Hawks move to 3-0 against Celtics with win in Boston

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Boston Celtics were without Rasheed Wallace but tempers still cost them as they dropped their third game to the Atlanta Hawks this season, 102-96.

The shorthanded Celtics were in double-digit control for most of the evening until a flurry of whistles in the third quarter turned the game on its head. With 6:16 to play in the third, a flagrant foul on Glen Davis ignited Doc Rivers, who picked up a pair of technicals that booted him from the game, followed by another tech on mild-mannered assistant coach Armond Hill.

Though Rivers was accountable in post game, that didn't change the fact that the weight of the sequence tilted the scales in Atlanta's favor for good.

"It was just a terrible situation, whether it was justified or not," Ray Allen said. "Up until that point we were playing well and after that the game did change."

"We gave them momentum," Paul Pierce said. "And it becomes a dogfight after that."

Atlanta trailed by 10 before that sequence. A little over five minutes later, the game was tied. At that point, Boston's defense was officially wavering as the Hawks' pair of wing scorers went to work.

Joe Johnson and Jamal Crawford bookended the fourth quarter with scoring bursts, working mostly out of isolation plays and simple pick-and-rolls. Johnson opened the period with seven consecutive points, adding another five with just over four minutes to play while Crawford cut off air to the already-submerged Celtics, dropping in six points in the final 2:14.

"They have pretty good scorers in those two," Pierce said. "We need to do a better job of putting pressure on them, getting the ball out of their hands and we didn't do that late."

But Crawford's greatest contribution may have been his defense. Atlanta's switch to a zone in the second half effectively stopped Boston's ball movement -- the Celtics had just five assists to eight turnovers after the break -- and freed the Hawks to play the passing lanes. This allowed Crawford to make the play of the night, a deflection and steal of a Pierce pass with 2:51 to play after which he weaved through multiple Boston defenders and threw a pass over his shoulder to Josh Smith for an easy dunk.

"I had to turn it up," Crawford said. "Coach challenged me at halftime and said, 'You need to be a better defender now and it's time to step it up.' "

Boston tied the game once more after that, but an answer for Crawford was never found. Strangely enough, fatigue may have been a factor in Boston's slow-footed D, as assistant coach Tom Thibodeau didn't make a single substitution in the 18 minutes following Rivers' ejection.

"Leaving guys in that were playing well was probably the safe bet," Rivers said.

What made Atlanta's comeback all the more impressive was it came after a thoroughly dominant first-half by Boston. The Celtics hit 4-of-5 from downtown in the first quarter and 8-of-12 in the half, a pace they couldn't possibly keep up, but without Wallace or Kevin Garnett, they still owned the paint despite Atlanta's full stable.

The Hawks didn't crack double digits in points in the paint until 4:30 to play in the second quarter and were walloped in the category, 48-34, mostly due to Boston's shooters keeping shotblockers like Smith out of the lane coupled with the incessant driving of Rajon Rondo. Impressive given the personnel on hand, but it didn't make much of a difference with Atlanta shooting 54 percent in the second half and 4-of-6 from three.

Since a thrilling seven-game series in 2008, everyone has labeled this a rivalry except for the players involved. And though the matchup didn't quite live up to the billing last year, with three straight wins, Atlanta has made it more than clear that this is no Big Brother-Little Brother relationship. The difference very well may be Crawford.

"They have two closers now," Rivers said. "It's very difficult to get stops against guys that don't need the ball to score."
