On Friday night, the Celtics took what was likely the best punch the Atlanta Hawks have to offer in their 130-122 loss in Game 3 of their first round playoff series.
On Sunday night, the Green took a body blow, but stayed up and knocked the Hawks to the mat.
The Green picked up a 129-121 victory, improving to 3-1 in the series and pushing the Hawks to the brink of elimination.
The Celtics led for much of the night, but the Hawks managed to stay in the game until the final minutes. Boston was led by Robert Williams, who turned in a massive performance off the bench. He put up 13 points and hauled in 15 rebounds before fouling out of the game with a minute to play.
Williams had 12 rebounds in the first half, the most by a Celtic in the first half of a playoff game since Kendrick Perkins in 2008. He added two blocks, two steals, and three assists.
