I saw this game last night wow what a great game for Josh Smith, Horford and company. But the key difference between these two teams is simply the fans. I mean was I the only one to notice that games 1 and 2 in Boston were DEAD QUIET? On TV it looked like in Boston they were all looking at their cell phones and PDAs probably looking at that Red Sox score and thinking "I should be at Fenway Park than here". Games 1 & 2 in Boston was probably one of the softest playoff crowds I have heard in years. Bibby made the statement that "Boston fans are fairweather fans" .. LOL hes exactly right some of them are worst than New York, Pittsburgh and Miami fans because last year the C's didnt get but 10 people in that arena but this year its a "quiet and whispering only" crowd. The Atlanta Hawks have been underdogs for years yet they manage to always get a warm crowd in the Phillips Arena. I was saying to myself if Boston doesnt sweep this series it would be disappointing but then I realized.. the fans are better in ATL and this Hawks team is definately younger.

Not to mention the Phillips Arena was rocking and by about 50 decibels louder than the Garden.. the crowd is always a factor.
