Bulls, not Celtics, look like the No. 1 seed

Bulls, not Celtics, look like the No. 1 seed

"We're the No. 1 seed, and then they say we're one of the worst No. 1 seeds".

Rondo's performance, and the Celtics' lack of a response, left many shaking their heads, including the Celtics themselves - and while the game was still going on.

For instance, Boston has no one to guard Butler: Crowder is too big - Butler can beat him off the dribble - and Avery Bradley, as tenacious as he might be, is too small to stop James Buckets.

Boston Celtics forward Amir Johnson (90) blocks a shot by Chicago Bulls guard Rajon Rondo (9) during the first quarter of a first-round NBA playoff basketball game in Boston, Tuesday, April 18, 2017. Wade was an even bigger surprise than Rondo, but he was in playoff mode with 3 three-pointers that helped the Bulls pull away in the 2nd half.

The Bulls, 41-41 in the regular season, are attempting to become the sixth No. 8 seed to upset a No. 1 in the first round - and the first since the Philadelphia 76ers upset Chicago in the 2012 playoffs. They gave up.' But you never can let a team see that. The No. 8 Chicago Bulls have not only defeated the No. 1 Boston Celtics in the series' first two games, the Bulls dominated the first pair in MA. "We just made some mistakes that are fixable and we'll have a chance to do it [in Game 2]". An emotional Isaiah Thomas finished with a game-high 33 points, along with six rebounds and six assists. "We haven't done that all season, but this is the right time to do it", Butler told the Associated Press.

Two years after an overachieving Celtics team was cheered despite a first-round sweep at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Bradley and company heard the boos this time after another uninspired effort in a 111-97 loss in Game 2.

But, it also seems to be the most fragile smartphone ever because it is covered in glass all-around. Since then, the company has sold 728,000 units of the Galaxy S8 in just one week in the country.

No 6 seed Milwaukee were led once again by the athleticism of Giannis Antetokounmpo - who had 24 points and 15 rebounds - but were undone late on as Malcolm Brogdon and Matthew Dellavedova both missed open threes in the final two minutes. The Bulls must not lose focus in Game 3 as momentum can shift quickly. We played against Boston back in the day, Rondo knew all the plays.

The Bulls host Game 3 on Friday. I don't know what it is.

LeBron James offered his condolences on Monday to grieving Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas. "That's the thing that made us closer and stronger together".

But at the same time I think we can do a much better job making sure that he doesn't get to play his game as much as he wants to. The fun got started for the B's in the second , but not before the crowd was silenced almost four minutes into the period.

Thomas played very well in Game 1, and one expects him to come out with a fury in Game 2 as well.
