The Hawks hoped that big man Al Horford would be able to play in the playoffs. He had missed a good chunk of the regular season with a torn pectoral muscle, but the team thought he might be good to go by the time the postseason rolled around.
It looks like that was wishful thinking. At least for when the Hawks and Celtics square off in the first round.
I dont feel like it is realistic that I can play for the playoffs, Horford told Yahoo!'s Marc Spears. Obviously, if we advance and start going we will see. But as of right now the way I feel I think I am out for the playoffs.
From Pro Basketball talk:
Without Horford we are going to get a lot of Josh Smith on Kevin Garnett, which should be entertaining. But the way Boston is defending right now and getting great play from their role players like Avery Bradley and Brandon Bass, I just dont see the Hawks advancing. Not without Horford.
Intentionally or otherwise, the guy who allegedly pulled the fire alarm at the Steelers’ hotel Sunday morning may have also provided the average Bud Light-loving Bostonian a new motto.
“I’m drunk. I’m stupid. I’m a Pats fan,” Dennis Harrison told police after he was arrested, according to the Boston Globe.
Citing the State Police report, the Globe wrote Monday that Harrison was talked into pulling the alarm while at a party in Revere, with a friend driving the 25-year-old to the Boston Hilton Logan Airport hotel Sunday morning.
Harrison reportedly walked up to the second floor and pulled the fire alarm before returning to the car, but his friend and the keys were gone. He was then picked up by police while walking away from the hotel.
According to the Globe, Harrison pleaded not guilty to charges of disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and setting off a false fire alarm Monday and was released on personal recognizance.
CSN and Tanguay to Provide Daily Patriots related stories from various cities on the way to Houston on TV, Online and through Social Media All Week Long
The New England Patriots are Super Bowl bound and will take on the Atlanta Falcons in Houston on Sunday, February 5th. CSN New England’s Gary Tanguay is also Houston-bound, boarding a CSN trailer today and starting his road trip to Super Bowl 51 – and fans can get an inside look as TANGUAY TAKES AMERICA!
Tanguay departed from the CSN studios in Burlington, MA this morning at 6AM and has already logged more than 300 miles on his journey to Texas. He will be making several Patriots-related stops along the way including places like New Jersey, Washington, DC, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, New Orleans and more.
"I'm looking forward to telling many off the field stories from the road," said Tanguay. “I’ll be checking in throughout each day on TV, online and on social media and look forward to bringing Patriots fans different types of stories that they normally don’t see.”
