TEAM TWEETS


 

PREDICTION TIME

Jack Armstrong: If Al Horford was going to play for the Hawks I would have gone with them. Having homecourt will help for the Hawks but as we all know, Atlanta is hit and miss supporting the Hawks. Rajon Rondo is the key guy in this series. You can talk all the 'Big Three' and Joe Johnson-Josh Smith you want but Rondo is the single biggest difference maker in the series and a wonderful competitor. I think he gets them over the hump in a fascinating series. Celtics in 7.
Tim Chisholm: These two Playoff-tested squads will bring the fight but it's unlikely that Atlanta, without Al Horford, has what it takes to sneak past Boston despite having home court advantage in the series. Boston streaked into the playoffs, finding themselves red hot after sliding Kevin Garnett down to center and sticking defensive dynamo Avery Bradley into the starting five. Celtics in 6.
