Eye on the Enemy: Horford the game changer?

The Celtics are trying to eliminate the Atlanta Hawks and move on to the Conference semis. We'll regularly check in on the competition to see how things stand. Al Horford changes the dynamics at both ends. You’ll notice that Boston, which prides itself on playing D, couldn’t stop Horford in the final 2 1/2 minutes [...]

Enemy Chatter: KG can get anything he wants

Enemy Chatter: KG can get anything he wants

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Atlanta. Kevin Garnett scares me. Garnett's intensity, as scary and as disturbing as it is, isn't the scariest part. It's that it seems like he can get anything [...]

Your Morning Dump… The Celtics end of game execution was awful

Your Morning Dump… The Celtics end of game execution was awful

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. But when Pierce airballed a jumper with 18.9 seconds left with the Celtics trailing by a point, no one on the court apparently realized they were not [...]

Recap: Hawks eke out a win

Recap: Hawks eke out a win

 That was a roller coaster game. The Celtics led big. The Hawks led big. Each team made runs over the final 15 minutes that had you thinking "we got this!" When the dust settled, the Celtics had the ball with 10 seconds remaining and a chance to win it… but Rajon Rondo coughed up the [...]

Hawks shake up lineup for Game 5

Hawks shake up lineup for Game 5

Larry Drew is moving Kirk Hinrich and Jason Collins to the bench. I expected Al Horford to start. Even if he's still rusty, Horford is a better option than Collins. Marvin Williams is shooting 21% in this series. I'm guessing Drew wants him to defend Paul Pierce? This switch will put either Rajon Rondo or [...]

Enemy Chatter: The Hawks were without their three best front court players

Enemy Chatter: The Hawks were without their three best front court players

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Atlanta. Instant Reaction: It's a tough loss to swallow, but read the title. The Hawks were without their three best front court players and were still in it. It would have [...]

Update: Josh Smith doubtful for Game 3 with sprained ligament

Update: Josh Smith doubtful for Game 3 with sprained ligament

The Hawk announced today via Twitter that Josh Smith, who left with 4:20 left in the 4th quarter last night, has a sprained ligament in his left knee. Atlanta's Josh Smith has a strained left tendon and his status is day-to-day. If Smith is unavailable for Game 3, then we'll see a lot of more [...]

Horford out for C’s series, Pachulia to miss time too

Horford out for C’s series, Pachulia to miss time too

Michael Cunningham (ajchawks) on Twitter via kwout Horford being out only hurts the Hawks in that it doesn't give them that extra player that can help them.  He's been out for too long to be a big difference maker.  Like I said in the last post, Pachulia's foot injury is worse because it kills their [...]

Eye on the enemy: Hawks pulled one out of their asses

The Boston Celtics will face the Atlanta Hawks in the first round of the NBA playoffs. With that in mind, and home court advantage still in doubt in this series, we'll be keeping a closer look on the Hawks to see what they're up to. With the Hawks up four against the Clippers last night [...]
