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. I completely believed that. So did the Hawks. Because the Hawks decided the 7:43 mark of the 4th quarter [...]
