12:00 min left: Boston up 67-63, thanks to a Rondo buzzer beating jumper to end third. Winner of this series gets Philadelphia. Joe Johnson is actually alive and hitting shots. Kevin Garnett is playing out of his mind. Cocktail #3 for your writer. A lot of juggling going on. Gonna be a long quarter.
11:35 left: Erick Dampier’s fat butt gets rejected by Garnett, but he recovers and promptly rejects Ryan Hollins on the other end. These guys are actually getting minutes in a Game 6 of the Playoffs.
10:42 left: Tommy Heinsohn tells Atlanta Hawks owner (who was whining about calls after Game 5) Michael Gearon Jr. to call him after the game. I’d like to hear that conversation.
9:29 left: Josh Smith doesn’t sub in, gets told he can’t be subbed in, then bitches until he gets a technical. It’s plays like that that show Smith is not a winner. Team is down, you’re on the road, and you can shut your stupidass mouth. Ray Allen hits the free throw, Celtics up 72-65. On the bright side for J-Smooth, after the made technical free throw, he can now check in the game!
8:36 left: Kevin Garnett with 26 points and 10 rebounds. Woot. After the Hawks call timeout, Tracy McGrady bricks a three as the teams head to their huddles. For some reason, I find this hilarious. Keep shooting T-Mac. Has anyone called his fat butt Big Mac yet? If not, you heard it here first.
7:45 left: Why does Hinrich wear those glasses?
7:00 left: Haws have gone cold (1 for their last 8), but Celtics can’t land a knockout punch. Boston still up 9, at 74-65. Garnett with a much needed rest. It won’t be short, KG, so suck down some fluids, beat someone up, then check back in.
5:43 left: I knock on Ryan Hollins, but he’s giving Boston some good energy, good defense, and good rebounding. Taken Greg Steimsma’s minutes. That’s too bad for Vanilla Thunder.
Under 5 minutes left, 5 point game. Liquor cabinet being visited at next stoppage of time. Being visited HARD.
3:52 left: Smith to Horford alley-oop makes it a 1 point game. Horford said before the game that he didn’t know if he could go 40+ minutes again. I think he’s played every minute so far. He’s a gamer.
Commercial break: Miller Lite Pop Top Can – “Getting Dumb College Kids Drunker, Faster!”
3:15: Hawks lead. Fucking Brandon Bass, terrible defense. Smith blows right by him for a dunk. I hate Josh Smith.
Under two minutes: A Pierce layup ends a 14-2 Hawks run. After a stop by Boston, Rajon Rondo travels under the basket. Damn, that was a layup and the lead. I want to stop writing and concentrate on this game. But I won’t, because I am a valuable member of the PBT staff!!
42.3 seconds left: The Celtics are dead tired. Exhaused. They can barely stand. This doesn’t bode well for their offense. Garnett well short on a fallaway, but a huge offensive rebound by Hollins. Foul on Horford, timeout Atlanta. Time for Doc Rivers to draw up a play. A big play. LIVE MAS CELTICS!
30 seconds left: KG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 80-79 Boston
12 seconds left: Josh Smith, the guy Celtics fans want shooting the ball, misses terribly. Ray Allen rebound, but only knocks down 1 of 2. Boston is up 2 (81-79) with 9.3 seconds left. I don’t watch the Hawks, usually ever, but I think I can say that wasn’t the guy, or the shot, they wanted. Smith has a boatload of talent, but his jumpshooting has always been his Achilles heel.
3.1 seconds left: Paul Pierce with a huge block (contact, but no foul) on Joe Johnson. Hawks still have it. My heart is acting like it’s in a mosh pit in my chest. Tell my wife and daughter I love them, if I don’t make it.
3.1 seconds left: By the way……IT’S ONLY ROUND ONE!
2.3 seconds left: Why is Marquis Daniels guarding Al Horford? Can someone fucking answer me this fucking question? He just fouled Al (who would have dunked it), so I guess it’s not all bad. Unless Horford makes his free throws. WHICH HE DOESN’T!!!!!!!!!!! 1 of 2 for Horford. The Hawks immediately foul
Paul Pierce. Boston is up 1 with 1.3 seconds left.
Pierce first free throw…..TRUE.
Pierce second free throw……TRUTH.
