Celtics D key to beating Hawks

There is little doubt that the key for the green beating ATL. is at the D end. The C's need to continue high pressure on the ball and switch of all screens- ATL. got way too many open looks after Q1 last night as we were chasing around screens- they have one/two decent, consistent shooters- Johnson and Teague- the rest- when under any pressure are below average at best- including Josh "brick" Smith. If we keep up defensive pressure- it will lead to more to's by ATL- and that is where Rondo and the green thrive- transition offense- threes and drives to cup by Pierce and Rondo- we also need to get Pierce and KG involved early and often in game 6- if we do these things- its lights out for the year at the "highlight" factory- give me a break- I mean "really!" By the way- does anyone remember the last time Pietrus actually made a shot? I sure don't.



Be respectful and keep it clean. Thanks.
