Last night at the Garden, KG and the Celtics moved to 4-0 with a 106-83 win over the young Atlanta Hawks. It's the C's best start in 20 years, dating back to the days of Bird, McHale and Parish. Garnett had 27 points, 19 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 blocks. Pierce had 23 points, Eddie House had 19 off the bench and Ray Allen added 14. Rondo notched seven assists.
As a team Boston shot 61.2% for the game and had 30 assists. Scalabrine got hit by Al Horford's hand on a follow-through and he left the game with a concussion. With James Posey (back) already out and Scal likely to be out tonight, the Celtics will be short-handed as they travel down to the Garden State to face the New Jersey Nets. It's the first of four games between the Celtics and Nets this season.
