NBA Playoff Recap

  • The Atlanta Hawks could not take advantage of Rajon Rondo's one-game suspension. Although the Hawks had an 11-point lead in the 2nd half, they were outscored by the Celtics 26-14 in the 4th quarter, and the Celtics ended up winning 87-80. The series is tied at one game apiece.
  • Oh, and Paul Pierce celebrated by Tebowing.
  • Derrick Rose was on the bench in a suit, but his team needed him on the court, as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Chicago Bulls 109-92 to even the series. Jrue Holiday led the Sixers with 26 points and 6 assists.
  • The Denver Nuggets were down by as much as 19 in the 2nd half of Tuesday night's game against the Lakers. They came back to push it within 4, which is where the game ended, 104-100. The Lakers have a 2-0 lead as the series shifts back to Denver.
  • Kobe Bryant scored 38 points, which was his 83rd career 30-point playoff game. That's more than anybody except Michael Jordan.
