The Celtics found themselves down 15 points at halftime to Atlanta, but battled back to tie the game in the fourth. The rally was not quite enough as Atlanta managed to grind out the win in the end, but Boston should have some confidence going into Game 2. The Hawks had three players score 20 or more and Jeff Teague took over the game with 23 points and 12 assists. Boston will have to slow him down and Isiah Thomas will need to lead the Celtics’ charge. Look for Boston to show the same grit they had in the second half of Game 1, but from the start.
