The Atlanta Hawks gave their fans plenty to cheer about with three home wins against the Celtics, but they were finally finished off this afternoon. Boston continued their home dominance with 99-65 curb-stomping, although it could have been much worse. The win sends them into the second round against the Roc-A-Fella LeBrons, having won their four home playoff games by an average margin of 25 points. Now we turn our attention back to the Western Conference where another second round series is set to tip off in Los Angeles.
Diane Dyan Cannon is ready for some fun with two plates of potentially medicinal brownies and expectations are equally high. A series that pits Phil Jackson against Jerry Sloan is always worth watching, and considering the way their respective teams are playing I believe my own excitement is warranted. Enjoy your afternoon of basketball, with occasional glances over to the women's golf just in case Paula Creamer is wearing a pink halter.
