    Hawks were up big until Josh Smith got hurt.

    Good Lord that was pathetic. And what was up with Rondo turning into Lebron James at the end?

    "Duurrr, there's 8 seconds on the clock, let me sit back here and dribble until... doh! Time's out!"

    Yeah, not like your Big 3 need any rest or anything...

    I don't see ATL winning three in a row. It's possible if they can win the next one in Boston... but I just don't see it.

    I concluded on Friday that a team CANNOT win in the playoffs without a star. I think there was a point in game 3 where the Hawks had 40 points in the paint and 6 free throw attempts. The Celtics had like 8 points in the paint and Paul Pierce himself had 14 free throws made.

    The Celtics will send out a guy to shove the ballhandler at the top of the key, then Bradley or Rondo would flash in and try to steal the ball while Joe Johnson was off balance from getting shoved by Garnett. Garnett had 2 fists of Horford's jersey both times the Hawks couldn't inbound the ball last night.

    They play an insanely physical game, but they Pierce gets automatic free throws on any contact or anticipated contact.

    The Hawks continue to be a collection of talent instead of a team.

    I'm just surprised this thing wasn't over in 5 games as I predicted.

    I won't sleep on Indiana, but I expect the Celtics to win this series in 6 games as well. A pretty easy first two rounds for Boston if you ask me. I pray they can beat the Heat in the conference finals.

    Depends on if Wade dislocates Rondo's arm again I suppose.

    Boston should win in 4.

    We almost took them to 7 missing 2.5 starters.

    That game hurt right there. We did make a small comeback for a second, and I thought we had the game won. Boston wouldn't have won game 7 in Atlanta.

    Josh Smith and his stupid long range jumpers continue to hurt this team.

    I still think we were the better team. We had our chances and gave them the series. We should have won game 2 and 3 IMO.

    Man, I was looking forward to getting drunk Saturday and watching game 7 in Atlanta :(
