Isaiah Thomas remembers late sister Chyna from head to toe

Isaiah Thomas remembers late sister Chyna from head to toe

Their output has caught up to those desires so far during the postseason.

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. Butler also posted eight rebounds and eight assists. Rondo tied the franchise playoff record with 14 assists and just missed joining Scottie Pippen as the only Bull to triple-double in the playoffs. "It's not ideal, but we feel like we can bounce back", said Jae Crowder. "That's where your confidence always comes from".

To replicate such feat, the Celtics must first learn how to beat the Bulls, starting with Game 3 on Friday. 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.

"Nobody gives us our due", Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas told ESPN. The Celtics are now an alarming 2-10 in a dozen playoff games of the Thomas and Brad Stevens era. Butler scored 15 of his 30 points in the fourth and he shook off a rough start to the game which saw Avery Bradley and Marcus Smart hounding him on defense.

Boston are the first number one seed to lose the first two games of an opening-round playoff series since the Phoenix Suns in 1993.

That changed quickly, though, as the Bulls responded with a 20-4 run. At this point in the year it's all about doing whatever it takes to win, and each game is different.

Chicago again used its big men to push the Celtics out of the paint and was quicker to the ball in a lot of 50-50 situations.

"I could hear Rondo, 'Yeah, they gave up". We knew their stuff, jut like they knew ours. Those numbers helped Chicago open up a 12-point lead during the first period.

"(Rebounding) was the game.

Dennis Schroder scored 25 points and Paul Millsap had 19 for the Hawks, who made 32 of 39 free throws, but only shot 43.6 per cent from the field and committed 21 turnovers. He played some of his best basketball in years over the second half of the season and has only improved during the two playoff games. "I don't have any siblings, but I have some very, very close people in my life and I can only imagine how that would take your heart away", James said. Due to their inability to finish plays, Boston's opponents averaged 44.5 rebounds a night with 10.8 coming on the offensive glass. I don't know what it is.

Stevens said Thomas, a former standout for the Washington Huskies and Curtis High School in University Place, plans to play in Game 2, then travel home to be with family and help complete funeral arrangements.

Bradley says it's important now to pick Thomas up on and off the court. The credit for this team sticking together through injuries, through everything to put us in the position to make the playoffs, it goes to everyone. Chicago was also a beast off the boards, out-rebounding the Celtics, 53-36.
