No one expected it coming into this round, but the Boston Celtics are staring in the face of a four game sweep to the eight seeded Chicago Bulls.

Chicago got 19 points and nine rebounds from Portis in the opener.

"I could hear Rondo, 'Yeah, they gave up". "You get three or four days of prep on a team, lock into their gameplan". I don't know what it is. I thought a playoff appearance would be brief and tragic, and just enough to keep GarPax and their handpicked coach around.
Rondo answered with leadership, his unique brand not fully appreciated perhaps until now, with the Bulls on the brink of their biggest moment since the 2011 Eastern Conference finals.
The Boston Celtics lost to the Chicago Bulls, 111-97, on Tuesday to fall down 0-2 in a series against the East's eighth seed.
