The Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks are facing off in Game 4 of their first round NBA Playoffs series with the Celtics leading 2-1, and there was an odd instance of confetti raining down on the court in the first quarter that caused a stoppage of play.

The Celtics were leading the Hawks and the time by the score of 33-22, and they have been able to maintain a lead for the majority of the first half. The Hawks need the game to avoid falling down 3-1 in the series going to Boston for Game 5. A lot of fans came out with reactions to the confetti, so let’s get to them.

If you told Hawks fans that confetti would be falling on the floor at their arena during the NBA Playoffs, they probably would have been really happy to hear that. This definitely is not the scenario that Hawks fans would have envisioned it happening.
For now, Hawks fans have to hope that Trae Young and his team can pull a comeback on the Celtics in Game 4 to even the series at two game apiece.
