Recap: Celtics erase 18 point deficit, shock Atlanta

Full disclosure: I had a recap written midway through the 4th quarter. At that point the Celtics were down 14, they were shooting less than 30%, and the Hawks are the Hawks. This game was over.

Bird to ‘Nique: “You can’t guard me, Homes”

I missed this fantastic trash talking tale about Larry Legend in Sunday’s Herald.
