All systems go. Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Avery Bradley are all set to play in Tuesday night's Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals between the Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta, GA, according to WEEI play-by-play voice Sean Grande.
Paul Pierce and Avery Bradley will both start; Ray Allen tells @SeanGrandePBP his ankle feels "perfect". Grande & Max call Game 5 on WEEI.— Boston Celtics (@celtics) May 8, 2012
Boston leads the best-of-seven series, 3-1, and can win the series and advance to the conference semifinals with a win. The winner of the Boston-Atlanta series faces the winner of the Chicago Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers. Philadelphia leads that series, 3-1.
