Sounds of the game… Celtics 103, Hawks 102

Let’s hope that Wednesday night was just the beginning… the beginning of what could be the best rivalry this year in the Eastern Conference. Anyone attending the Cs encounter with the Atlanta Hawks [1] could tell almost immediately that these Hawks, who nearly dashed the Celtics [2]‘ hopes last spring in the first round, are no fluke. And those same Celtics fans who were shocked when Marvin Williams [3] hit a three-pointer with 7.4 seconds were were overjoyed when Paul Pierce’s rainbow fell through with half a second to go, handing Atlanta their first loss in seven games and improving Boston to 8-1.
