Recap: House of Horrors

Phillips Arena continued to be Boston’s personal house of horrors tonight, as the Celts get smoked by the Hawks 110-83 in Game 5.

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 33: The Game 5 Preview

When things get weird, the Celtics get good, and the Celtics got good at the right time in Game 4… which means they now basically have a best of 3 series against the Hawks. Can they win one on the road? Will Marcus Smart continue any level of what he showed late Friday? And how... [More]
