TOUT: Reaction to Celtics-Hawks Game 5

The Atlanta Hawks bested the Boston Celtics in a Game 5 thriller Tuesday night, 87-86. The game came down to a stolen inbound pass by Celtics guard, Rajon Rondo, with 10 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. With his team trailing by one, Rondo stole the pass in the Celtics’ defensive zone and dribbled the ball the length of the court but was unable to create a Celtics scoring chance as he was forced to into the corner near the Atlanta bench where Hawks center, Al Horford trapped Rondo and forced a game-ending turnover. The Celtics lead the series, 3-2, and will host the Hawks in Boston at the TD Garden Thursday night.
