Recap

Hawks avoid meltdown to knock off Celtics


By Matt Winkeljohn, for NBA.com

ATLANTA (NBA.com exclusive) -- With the NBA season approaching its midpoint and the Atlanta Hawks having already displayed two personalities -- one distinctly good, the other not so much -- Friday's visit by the Celtics took on a deeper and richer hue than most January games.

It was the start of a three-games-in-four-days referendum on a potential up and comer, and Jamal Crawford and the Hawks played like it mattered in a 93-85 win that left Atlanta 2-0 against Boston.

The Hawks play at Orlando on Saturday -- with first place in the Southeast up for grabs -- and at Boston Monday.

Crawford played as if he wants his team to matter in a tight Eastern Conference race as he scored 14 of his team-high 18 points in the fourth quarter, when Josh Smith grabbed six of his 11 rebounds and Atlanta stalemated the Celtics' comeback attempt after stuffing Boston in a 29-15 third.

"We respect them so much, but we don't fear anybody," Crawford said. "When we go out there we know it's kind of a bar to see where we're at, and they're not fully healthy right now but it's a big win for us."

With Boston's Kevin Garnett out with a bum knee, the Hawks gained modest traction in the paint with a 34-30 edge. But the Celtics missed their All-Star forward, as Rasheed Wallace scored 11 points on 5-for-15 shooting and grabbed just three rebounds.

As with most games involving the Celtics, this one was chiefly about defense.

Boston (25-9) clogged up Atlanta's offense on the way to a 45-39 halftime lead, and benefitted from the long ball, making 7-for-12 3-pointers to the Hawks' 1-for-5 effort.

While Atlanta's defense was good in the first half, it was great after intermission and the game became a tale of two halves offensively for the Hawks (23-12).

In the third, the Hawks more closely resembled the squad that began the season 11-2 than the one that entered the game 11-10 since.

They moved the ball with purpose, registered 10 assists on 11 made shots, hit 4-for-8 treys, and defended aggressively as Boston made just 5-for-22 shots.

"It seemed like every time you looked up, they had a guy open from 3," said Paul Pierce, who led the Celtics with 21 points. "I thought they pushed the ball a little bit more, and Jamal Crawford made a couple big plays for them."

Crawford scored just two points in the third, but eight Hawks scored in the period as he and every Atlanta starter finished in double digits. Atlanta made 7-for-11 3-pointers in the second half.

"That's how it's got to be. I don't want teams to just be able to settle in on Joe Johnson," Hawks coach Mike Woodson said. Mike Bibby scored 17, Al Horford 16, Smith 15, Johnson 12 and Marvin Williams 11. "We've got five, six, seven guys that can score the basketball if we're not selfish."

After falling 15 points behind, the Celtics started closing before Crawford scooped up a loose ball in the left corner while going out of bounds and Boston center Kendrick Perkins (15 points, 14 rebounds) looming. He hit an off-balance 3-pointer with 7:13 left while Perkins fouled him to complete a four-point play and push the lead to 78-67.

The Celtics narrowed the lead to 78-76 on Pierce's layup with 5:26 left, but Bibby, who'd just entered the game to give the Hawks three guards on the court in Johnson, Crawford and himself, nailed a 3-pointer from the top.

Crawford's long (28-foot) trey with 52 seconds left stretched the Hawks' lead to 91-82, and the Celtics were all but finished.

"I've got combinations that I can use coming down the stretch run," Woodson said. "We can mix and match, I think, with the best of them. Playing small ball doesn't hurt us."

Size didn't matter much Friday.

The Hawks have taken their foot off the gas in a few wrenching losses this season. Not Friday.

"We didn't have the meltdown," Woodson said. "I look the two Cleveland games, Orlando, where we had sizable leads but we didn't bring it home. But tonight we just grinded. Any time you play the Celtics, Orlando, the Cavaliers, they kind of beat up on you if you don't come with it physically."

Boston coach Doc Rivers was impressed with one team.

"I thought the Hawks were more physical than us, and they really attacked us, especially in the second half," he said. "Right now, you have to give it to them. They are the better team."
