The Boston Celtics will try to take a commanding 3-1 series lead Sunday, as they host the Atlanta Hawks in Game 4 of a best-of-seven Eastern Conference playoff series. The Celtics have earned two straight victories after losing at Atlanta is Game 1, and can take full control of this first-round match-up with a victory in Game 4 at the TD Garden (7 p.m. ET on TNT).

However, the Hawks are looking to even the series that would head back to Atlanta for Game 5. This goal could be a bit easier to accomplish as Hawks' forward Josh Smith is expected to play after missing Game 3 with a left-knee injury. In his absence, former All-Star Tracy McGrady tallied 10 points and six rebounds, however, was limited after hurting his foot late in Friday's contest.

Meanwhile, the Celtics should be healthy heading into the contest., even though, veteran guard Ray Allen, who missed the first two games of the series, probably isn't playing at 100-percent.

To catch the game, here's the viewing information:

Location: TD Garden, Boston, Ma.

Game Time: 7 p.m. ET

TV Channel: TNT

Series: Celtics lead best-of-seven series 2-1.
