Bulls beat top-seeded Celtics to take 2-0 series lead

27 April, 2017, 03:04 | Author: Felix Jensen

He was simply playing at a higher level than the entire Celtics team.

Boston hopes they can rebound from this loss by improving their rebounds, as the team has been one of the worst in defensive rebound percentage. I'm not quite sure who's in his life.

Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas takes a shot against the Chicago Bulls.

"I'm not surprised because everybody's so locked in right now", Jimmy Butler said after his 22 points, eight rebounds and four steals helped the Bulls earn a 111-97 victory over Boston in Game 2 on Tuesday night.

Stevens tried adjustments. He used Terry Rozier off the bench after not playing the guard in Game 1. While the Celtics may bounce back and win, I don't see them running away from Chicago.

National Basketball Association players offered their support on social media for Boston Celtics All-Star Isaiah Thomas, who played in Boston's playoff opener Sunday afternoon, one day after the death of his sister.

Thomas was again unavailable to the media after the game. However, Thomas had a great game. Butler also posted eight rebounds and eight assists. A freakish stat, in which the Bulls excel when playing on TNT (the network that showed the first two games of this series) started going around, but I don't really think most were betting on that freaky number to mean anything in an extended series against the team that came out on top in the Eastern Conference. Now, the team looks perhaps the best it has at any point this season. All of those numbers were above his season averages, which meant he escalated his game due to the circumstances.

Isaiah Thomas and Boston Celtics are ready to face the Chicago Bulls and looking for the Postseason tie at present.

The supporting cast needs to pick up the slack if they want to win the series. "So we all got to be prepared but, whatever it takes". Amir Johnson was only 2-8 from the field.

Los Angeles stormed to a 12-point lead in the first quarter, reeling off the kind of dunks that earned the team's Lob City moniker years ago. He helped the Jayhawks to a 31-5 record and a 13th straight regular-season Big 12 title before a loss to OR in the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament. Avery Bradley had 14 points but on 13 shots, and he had four turnovers. And he's really hurting. They were outrebounded by 21, including eight more offensive rebounds.

Horford had little to show for the 31:36 minutes he spent on the parquet while being outplayed by Bulls' pivot man Robin Lopez on both ends of the floor. The Celtics need to figure out a way to stop this before this costs them in another game.

Chyna Thomas died early Saturday in a one-car accident outside Tacoma, Wash.

In general, the Boston Celtics have had time to assess and adjust what all went wrong in Game 1.
