Game 2 between the Atlanta Hawks and the Boston Celtics tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday with the Hawks attempting to take a 2-0 lead over the Celtics before the series shifts back to Boston. The Celtics will be without point guard Rajon Rondo who was suspended for Game 2 after bumping an official during the opener.
The Hawks are treading lightly with Rondo out because they know all to well that Boston is still a formidable opponent even without their point guard.
"They are a veteran ballclub. They've been in those situations where they've had players out. Certainly whether he is there or not, we can't let our guard down."
Game Date/Time: Tuesday, May 1, 7:30 p.m. ET
Location: Philips Arena, Atlanta, Georgia
Series: Atlanta leads 1-0
TV: NBA TV, SportSouth
