Celtics-Hawks Game 5

After two intense wins in Boston to tie up their first round series at 2-2, the Celtics are in Atlanta tonight to take on the Hawks in Game 5.

Can Isaiah Thomas and the C's keep it going?

A good first quarter will help to neutralize the crowd and keep the Hawks from getting over confident.  In both losses in Atlanta at the start of the series the Celtics dug themselves early deficits that they could not recover from.

Brad Stevens will need to continue to make in-game adjustments to keep the Hawks off balance as Avery Bradley is still out and neither Kelly Olynyk or Jae Crowder is fully healthy.

I didn't think the Celtics had much of a chance after going down 2-0 and despite the two wins in Boston, I still think Atlanta will take the series.  But with the way the Celtics compete on both ends of the floor, anything is possible.
