Take the kids for Chinese food. Concede to the fried-rice induced haze and fall asleep on the couch with the Celtics up big. That’s how I envisioned my night going.
The Celtics overcame an extremely slow start and nipped the pesky Hawks, 109-106. It was your classic closer-than-it-should-have-been-against-a-shitty-team win. How close? Boston needed a brazen Marcus Smart three-pointer and Daniel Theis block on sharpshooter/carnival barker Trae Young in the final seconds to secure the victory.
FYI – Kemba Walker was out with the flu.
Tatum finished with 13 points on 2-16 FG.
