The Celtics have had their share of struggles in the past few weeks. Friday night hasn't been any better.
The Boston Celtics have lost five games in a row. They lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Detroit Pistons. On Friday night, the Celtics looked as if they were going to break out of that slump when they raced out to a 27-point lead against the Atlanta Hawks.
In the third quarter, however, the Hawks opened with a 21-2 run to tie the game at 59. What began to look like an easy (and much needed) win for the Celtics has suddenly become a dogfight against Josh Smith and the Hawks.
This begs the question: are the Celtics officially more hilarious than the Lakers?
