How do you expect a faster paced game with no Rondo? Who's going to run the break for Boston? The Celtics only had 11 fast break points in the first game and I would be willing to bet that Rondo played a part in atleast 8. The Hawks are the faster team.
It will benefit the Celts to slow the pace of the game down since Atlanta is younger and faster. Celts are also short-handed tonight and their bench is weak which is another reason for them to conserve energy and slow the pace of the game.
