NBA Playoffs 2012, Celtics Vs. Hawks: Boston Up 64-41 At Halftime

It's been all Celtics all the time in Game 4 of their first-round series with the Hawks, as Boston has steamrolled out to a 64-41 halftime lead.

With Boston shooting a blistering 63.6 percent from the floor, there have been stretches of the game where it has barely been competitive.

Before he had to limp off to the locker room in the second quarter with a sore knee, Paul Pierce had 18 points on 8-11 shooting. Asides from Pierce, Boston has spread the ball around offensively, with nine players already in the scoring column after only 24 minutes.

Rajon Rondo has been at the center of everything, taking advantage of Atlanta playing off of him defensively to rack up 13 assists.

On the other end of the floor, nothing has gone right for the Hawks, as Joe Johnson has been the only player with any rhythm offensively, scoring seven points on 3-4 shooting.
