NBA Playoff Preview: Celtics vs. Hawks

#1 Boston Celtics vs. #8 Atlanta Hawks
(Season Series – 3-0 Celtics)

Season Series: 3-0 Celtics
Average Score: 101-87

Best Player Name: Zaza Pachulia (Hawks - Don't act like you knew)
Most Obscure College: Jeremy Richardson (Hawks) attended Delta State. Is this an online place like Phoenix University?
Glenn Robinson Award ("He’s Still In The NBA?" Award): PJ Brown of the Celtics. You hear about the 38-year old Sam Cassell, but PJ Brown is the same age and finished ahead of Kobe Bryant for MVP in 2004-2005.
Best Facial Hair: Scot Pollard

 
Is this a playoff beard or a protest beard for more playing time?

Music Battle: Dropkick Murphy’s “Tessie” vs. Ludacris's “Welcome To Atlanta”. We gotta go with "Welcome To Atlanta" because that's where the playas play.
How The Hawks Will Win: The game is judged based on flash instead of points. The fundamentally sound Celtics would have little chance against the likes of Josh Childress, Salim Stoudamire, & Josh Smith. I mean, they have a guy named SPEEDY Claxton on their team.
How The Celtics Will Win: With a broom.
