The Boston Celtics took advantage of the Atlanta Hawks beating them could and making the Hawks look like they don’t even belong in the NBA play-offs. In a game when the Celtics could put themselves within one game of advancing into the nest round of the NBA pay-offs the Boston Celtics took full advantage of a Hawks team who clearly were out-played by a experienced Boston Celtics team.
Paul Pierce continued to lead the Celtics with 24 points last night and 4 rebounds he led thew team in scoring and played only 17 minutes. Rajon Rondo continued to play well in the play-offs Rondo added 20 and had 3 rebounds and 16 assists which clearly helped the Celtics to the win last night. Kevin Garnett did what he had to do to help his Celtics take game four, Garnett had 13 points and five rebounds and only one assist, nonetheless it was enough to accomplish the task at hand. The Celtics bench added 28 points in the effort, or should I say the lack of effort from Atlanta. I look for the Celtics to close this series out in game five, if they don’t I will be surprised.
