Celtics-Hawks: One Down

(5:30 in the 1st) Yuck – a cheapy foul called on Rondo as the evil Mike Bibby drained a three in the corner. The crowd reacted in anger as Bibby completed the rare four-point play. You may recall, fans hate Bibby after he remarked during the playoffs that most of the fans jumped on the bandwagon after the Celtics’ resurgence. Since then, he’s been serenaded with “Rondo’s Better” chants.

(1:03 in the 1st) The Celtics have been overcoming slow starts offensively by playing suffocating defense… a good example just now, forcing Atlanta into a shot clock violation, then coming back down the floor for an Eddie House 3 to pull within two. Remember kids, defense wins championships, at least in basketball, football, and hockey.

(end of 1st) Flip Murray just buried a three at the buzzer to give the Hawks a 31-25 lead after the first. Murray hit all three of his shots, all threes, for 9 points in only 4 minutes of play.

Quick recap:
10-6 points in paint for Hawks
4-2 second chance points for Hawks
4-0 fast break points for Hawks
