Allen’s 22 Helps Celtics Overcome Foul Disparity and Push Streak to 14

For almost three quarters, nothing was going the Boston Celtics’ way.

2nd Half Leads Celtics Past Hawks

In beating the Atlanta Hawks 102-90, the Celtics originally looked like they might have a tough time of things.

The last time the Raptors and Celtics hit the court, Rajon Rondo did not play with a hamstring injury, and the Celtics lost 102-101, thanks to some shoddy officiating.

Shaq Too Big for Nets; Celtics Rally in Boston
