BOSTON Teams

Boston Celtics big man Kelly Olynyk said he never felt quite right after aggravating his shoulder injury in the playoffs. "I never really felt 100 percent the whole time," said Olynyk. "I never felt 80. It's tough to deal with and tough going down that stretch of games, you want to be at your best when your best was needed." Olynyk said he'll meet with team doctors to explore best way to get his shoulder healthy, but he has no current plans for surgery.

Roger Goodell said on ESPN Radio that "of course" the NFL would pick up the phone if Tom Brady's representatives called to discuss a settlement to Deflategate. But he gave no indication the league would budge from its four-game suspension.

Hawks beat Celtics 104-92 to clinch series 4-2. The ViewFromVegas is they also covered as 3-point road favorites and the game stayed under 198.5 as both teams dribbled out last possessions. The Westgate SuperBook had the Hawks as -165 series favorites before the playoffs started.

Hawks 104, Celtics 92: A season in which Boston won 48 games and challenged for a top seed in the Eastern Conference ends with a Game 6 loss to the Hawks. A first-round playoff exit will sting, even if Boston was never long for the postseason. The future is bright, particularly if the pingpong balls bounce Boston's way on May 17. The team has its current core under control, but has the cap space for a bigger summer overhaul. It's now up to Danny Ainge and his staff to build a roster capable of competing for a bigger prize.

Celtics won't go quietly. Despite trailing by as much as 28, Boston rallied within 12 with 3:16 to play. As was often the case in this series, the team might have simply dug itself too big of a hole to claw itself out.
