to earn a 77-73 victory over the Blue Devils. The win was the fifth straight for the Irish and pushed the team to 20-2 on the season, with an 8-1 league ledger, good for second place behind No. 2 Virginia. Jamie Dixons Panthers are at the opposite end of the spectrum right now, trying to halt a three-game losing streak. Most recently, Pittsburgh fell in overtime at Virginia Tech on Tuesday, 70-67. With the loss, Pitt is now just 13-8 overall, with an ugly 3-5 record in the ACC thus far. This marks the 60th all-time meeting between these two programs. The Irish hold a 31-28 series advantage. However, the Panther earned an 85-81 overtime victory last year to bring an end to a five-game win streak for Notre Dame in the series. There arent many teams in the nation that could win a shootout with Duke, but Notre Dame proved to be one of them. Standout guard Jerian Grant played a huge role in the win with some timely shots down the stretch to propel the Irish to victory. Grant finished the game with a 23 points, 12 assists and six rebounds. Zach Auguste added 14 points to the cause, Pat Connaughton recorded a double-double of his own with 13 points and 12 rebounds, while Demetrius Jackson contributed 10 points for Notre Dame, which shot a sterling .518 from the floor against the Blue Devils. TThere are very few teams more efficient than the Irish this season. Kevin Hogan Jersey. . Notre Dame is shooting .521 from the floor (second nationally), while averaging 81.6 ppg (ninth nationally). Scoring depth is apparent with four of the five starters averaging double figures. Grant is headed toward All-America honors and is a serious National Player of the Year candidate, averaging 17.4 ppg, while doling out 6.5 apg. Connaughton plays much bigger than he is (6-5), as he adds 13.8 ppg and 8.5 rpg. Auguste (13.7 ppg) and Jackson (13.3 ppg) provide even more offensive options. Mediocre numbers produce mediocre results and that is where Pittsburgh lives right now. The Panthers are in the bottom half of the league in terms of scoring at 67.3 ppg, while allowing 64.0 ppg. There arent any prolific scoring options on the roster, as Michael Young paces the team with 13.2 ppg, despite shooting over 50 percent from the field (.507). Young also tops the team in rebounding with just under eight caroms per contest (7.8). Jamel Artis (11.1 ppg, 5.3 rpg) has elevated his game and is second on the team in both scoring and rebounding. James Robinson (10.1 ppg) rounds out the teams top scorers. The Panthers allowed the Hokies to tie things up late and force overtime and then a Adam Smith 3-pointer with just three seconds left in the overtime session finally did in the visitors and kept Pittsburgh on a downward spiral. Artis had a strong outing in defeat, as he just missed a double-double with 17 points and nine rebounds. Cameron Wright and Robinson checked in with 14 and 12 points, respectively. Young struggled offensively, finishing with just six points, but he did grab a team-high 10 rebounds.
