Derrick White scored 12 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter to help the Boston Celtics defeat the Atlanta Hawks 125-117 at TD Garden on Wednesday night.

All the shots White knocked down in the fourth were from beyond the arc, where he finished 5-of-10 on the night.

“Honestly, great looks,” White told Abby Chin, as seen on NBC Sports Boston’s postgame coverage. “Obviously, a lot of attention to everybody else, and I got wide-open looks. I gotta knock them down.”

The Celtics starting unit of White, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Kristaps Porzingis and Al Horford combined for 101 points and 29 assists in the win.

“It’s a lot of fun. We got so many weapons,” White said. “Obviously, Jrue (Holiday) was out tonight, but Al stepped up. He made so many winning plays for us, and it’s a lot of fun playing that way.”
