Tough two games for the Hawks. Celtics should be up 3-1 before they go back to Atlanta.

honestly im getting sick of them even when they are not on my team. I don't want to watch Celts v. Hawks without JSmoove/Allen.... just not as exciting (but very good for celts fans)

Not to mention Zaza...our frontcourt is really hurting without those 3. Jason Collins, Ivan Johnson and Eric Damier. Wow just awful

No frontcourt for us what so ever. I expect to see Marvin playing PF alot. We only have Ivan, Collins, and Dampier.

Joe and Teague needs to have monster games for us to have a chance.

Yo..Did the NBA lose superstar Derrick Rose only to see T-Mac reincarnated?..These maybe the last remarkable moments of Tracy's career. (27, 6, 5, playoff average) He is killing it

Its just a habit of Tmac, he tends to raise his game relative to the regular season. I called him having agame like this, hes done athletically and hes not able to bring it consistently in the regular season, but having a wild card like him is useful to any teams bench, especially at the min.

No doubt. Still has the iq, competitive fire, and length to play well when rested. they need to put him back in!

That's the thing, they always play to the level of their competition.

It sucks in games like this when they should win by 10+, but it's awesome in games against the Heat, Bulls, Thunder, etc.
