In a bunch of possessions in the first half, ATL was kicking the ball over the place and it was rolling right to an open shooter. When they did run their sets, everything they thre up was going in the hoop.
I would hope that some of the Celtics were frustrated at half time. And I'm not surprised that cooler heads prevailed and they stuck tot heir game plan. The Cs have been the est defensive team the past five seasons, and their system is proven. Maybe the new guys will start to understand how to play Celtics basketball - 100% effort on defense, always ready to play help defense, and unselfish, move the ball offense where you take the open shot.
