Joe Johnson extended the Hawks' season alongside the four players he began it with.

Atlanta coach Larry Drew threw together a throwback lineup last night, and it helped defeat the Celtics, 87-86, in Game 5 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.

Drew's biggest move was to start center Al Horford, who missed 55 games with a torn pectoral muscle. Horford led the five Atlanta starters in double figures with a game-high 19 points along with 11 rebounds.
