Quantcast



The Boston Celtics evened their first round playoffs series 2-2 against Atlanta on Sunday evening at the TD Garden with a 104-95 overtime victory against the Hawks, with many New England Patriots in attendance to support: Bob Kraft, Bill Belichick, Rob Gronkowski and LeGarrette Blount. Blount and Isaiah Thomas shared a nice moment after the game where IT4 gave Blount his jersey (although I am not sure that it will fit him).



Isaiah was Boston's leading scorer with 28 points, including a huge game-sealing 3 pointer in overtime to go up 102-95 with 30 seconds remaining.



Marcus Smart took over in the 4th quarter and scored a career playoff high 20 point to go along with 8 rebounds and 5 assists.



3 other Celtics scored in double figures: Evan Turner (17 points), Jonas Jerbko (16 points, 10 rebounds) and Jae Crowder (12 points). Amir Johnson was one point and one rebound shy of a double-double, with 9 each, and chipped in 3 blocks.
