The Chicago Bulls Belong In the Playoffs After All

The Chicago Bulls Belong In the Playoffs After All

While some might be shocked by how Chicago has played as a No. 8 seed that was just 41-41, Butler made it clear he's not one of those folks. Barkley led the Suns to a 120-114 victory by pouring in 43 points, pulling 15 rebounds and handing out 10 assists. Rondo's night ended with 11 points and 14 assists on a night when all five Bulls starters reached double figures.

Dwyane Wade also scored 22 points, while Rajon Rondo had a vintage performance against his former team. "That's where your confidence always comes from".

After a better start by the Celtics, a familiar theme started to take hold as the Bulls took control by again dominating on the offensive glass.

The big Game Two effort followed a Game One in which Rondo contributed 12 points, seven rebounds and six assists. The incident occurred midway through the fourth quarter of Boston's Game 2 loss to the Bulls at home Tuesday night, and can be seen here.

But the front office wanted to hang on to Rondo's contract as a possible trade chip, and the coaching staff eventually decided the veteran point guard could have value leading the second unit, imparting his wisdom to young players like Denzel Valentine, Bobby Portis, Michael Carter-Williams, Paul Zipser and Cris Felicio. "That's the game. That's the series", Crowder said. And, what would the relationship be like with Rondo and Wade after years of battling each other in the playoffs? Take it one game at a time and try to get a game three.

The Celtics need to find a way to prevent the Bulls from generating more opportunities than them, and they have a much better chance at doing that with steals than rebounding. "It wasn't moving at all", Celtics guard Avery Bradley said. He knows what it takes to win. Sure, why not. Can the Bulls keep switching and playing great defense? He only got eight shots in the first game and only 13 in the second game, but he's a special talent and deserves to have more. Have failed to score 100 points in three of their last four postseason games dating back to past year.

The crash came a day before the 28-year-old Thomas and the Celtics launched their National Basketball Association first-round playoff series against the Chicago Bulls.

If you lose a game because, say, because Bobby Portis goes ham, you might not feel all that anxious. "As I told him, "Way to run your team".

Thomas did not speak to the media afterward and will now head to Tacoma, Washington to be with his family to finalize funeral arrangements for his sister, Chyna Thomas.

In case you missed it on Tuesday, the Bulls lost a tiebreaker with Portland, so they'll pick 16th in round one of the NBA Draft on June 22nd. "You have to continue to be positive and go out there and play hard no matter what the outcome is". You hear a lot of people talk about how that time - especially in a guy's sanctuary, like the gym is for Isaiah - is able to kind of alleviate the pain for those couple of hours.
