Found May 05, 2012 on Celtics Life:
 The Celtics should have won that game in a blow out in regulation but they played just bad enough to let the Hawks hang around the entire game.  I don't understand all the hate for Joe Johnson from Hawks fans.  He kept them in it and was the reason it wasn't a blow out.  I don't think the last comment is quite true.  It isn't that the Celtics aren't that good.  It's that they aren't playing that good.  They are shooting terribly and missing wide open shots.  Maybe it's fatigue.  But I have to feel that they are going to put it together in one of these games and show that they are that good.   Enjoy today's comments.  The Hawks without Josh Smith and Al Horford/Zaza will be worse than the Dwightless Magic. The Celtics will not have ANY difficulty in dispatching this team tonight This team can't even spell championship, and Smoove has probably played his last game in a Hawks uniform. JJ is not a leader. He has no emotions, and he takes NOOOO...

Ray Allen Showing No Signs Of Rust With Strong First Half Against Hawks

Recap: Celtics crush the Hawks spirit

Now that was fun. The Celtics demolished the Hawks for 48 minutes tonight and took a commanding 3-1 lead in the series. I don't know where to begin. The Celtics dominated from the start.

Recap: Wretched Celtics edge horrible Hawks in OT

But nothing, I repeat, nothing compared to this game. We were treated to spectacularly bad turnovers and horrific defensive lapses, the likes of which haven't been seen since the mid 2000s. Rajon Rondo (17 points, 14 rebounds...

Celtics 90, Hawks 84: All wins counts the same, thankfully

I’m still not sure exactly how an 11-point lead dissolved into a tie game in less than three milliseconds, but only a cruel god would have subjected us to five extra minutes of that sludge. Thankfully, the Celtics prevailed in overtime against an Atlanta Hawks team that brought a lot of effort if not a lot of talented players healthy enough to compete.For all the interesting...

Ticket Prices in Series Between Celtics, Hawks Nearly Double for Games in Boston

Veteran Celtics have found a winning formula

BOSTON Celtics forward Kevin Garnett likes to think building a championship basketball team is kind of like baking a cake. First you take your ingredients your well-known standbys, as well as a few bold new flavors and you mix them together. What you initially get doesn't look like much, and it isn't something that's ready to serve, but if you sneak a taste and you...
