BOSTON (Ticker) - The Boston Celtics try to snap a season-high eight-game losing streak when they host the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday.

Since superstar Paul Pierce went down with an ankle, the Celtics have lost 13 of their last 15 contests.

On Monday, the Celtics suffered a 93-89 loss to San Antonio. Delonte West scored a season-high 27 points for the Celtics, who trailed 85-69 with under six minutes left in the fourth quarter before making the final score respectable.

Joe Johnson scored 29 points, but the Hawks endured their third straight loss, a 94-86 setback to the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday. Johnson originally was selected by the Celtics with the 10th overall pick in the 2001 draft.

Atlanta has lost 12 of its 16 games.
