ATLANTA -- Kyle Korver was concerned that the Atlanta Hawks

ATLANTA -- Kyle Korver was concerned that the Atlanta Hawks were about to squander another chance to beat a struggling opponent. Paolo De Ceglie Jersey . "We easily couldve hung our heads there, but we kept fighting, got some good looks and we knocked them down," he said. "The momentum switched our way, and we could just feel it. The game turned really quickly." Jeff Teague scored 19 points, Korver added 17 and the Hawks helped their playoff chances with a 105-97 victory over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night. With four games remaining in the regular season, Atlanta increased its lead to two games over the New York Knicks for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot. Avery Bradley finished with 24 points and Rajon Rondo had 19 points with 12 assists for Boston, which has lost nine straight. The Celtics dropped their 13th in a row on the road, breaking the franchise mark set during the final 13 games of 1978-79. The Hawks, who never trailed after Korver hit his second straight 3-pointer to make it 93-92 with 3:09 remaining, avoided losing at home for the second straight night to a team eliminated from playoff contention. Teague and Korver combined for 18 points, three assists, two rebounds and two steals in the fourth quarter. Paul Millsap finished with 14 points and 14 rebounds and Elton Brand added 13 points and 13 rebounds for the Hawks, who have won four of six. Atlanta lost to Detroit on Tuesday. "We knew we had to win," Teague said. "It was a must win for us, so we came out played with a lot of intensity in the fourth quarter." Boston, which blew a 19-point, third-quarter lead and lost at Detroit in its most recent game on Saturday, couldn't hold a nine-point advantage with 5:44 remaining. "In the second half we had a big lead and we let them back in it," Rondo said. "We have to get stops, and I start with myself and turning the ball over. They turned up the pressure in the fourth quarter and took us out of our offence." The Hawks next three games are against teams ahead of them in the East, including Saturday at home against two-time defending champion Miami. Atlanta matched its biggest lead of the first half at 14 when Shelvin Mack hit a 3 to make it 49-35 at the 6:31 mark of the second. But Rondo, who sat out the loss to the Pistons to rest his surgically repaired right knee, scored seven points in the last 2:34 of the second, helping Boston cut the lead to 56-51 at halftime. Rondo had a few dazzling moments in his first game in Atlanta since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament Jan. 25, 2013, at Philips Arena. Early in the third, Jared Sullinger stole the ball from Brand under the Atlanta basket and flipped the ball to Rondo, who bounced a pass halfway up the court that led to Jeff Greens fastbreak layup and cut the lead to 56-53. About 6 minutes later, Rondo stole an inbound pass from Brand and hit a runner. He followed on the ensuing possession by driving on Teague and hitting a jumper in the lane to give Boston its first lead at 67-66. The Celtics biggest lead was nine on Rondos two free throws with 5:44 remaining. But Boston was outscored 19-3 over the next 4:31. "Our defence was what really fueled it," Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said. "We picked up our pressure and our effort. We some turnovers and some steals that led to transition baskets, especially a couple of those transition 3s for Kyle."

Faced with the possibility of two big post-season trips under the new college football playoff system, some players parents are doing all they can to see their kids under the spotlight. A bowl game trip can cost thousands of dollars. Although schools are permitted to reimburse families who need it for some costs out of a special assistance fund, some are questioning if its time to provide more help now that teams could play in two games in the post-season if they progress to the national championship. Two games means two hotel rooms, two car trips, two sets of meals on the road. Ohio State coach Urban Meyer brought the issue up right after his team got a playoff berth. You know what my biggest thing (is)? What are we going to do with our players families? he said. People are all worried about the playoff and whos going to play who. (But) how is that mom and dad or mom and uncle going to go see their kid play? For now, parents of players at Oregon, Florida State, Alabama and Ohio State are rushing to make plans -- and split costs. Cassandra Greene has missed just one of her sons college games -- and that was in 2011. Thats 50 and counting so she can follow senior receiver Rashad Greene, Florida States all-time leader in receiving yards and receptions. A case manager for the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities who is also working on her Masters degree, Greene said bowl trips typically cost her $700-$800. She already has hotel reservations in California and Texas, thanks to a relative who works in the industry, but the financials are a strain. With family support, Im going, Cassandra said. Its tough. Youve got to sit down and make some logical decisions. You have to put some things that you really don't need and some things that you don't have to do, you have to put all that in perspective and say Im going to the game. Some things I said I wanted for Christmas or some things that people were going to buy me for Christmas, I was like, don't give me gifts. Contribute to me going to California. But, its worth it. The money coming into the conferences and schools involved in the new college playoff system is staggering: $50 million per big-five conference, $6 million for each school in the semifinals, $2 million per team for expenses. NCAA rules do not currently allow players to be compensated -- even though ESPN is reportedly paying $500 million this year to televise the CFP games. In a sport where top coaches routinely make between $4 million and $7 million a year and get six-figure bonuses just for getting a team into the playooff, families have few advocates. Carlos Tevez Juventus Jersey. . Under NCAA guidelines, schools can reimburse families for some travel costs. In the case of Ohio State and other major schools, a players family can receive up to $800 for post-season travel. But those guidelines were developed under a one-bowl post-season setup. The parents arent even allowed to share the experiences that the kids have -- which are once-in-a-lifetime experiences, said Guss Armstead, father of Oregon defensive lineman Arik Armstead. He said he is fortunate enough to be able to drive to his sons game. So there needs to be some way that the parents can get some assistance to get to some of their kids games. Alabama linebacker Trey DePriest will have his mother, Angie, grandmother, Sue, and his girlfriend at however many games the Tide has left. As always. The three women will drive together from their home in Springfield, Ohio, to New Orleans and, if Bama wins, will drive to Arlington, Texas, for the national championship game and will split a hotel room to watch DePriest play. Its hard but were going to go, said Angie DePriest, a phlebotomist at Springfield Regional Medical Center. We havent missed a game since hes been playing. The only time theyve flown to a game was for the BCS championship against Notre Dame in south Florida two years ago. The others, they just hop in a car. The expense is a huge challenge but my mother, myself and Treys girlfriend split the cost so it makes it a little easier so its not just on one person, she said. Allowing a few days at the bowl city, a typical roundtrip flight from Gainesville, Florida, to Los Angeles would run between $950 and $1,200, with even distant hotels costing $200 a night with a car needed at around $100 a day. For parents of Ohio State players going to New Orleans, a roundtrip flight, hotels and car would likely cost $2,000 per person per trip. Ohio State AD Gene Smith says he will push for more help for those needing it to see their sons participate. I am on record with the fact we need legislation to allow us to (fund) these trips, he said. But when the stadium lights shine on the players this year, there will be dozens of proud parents, siblings and grandparents in the stands, all who found some way -- any way -- to get there for that one shining moment. We have all those people who sat in that room and selected (teams), Meyer said of the CFP committee. I wonder if they have another room of people deciding to make sure that we treat the players the right way. ------ AP Sports Writers Anne Peterson in Portland, Oregon, John Zenor in Birmingham, Alabama, and Kareem Copeland in Gainesville, Florida, contributed to this report.
