Celtics ahead 2-0 in series

Boston beat the Atlanta Hawks again in Game 2 and are now in advantage before the games on the road

Home » Celtics ahead 2-0 in series

The second game of the series between the Atlanta Hawks and the Boston Celtics is over. Playing at home, the Celtics beat the Hawks 119-106 and are now ahead 2-0 in the series. This game was better than the first one, especially for Boston, but is starting to be concerning for Atlanta.

Not just because of the two-game disadvantage, which is a huge problem already. But also because the team doesn’t seem to be able to play at their highest level for some reason. And it was no different last night. After leading by 61-49 at halftime, the Celtics relaxed in the third period and saw Atlanta getting closer. But they managed to win the fourth quarter and won the game.

Now the Hawks will host the next two games of the series trailing by two games. Meanwhile, even playing against the crowd, Boston will try to sweep the opponents in the series and start preparing for the next round of the playoffs.
