Turner hits game winning shot for the Celtics over top Eastern Conference Team the Atlanta Hawks

I only wished I had NBA TV or the League Pass, so I could have watched this game.  Growing up and started watching basketball in the 80's I was a die hard Celtics fan watching Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parrish.  Last night's game has to be the oddest and interesting game in Boston Celtics History.  I've always heard it doesn't matter how you start a game, but how you finish a game that matters.  The Boston Celtics never once in this game lead until Evan Turner hits a game winning jumper to give the Boston Celtics an 89-88 over top seeded Eastern Conference NBA Team Atlanta Hawks.  I have to admit I'm stunned and baffled by this win.  To me a win is a win though as long as you played within the rules.  Jared Sullinger lead the way for the Boston Celtics with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 15 rebounds.   Marcus Thornton scored 14 points and 3 rebounds off the bench. Evan Turner scored 12 points, 9 assists, and 7 rebounds.   The Boston Celtics trail the 8th seeded Miami Heat by 1 and a half game for the 8th seed.   In the loss for the Atlanta Hawks, Al Horford lead the way with 22 points and 12 rebounds. DeMarre Carroll added 14 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals.    Here are the stats for each team.
