Herald Garden party for Celtics Sam Cassell’s time to shine Paul Pierce’s big night speaks volumes FL's Take: Pierce is going to have to keep this same aggressive mindset for the Celtics to win game 6 in Atlanta. He can't play timidly and will have to be aggressive just as he was in game 5. Big Papi’s a big fan of Hawks’ Horford Celtics make it look simple Joe Johnson: ‘It ain’t over yet' FL's Take: The Celtics have given the Hawks confidence by playing so poorly in games 3 and 4 and letting them back in the series. They will need to play very well to take game 6 as the Hawks are going to come at them with a lot of confidence that they can win in their own house. ’Nique thankful for help Leon Powe plays a big role FL's Take: I love Leon Powe. He is a huge factor for this team as long as Doc gives him a chance. Wizards get back at Cavs FL's Take: This was good that the Wizards beat the Cavs because now they have a game 6 also and the Cavs won't be sitting at home waiting and getting a lot of rest while the Celtics finish their series. The best case scenario would be for the Celtics to close out their series on Friday and for the Cavs to win on Friday and have their series to go 7 games and give the Celtics a rest before having to face them. Paul Pierce issues statement on gesture Pierce: Gesture wasn’t gang sign Menino let his fingers do the mumbling Globe Safe at home How did we get here? Bench once again provides a deep threat FL's Take: The bench is going to be a key to winning on Friday. They have to come through again as they have in the Celtics 3 wins. Pierce tries his hand at issuing a statement Hawks' old habits return No hitting rookie wall for Horford In this job, there's no such thing as security FL's Take: I think some coaches fit certain teams and some don't. Why else would a coach get fired for not winning and then go to another team and win. There are some bad coaches, but most of the time it is a combination of things. Expect some of the fired coaches (except Isiah) to show up on another team and be successful. This just means more teams after Tom Thibodeau, though.

A coach can hide his weaknesses in the regular season, but once the playoffs come around it becomes a chess match between coaches and weaknesses aren't as easy to hide. Celtics insist they haven't given up on Cassell Celtics soar at home and ground Hawks Familiar surroundings put bounce back in Celtics' step Hawks seem to only fly down South SI.com A few losses to the Hawks could be just what the Celtics needed FL's Take: I think the Celtics took the Hawks for granted going down to Atlanta. They were taken by surprise in the first game and then they played a better game in game 4, but didn't bring the killer instinct and let up once they got the lead. Hopefully they have learned not to take any teams or games for granted and every game has to be played like game 7.
