Boston Celtics Vs. Atlanta Hawks: Celtics 64, Hawks 42 HALF: No Rondo, No Problem For The Cs

Maybe the Atlanta Hawks should have hoped that Rajon Rando's hamstring was healed.  Nate Robinson did what he always does against Atlanta -- scored early and often as it looked like 2007 at the Bulb.

The Hawks shot a miserable 4-for-17 in the first quarter as the motion offense looked like the slow motion offense as Boston opened up 39-13 lead in the first quarter.  They aren't going to have to look back.  I guess I can get back to my poker game.

Atlanta's getting killed on the glass, killed on the field and killed in transition.  The (slow) motion offense looks more like that 13 win stand around Hawks team than the team that took the Cs to seven games three years ago.

A bunch of Hawks had six in the first half, but they still can't contain Robinson who has 16 midway through the third and Kevin Garnett, who was 6for-6 from the field in the first half.  The rout is on folks.  Say goodnight.

Time to get back to poker.
