Even after all that, this is what blows my mind the most--Boston held Atlanta scoreless for nearly half the quarter, but only managed to go on a 3-0 run in that time. Neither club scored for the last 3:30 of the period:
The Hawks didn't score over the final 5:28 of the first quarter ... and lead by 17 points.
And last but not least, Jae Crowder and Marcus Smart combined to shoot 10 percent (1-for-10) for the game from three-point range. Not good, but that sort of thing happens. Unfortunantely, the duo also shot 10 percent from the field overall (2-for-20).
