Notebook: Celtics 83, Hawks 80


Posted Friday May 11, 2012 12:48AM

By Brian Robb, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: Kevin Garnett turned back the clock with a season-high 28 points and 14 rebounds, allowing the Boston Celtics to hold off a furious comeback by the Atlanta Hawks and escape with an 83-80 win. With the victory, Boston takes the series 4-2 over Atlanta and advances into a second round matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers. Paul Pierce added 18 points for Boston despite playing on a sprained left MCL, and each team fought valiantly despite a host of injuries on both sides in the scrappy affair. It was Garnett however who saved the day for Boston hitting the go-ahead jumper that gave Boston the lead for good with 30.4 seconds remaining. Al Horford (17 points) had a chance to tie the game for Atlanta after being fouled following an in-bounds play with three seconds remaining, but the center missed one of his free throws, squandering Atlanta's final opportunity to save their season.

QUOTABLE: "First off I want to say thank you to the [Atlanta] owner for giving me some extra gas tonight. My only advice to him is next time he opens his mouth, actually know what he's talking about -- Xs and Os versus checkbooks and bottom lines."
-- Garnett's response to comments from Atlanta's co-owner Michael Gearon Jr. who labeled him as "the dirtiest player in the game" on Thursday in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

THE STAT: Boston pulled out the victory despite shooting just 5-of-16 (31.3 percent) in the fourth quarter. Instead, Boston won with their defense late in the contest, limiting Atlanta to 0 field goals and just one point over the final 2:23 of the game.

TURNING POINT: The Celtics looked to be in trouble in the final minute after Garnett missed a jumper with Boston trailing 80-79 and only 42 seconds remaining in regulation. Late-season addition Ryan Hollins was able to corral a crucial offensive rebound on the possession, enabling Boston to extend the possession and take the lead.

QUOTABLE II: "We're playing like this is it. This could be out last chance together, so we're going to give it one last run and then see what happens."
-- Pierce.

HOT: Horford - Outside of his miss from the free throw line in the closing seconds, Atlanta's center was on fire in the fourth quarter, scoring 11 of Atlanta's 17 points in the frame on 5-of-6 shooting.

NOT: Josh Smith - The power forward has been limited by a sore left knee since Game 2 and he showed the effects of it during the second half tonight. Smith missed seven of his final eight shot attempts from the field, including a crucial miss in the final minute of the game. He finished with a team-high 18 points.

QUOTABLE III: "I just put it on me."
-- Horford on his missed free throw with three seconds remaining that could have tied game.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Garnett -- The power forward delivered not only a magical performance on the offensive end with 28 points, but also shined with his defense, finishing with a season-high five blocks and three steals in addition to tying a season-high with 14 rebounds.

INSIDE THE ARENA: Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork watched the game with his wife at courtside and got a rousing ovation from the Boston crowd.

ROOKIE WATCH: Boston's rokie center Greg Stiemsma continues to lose playing time to Hollins, who has played tremendous defense throughout the series. Stiemsma saw five minutes of action in he first quarter and finished with two rebounds and an assist.

NOTABLE: Rajon Rondo had his streak of consecutive games with double-digit assists snapped at 27. The All-Star finished with 14 points and eight assists. Boston grabbed 11 offensive rebounds, their highest total of the postseason. Atlanta was whistled for three technical fouls. Horford played 46 minutes and had a game-high seven turnovers. Boston's bench outscored Atlanta's 11-9. The Hawks had 10 of their 15 turnovers in the first half. The Celtics went on a 16-0 run in the middle of the second quarter, giving them a nine-point lead. Doc Rivers now has 50 postseason victories with Boston. Jeff Teague had a disappointing five points, nine below his series average.
