Notebook: Celtics 90, Hawks 84


Posted Saturday May 5, 2012 12:13AM

By Brian Robb, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: Rajon Rondo delivered his 20th career triple-double, lifting the Boston Celtics to a 90-84 victory over the shorthanded Atlanta Hawks in overtime. The win gives the Celts' a 2-1 edge in the best-of-seven first round series. Ray Allen added 13 points off the bench in his return from a right ankle injury, but Rondo was once again the star posting 17 points, 14 rebounds, and 12 assists for the hosts. The superb effort helped Boston build an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter in the back-and-forth affair, but the undermanned Hawks fought back without injured star Josh Smith. Behind the strong play of Joe Johnson (29 points) and Jeff Teague (23 points) Atlanta closed regulation with an 8-0 run to force overtime before going cold in the overtime frame, where Boston outscored the visitors 10-4.

QUOTABLE: It wasn't pretty, but who says it has to be pretty. At the end of the day we have to win four games and tonight we found a way."
-- Paul Pierce

THE STAT: The Hawks couldn't find the bottom of the net during overtime, hitting just 2-of-11 shots from the field, resulting in a mere four points over the five-minute period.

TURNING POINT: After going scoreless in the final 4:02 of regulation, the Celtics jumped out with six quick points in the opening two minutes of overtime, establishing a four-point lead which the Hawks were unable to overcome.

QUOTABLE II: "Being back on the floor I felt alive, like I was back in my own skin. ... My ankle is achy and mad at me now ... but I'm in a good place."
-- Allen

HOT: Teague -- The third-year guard stepped up his scoring without Smith in the lineup and scored 16 of his 23 points in the second half on 6-of-10 shooting, helping Atlanta fight back in the second half to force overtime.

NOT: Pierce -- Boston's captain came back to earth after his sensational 36-point effort in Game 2. Despite doing plenty of damage at the free throw line (14-of-14), Pierce struggled with his shot all night, missing nine of his 11 attempts in regulation.

QUOTABLE III: "We've been a team that has had adversity throughout the season like everybody else and it says a lot about your team when they can step up in the playoffs shorthanded and still put themselves in a position to win the game. We certainly had our opportunities. We just fell short."
-- Hawks coach Larry Drew

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Rondo's triple-double was the 7th of his career in the postseason. The point guard also extended his streak of consecutive game with double-digit assists to 26.

INSIDE THE ARENA: Bruins president Cam Neely received a rousing ovation from the TD Garden crowd, as he took in the game with Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck at courtside.

ROOKIE WATCH: With the stakes heightened in the postseason Greg Stiemsma has seen his minutes reduced significantly, as Atlanta went with a small lineup for the majority of the contest. The center grabbed three rebounds in six minutes of action.

NOTABLE: Smith remains day-to-day with the left knee injury suffered in Game 2. "He moved around, but [he] was noticeably limping," Drew said of Smith. "There's been some improvement [from Tuesday] but this was the first day he tried to run and jump on it, but he just couldn't do it." ... Allen had missed the past 11 games with his right ankle injury. Tracy McGrady rolled his ankle in the second quarter, but returned to action in the second half. ... Avery Bradley left the game in the third quarter with a sore left shoulder and did not return. Doc Rivers said he will be re-examined on Saturday. ... Atlanta outscored Boston in the paint 28-6 in the first half. ... Erick Dampier saw his first action of the postseason with Smith, Zaza Pachulia and Al Horford all sidelined. The veteran center has six points and six rebound in 22 minutes. ... The Celtics are hitting just 18.4 percent of their shots from downtown through three games in the series. ... Atlanta has managed to shoot just 37.8 percent from the field overall as both offenses continue to struggle.

UP NEXT: Game 4 at the TD Garden on Sunday May 6th at 7 p.m.
