Bulls early surprise of playoffs after taking 2 at Boston

Posted April 20, 2017

The Chicago Bulls have shocked the world and the Boston Celtics once again on Tuesday at the TD Garden in Game 2 of their 2017 NBA Playoffs first round series. The guard finished with 13 points on 6-for-11 shooting with a team-high eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 27 minutes off the Celtics bench.

The Celtics are not going to turn this around by trying to hit a bunch more three pointers, its not going to happen if they try to force everything into the paint, its not even going to happen if they just send everyone to crash the boards at all times. "Tonight, our job was easy. He had nine rebounds and when he gets the ball, he's like, 'Go, go, '" Wade said. It leaves Boston flinging the ball around the perimeter in search of open lanes or shots that have been few and far between, while also being squandered too often when available. Smart has been fined $25,000 after giving a fan the middle finger during Tuesday evening's Game 2 loss to the Chicago Bulls.

It's the first time Thomas has been back home since his 22-year-old sister, Chyna, died in a single-car accident on April 15th.

He didn't play a single minute on Saturday, and he sure played like he doesn't want that to happen again this postseason. For the first time in franchise history the Cavs had 3 players score 25 or more points in a playoff game Monday night.

"That doesn't guarantee you're gonna get it every time, but that gives you a better chance". The series, now tied 1-1, shifts to Milwaukee for Game 4 on Thursday. His step back jumper with 8.9 seconds remaining gave Toronto a 104-100 lead.

"It's just his competitive edge", Raptors coach Dwane Casey said.

"For the playoffs, me in particular, you get a couple of extra days rest for the body, " Rondo said, explaining why he always seems to raise his game to another level in the postseason.

Wade, who engaged in memorable playoff battles with Rondo when they played for the Heat and Celtics, knows this dynamic well. The Jazz played without center Rudy Gobert, who was ruled out of the game and questionable for Game 3 with a left knee sprain.

Gordon Hayward led the Jazz with 20 points and six rebounds. Stevens added no funeral services have been arranged for Thomas' sister yet, and that the plan is for Thomas to rejoin the team Friday in Chicago for Game 3. Even still, Horford's 6.8 rebounds per game ranked 45th overall in the National Basketball Association. Lou Williams scored the first four points in that span, and Beverley found Clint Capela on an alley-oop dunk.

Wade, who scored 22 points in Game 2, had nothing but strong praise for Rondo in his postgame presser, even saying that he once hated going up against Rondo because of how smart and fiery he is.
