NBA Playoffs 2012, Celtics Vs. Hawks: Celtics 'Are Who They Are'

The Boston Celtics took a 2-1 series over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night, in overtime, behind the 20th triple double of Rajon Rondo's career.

Matt Moore of CBS Sports says both teams "are who they are":

And where the Celtics are is up 2-1 with another game at home and a chance to put the boot to the throat of a Hawks team that have played right there with the Celtics throughout the series. One team knows how to win, the other turns to bad offensive sets by questionable offensive threats too often.

Game four is scheduled for Sunday, when the Celtics will look to take a commended 3-1 series lead. With the Bulls and Hawks decimated by injuries, it's looking like a Celtics-Heat crash course for the Eastern Conference Finals.
