Aron Baynes knew the Boston Celtics had a perfect opponent to improve their flow on offense. “You know we have had a pretty dry spell,” Baynes said. “We have gotten good looks, but (shots) haven’t been dropping, so to see it go through the hoop a few times tonight to begin the game was a good thing.” Baynes scored a season-high 16 points, Jayson Tatum added 14 and the Celtics snapped a three-game skid with a 114-96 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night.
Jayson Tatum and Donovan Mitchell have a lot in common. They were lottery picks in the 2017 draft — Tatum third to the Celtics, Mitchell 13th to the Jazz — and they’ve been friends since taking part in high-level camps for high schoolers years before. And though it wasn’t what either of their teams wanted, both had their development as rookies aided by the absence of Gordon Hayward. … Mitchell averaged 20.5 points and should have been Rookie of the Year (Ben Simmons didn’t play in 2016-17, but he had a valuable year with the 76ers to get acclimated). Tatum averaged 16.3 points and started all year for a team that went to the conference finals.
