Forget about a Boston sweep. The Hawks are headed back to Beantown all tied up with the mighty Celtics. Joe Johnson scored 35 points _ 20 in the fourth quarter _ and Josh Smith added 28 points and seven blocks for Atlanta, which surprised the Celtics again 97-92 on Monday night to even the best-of-seven series at two games apiece.

A Game 5 that many never expected to happen is now on, Wednesday night in Boston.

The Hawks, who had the worst record (37-45) of any playoff team, overcame two double-digit deficits to beat a team that won an NBA-leading 66 games during the regular season. Read more

So much for so-called bad records, huh? All of the sports writers and so-called experts said the playoffs were bad, that teams because of bad records and such, didn't deserve to be in the playoffs. Well, well, well, looky at what we have here: Lowly Atlanta, tied their series with mighty Boston. Lowly Philly tied their series with with mighty Detroit. Winning record Denver swept by Los Angles. So much for the experts, huh?
Teams can't worry about what division, or conference they play in, you have to win games. It seems like the teams that made it to the playoffs, are doing just fine. Players will always decide the outcome of any game. Well, don't forget the refs, no one will mess up a good game quicker than the officials. That aside, you take a team that gets hot at the right time, and anything can happen. Let the players play. Stop hatin' on the players!

You know what was interesting about that game??????
Dominique Wilkins was a guest analyst.
Also Doc Rivers did play for the hawks.
PS
Hawks have been cheating with that gay lil horn at Atlanta, because they just say they can't fix the shot clock just like the Gaytriots cheat with steroids, sony's and signal stealing!!!!!!!!!
Lakers and Pistons suck, Go Celtics and Colts!!!!!
