Celtics Hawks Playoffs
Celtics captain Paul Pierce has an MCL sprain in his knee, but will play for Boston Thursday night when they host the Atlanta Hawks in Game 6 of their first-round playoff series.
Boston’s Big Three still has some life in those old bones.
The Boston Celtics have a chance to close out the Hawks on Tuesday night, and head coach Doc Rivers expects to have all hands on deck in Atlanta.
The Celtics can clinch their series against the Hawks, securing some much-needed rest, with a win in Atlanta Tuesday night.
Celtics captain Paul Pierce didn’t let a sore knee slow him down in Boston’s 101-79 Game 4 victory over the Hawks, scoring a team-high 24-points in under 17 minutes of play.
Celtics shooting guard Ray Allen hit the practice floor on Thursday, and has high hopes he can play in Game 3 against the Hawks Friday night.
After having to sit and watch Game 2 on TV, Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is ready to return for Friday’s Game 3 in Boston against the Atlanta Hawks.
The Boston Celtics will have their hands full without Rajon Rondo in Tuesday night’s Game 2 against the Atlanta Hawks, but should still be confident without the NBA’s assist leader.
