Either Mike Bibby is blocking out the boos or he hears them and just doesn’t care. Bibby scored eight points in the first four minutes of the third quarter. He had only scored four in the first half. Bibby is coming off of a 22-point game against the Chicago Bulls in which he shot 9-for-18 from the field and 4-for-10 from three-point range.

At the half … Celtics 51, Hawks 51

Once again, the first quarter wasn’t pretty. The beginning of the second quarter wasn’t that much better either. But once the Celtics starters hit the court halfway through the second, the Cs regained momentum and find themselves tied at the half.

  • Ray Allen is leading all scorers with 15 points (5-9 FG). Reserve Flip Murray is leading the Hawks with 12.
  • It’s fitting that this game is tied considering both teams are shooting 46% from the field and just under 80% from the free throw line.
  • The Hawks, however, are hitting 50% from long range. The Celtic are 2-10.

I’ve seen KG dunk plenty of times as a Celtic but never like this.

Not only did Garnett soar through the air for a two-handed jam, he also drew the foul along the way.

Oh yeah, and he took the first lead on that play.

On Monday night it was Jermaine O’Neal. Tonight it is Solomon Jones. In the last two games someone has crossed Kendrick Perkins at the basket … and lost. Perk has found himself in heated situations down low, both times having the final say by converting on free throws.

The Celtics starters couldn’t get the lead.

The second unit, who has been so reliable, couldn’t take the game back either.

Down 13 in the second quarter, the starting five is back in the game in efforts to save the last few minutes of the half.

Ray Allen has the hot hand for the Celtics right now and they are chipping away at the double-digit deficit.
