Kyrie Irving on return to mask: "Didn't see me take it off as much, so that's a positive. I could see just a little bit more of the crowd tonight; the eye holes were a little bit bigger. The basket looked a little bit better."

For the fifth time this season -- and third time in the last five games -- the Boston Celtics have dug themselves a 16-point hole. They've rallied back to win three of the previous four games and are within six at the intermission in Atlanta. Halftime: Hawks 50, Celtics 44.

Asked if he was able to glean anything from the way the Celtics beat Golden State on Thursday, Sixers coach Brett Brown said, "I'm always paying attention to the Celtics. There's toughness there." It's Boston's physicality that Brown believes is worth emulating against the Warriors' potent offense.

Stevens: Celtics not as good as streak suggests

Coach Brad Stevens isn't getting caught up in the hype of his team's 14-game win streak, saying the Celtics have "got to be better, and we know that."

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Kyrie Irving ditched his protective mask in the third quarter of Thursday's win over the Golden State Warriors but expects to be back in it on Saturday in Atlanta. Why? "Just in the best interests of myself," said Irving, who has a facial fracture below his right eye.

Jaylen Brown took the first flight to Atlanta Friday morning to spend time with friends and family of Trevin Steede. Brad Stevens: "He said it was good to spend time with family and friends."
