End of Game
From Elias: * The Hawks overcame a 19-point halftime deficit to win at home last night, something the franchise had never done before.
After ripping off a season-high 6-game win streak the Celtics have now lost 6 straight, the most since Kevin Garnett joined the team in the 2007-08 season.Defense has been a problem as Boston is allowing 14 more points per game over the last 6, and Paul Pierce has disappeared, scoring 5 less points per game over the 6-game slide.
From Elias: Rajon Rondo's triple-double on Friday was his 3rd straight against the Hawks. Rondo is the first player to have a triple-double in 3 straight games vs one team since Jason Kidd did it against the Bobcats (1/4/08 to 2/8/08)
From Elias: The last time Boston lost after leading by at least 27 was Dec. 5, 2003, when they blew a 29-point lead in a loss to the Suns.
Rajon Rondo has 15 triple-doubles since start of last season (including playoffs). The next-most in NBA in that span is LeBron James with 3.
After taking an unorthodox path to the NBA, Jonathon Simmons plans to look (and play) his best upon arrival at All-Star Weekend.
Wednesday night, Adam Schefter served as the sideline reporter for the Thunder's win over the Knicks. Here's how it went!
LeBron James becoming one of the greatest basketball players in history is all but settled. His second act? Become a global entertainment icon.
