Celtics crush wingless Hawks, close season series 3-1
The Hawks barely scored 70 points in an atrocious display of shooting and unacceptable team play. Their opponent, the Boston Celtics, shot obviously better, accumulating more assists and outdoing the home team in the rebound category. Flat, or wingless, would be the perfect definition of ATL's effort, or lack thereof, tonight, and it was obvious by the end of the 1st quarter as they already trailed by 16.
Meanwhile, Jason Terry exploded for 38 points, nailing three-pointer after three-pointer, and the rest of Boston stretched the floor, giving Terry more freedom to run off screens and switch between corners on the wing. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce both contributed sweetly to Boston's crushing victory that bodes well as they host the #1 team in the Western Conference, the LA Lakers.
