6:40: The Celtics, now a tough 20-22, will visit the Hawks tonight at the Phillips Arena. The Hawks are a solid 24-18. The Celtics are coming off yesterday's home loss to New York. Despite playing pretty well, they still lost 89-86. All I can say about that game is that if could've been a lot worse. Keep checking back here after each quarter for updates.
8:17: What just happened? The Celtics, who we(the media) have done nothing but rip on recently, have a 29-10 lead after the first quarter. The Hawks struggle with tough competition, but I expected more. This feels really good to write. Keep watching the game and enjoy it while it lasts.
9:03: The Celtics didn't dominate the second quarter, but still played well. They tied with Atlanta 28-28. They now lead at the half, 57-38. Good luck in the second half Celtics. Please win this one.
9:56: The Celtics played terrible in the second half. They are now heading into overtime tied at 98.
10:09: The first overtime has ended. The Celtics and Hawks are tied at 107.
10:25: The Celtics decided not to play the second overtime. They were outscored 16-4 in those five minutes as they lose tonight 123-111. This was pathetic. I seriously believe that this team is not trying to win and I am tired of having to say the same things over and over again.
Celtics need victories and better bench play to take the pressure off Pierce, Garnett, and Rondo.
