It’s a Good Thing the Celtics Have Home Court Advantage

Great offense is fun to watch, but killer defense is a total blast to witness.  Today, the Celtics beat the Atlanta Hawks by 34 points – holding the Hawks to only 65 points in 60 48 [Doh! Thanks Lorne] minutes of basketball.  The Celts fourth victory in the best of seven series was their fourth at home.  The green team lost all three of their games on Atlanta’s turf.

Interestingly, the other three home victories were by 25, 19 and 23 points.  One would think that a team that can win so convincingly on their home parquet AND had the best regular season record in the NBA, might have taken fewer than the full set of seven to win the series, but it was not to be.  Strange.

Bring on the Cavs.  Hopefully, we’ll get to witness more defensive masterpieces in the second round of the playoffs and beyond.

  1. I’m guessing you mean “48 minutes of basketball”. Since the overtimes are 5 minutes each, I can’t even make my joke about winning by 34 points in overtime.

    Congratulations to the Celtics. They now have to avoid the fate of the #1 seed in the eastern conference of the NHL, which was pushed to a seventh game by the 8th seeded bruins, won it, and then were pushed out in five games by the (7th) seeded Philadelphia Flyers.

  3. Doh! 48 minutes, not 60. I guess I shouldn’t be lying on my back on the sofa, laptop on knees while I post. Especially not after having chugged down 1.5 martinis.
