The Hawks held the Celtics to seven first-quarter points en route to a 89-72 victory in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series Tuesday night at Philips Arena. The Hawks also used a 15-7 run to start the fourth quarter to take a 23-point lead in the wire-to-wire victory. A number of prominent rappers were there to cheer our team onto victory!
