Tip: 8:00 PM Court: Philips Arena Watch it: CSN, TNT Hear it: WEEI
Referees: Dan Crawford, David Jones and Tom Washington
The Celtics lead the series 3-1. Only 8 teams in league history have won a series after trailing 3-1.
Get it to: Rajon Rondo
Let the Maestro do his thing. He's got the Hawks heads spinning on just about every possession.
Gotta stop: Jeff Teague
Teague was very effective in Games 1-3 (18 ppg), but the Celtics slowed him down in Game 4 (7 points). Gotta limit his penetration. I'm tired of seeing him drop that floater in the paint.
The Wild Card: Al Horford
After missing 4 months with a pectoral injury, Al Horford looked out-of-sync in 20 minutes of action Sunday night. He's a major upgrade over Jason Collins. The Celtics will have to respect his mid-range jumper. Plus, he can run on the break, provided his legs are there.
How we see it goin' down
The Celtics have all the momentum and the Hawks spirits are not high. But least we forget, this Celtics team doesn't always slam the door on teams. Remember the two seven-game series in 2008? In 2010, the Celtics were unable to sweep the Heat and Magic despite leading both series 3-0.
