Mike Bibby: We Could Have Beaten the Celtics

Things played out particularly well, with the Hawks earning the franchise’s first postseason berth in nearly a decade with Bibby piloting the ship.

But he struggled in the series against Boston, something that he shook off immediately after that Game 7 loss but has not forgotten.

“I think we definitely could have beaten them,” Bibby said. “We just didn’t play well on the road at all, and I mean at all. But things happen for a reason. Maybe that was the start for us to excel this season.”
