BOSTON -- The Celtics had yet to discuss their specific offensive game plans for their game against Atlanta on Tuesday morning, but Jeff Green knew early on that they'd try to attack.

With Hawks forward Al Horford out due to a pectoral injury, the C's have a size advantage on their New Year's Eve opponents.

"With our size, they're going to send double teams to make sure we're not playing one on one in the post," Green said. "They're going to come double whenever myself or Gerald [Wallace], whenever we post up. We just gotta be ready as a team and just try to attack them as they rotate.

"We have to attack their rotations because when they double, who are they coming off? If they're scrambling and we can attack and put them on their heels, we'll be good."
