Don't play like dogshit on the back end of a back-to-back.

Bulls just dropped 31 in the 1st vs. DET. So, not making up any ground tonight. :(

2 things continuing from last night

1) aggressive Rondo
2) refs giving him zero in the way of foul calls

Once again Celts play an energized first quarter. Will they go to sleep in the second quarter again?

Are there this many transplanted New Englanders in Atlanta?

Or are these mostly pathetic bandwagon jumping locals?

The Hawks are doing a lot of body-checking, and the refs are allowing it. It's helping the Hawks, who are rested and playing hard.

Now the Celtics are starting to play pissed off, starting with Pierce.

Every time Green comes in, the interior defense falls apart.

Jermaine travel. Jermaine foul. (Followed by the lamest PA foul announcement in the league "That foul was OFFENSIVE, Jermaine O'Neal").

Hasn't lost a step from his strong game last night.

Hopefully Ray can get his shit together before the playoffs. I'll be interested to see how he plays tonight.

Honestly they should sit Ray for the next week. And, looking ahead, he should be a sixth man next year.

Theres no doubt Krstic and Green have been defensive weak links out there.

I have little hope for the slow footed Nenad, but hopefully with some coaching from Doc/Frank/KG, Green can improve

I think you probably gave him an extra 10 feet on that one, but I agree he surprisingly had a good stroke on that 3

He's an old guy whose game depends on his legs. He needs some rest down the stretch.

Not really, to my eyes. Green plays softer and smoother than Lewis, who had a herky-jerky motion on his pop-up jumper that was second-best only to Jordan's. Green doesn't really turn on a dime -- he sprints past, extends and out-reaches his defender.

I know it can't possibly be true, but I heard a strange rumor that the Hawks owe Joe Johnson 105 million dollars for the 2011/2012-2015/2016 seasons.

Ray Allen makes standard one handed dunks exciting. Maybe because you can't believe it's Ray Allen doing it.

Not much of a basketball fan, so sorry to butt in. I have a question: why do players slap a freethrow shooter's hands after he misses a shot? What's there to celebrate?

It's more or less a solidarity gesture.

OK, gotcha. Thanks. (I can't think of a comp situation in any of the other three major sports.)

Nearly all of Rondos layups attempts tonight, makes and misses, have circled the rim at least once.
