Score: 74 - 83
Point Spread: +1½/-103 Boston
On Sunday the NBA Power System Play is on the Boston Celtics. Game 513 at 7:05 eastern. The Celtics are 56-25 all time in game ones in the NBA Playoffs and have won 8 of their last 9 first round games. This could be the swan song for this team as Garnett, Allen and Pierce are a year older. However they are taking on an Atlanta team that they can handle here. The Hawks are 6-17 all time in NBA Playoff game ones and fit a system that pertains to teams that arrive after shooting 505 or higher in their last 4 games. These teams don't normally perform well in this situation. The Celtics are the #2 defensive team in the league and have won both times as a road dog of 3 or less this year. They are 15-2 vs South East Division teams and 17-5 after allowing 85 or less points. Atlanta is 2-10 vs teams who allow 91 or less this season. Look for the Celtics to get game one tonight.
