  • Hawks come back to defeat Celtics, 97-86; Nuggets avenge Lakers for conference finals loss by blowing them out in Denver, 105-79.

    9.2
    The last two defending champs lost tonight. When neither of the two are the "Dallas Mavericks" or the "San Antonio Spurs" or the "Houston Rockets", then that's a good thing. First, Atlanta gave Boston it's second loss of the season by rallying to win by eleven. Good game for them. They should have an excellent season this year. And then a terrible performance in the third quarter by the Lakers is one of many terrible things that went wrong for them in their game against the Denver Nuggets. They got outscored in the third quarter, 29-8. The twenty-nine points isn't as bad as thirty-five or nearly forty, but it is when you score twenty-one points less! A single-digit amount of points scored in one quarter by a Lakers team? Unheard of! Kobe Bryant being held scoreless in a whole half? (the second) Unheard of! Two amazing games. I'm not really a fan of Denver, but I'm glad they got to avenge their playoff series loss from last year in the Western Conference Finals.moreless

    7.0
    Whenever the Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks hook up you can expect fireworks, and tonight was no different. What tonight also proved was that one team is heading in the right direction and getting better, and the other is on the decline. I am shocked to say this, but the Hawks are one of the best teams in the league right now, and the Celtics, while still strong, are only going to be a 5th or 6th seed in the East. The game was fun and it was a great win for the young Hawks franchise.



    It was rivalry night for game 2 as well, but unfortunately the Nuggets had no trouble dispersing the Lakers.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • A normally superb three-point-shooting team, the Boston Celtics only shot 1-for-15 from beyond the three-point-arc Friday in Game 1 of the doubleheader against Atlanta.

    • Kobe Bryant was held scoreless in the second half of his game against the Nuggets. It was the first time he had ever had a scoreless half since April 11, 2004.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Chauncey Billups: When you're an elite team, you want to play the best. The way that we played them [the Lakers] the last game here, in our building, was just embarrassing. So, we wanted to come out here and keep the rivalry alive.
