The Celtics lost their final game of the year to Atlanta 92-91 and will begin 2014 with a 13-18 record.

One storyline coming into the game was Hawks guard-forward Kyle Korver's consecutive three-point streak. He came into the game shooting over 50 percent from behind the arc, making a three-pointer in 100 consecutive games. The Celtics played tough defense on Korver and he was 0-5 from three until the fourth quarter.

A view of each shot attempt or reaction as well as one off-beat moment:

Kris Humphries blocked my view, so this is an awkward composition of Korver watching his three go in after he was fouled by Gerald Wallace.

A timeout came to an end as Celtics CSNNE Celtics Sideline Reporter Abby Chin was doing her stand-up. Gerald Wallace called out her name and came on camera for a quirky moment. I saw the funny juxtaposition of their shoes first, then her reaction.
