Boston leads this series 3-1 and Game 5 could lead to an elimination of the Hawks. Boston has defeated Atlanta in 7 of 11 Playoffs games of all time.
The Hawks know what they're up against, facing an experienced team with a trio of aging stars who clearly have something to prove.
"They've got guys who've been in wars, who've been in the trenches, who've been in these type of situations more than we have," Atlanta coach Larry Drew said. "When you look at their history over the last few years with Paul and KJ and Ray, and now with the way Rondo has been playing, they've always been a dangerous team to me."
