NBA PM: Rondo Leading an Improbable Bulls Run

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.

It has not been a good playoff series so far for the Boston Celtics.

Chicago are the first No. 8 seed to take a 2-0 lead in a first-round series - and even better, they did it on the road.

"We don't win a lot of these games without "Do" out there, " All-Star Jimmy Butler said of Rondo. "That's where your confidence always comes from".

The biggest surprise through the first few days of the 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs has been the success of the Chicago Bulls, who have frustrated the Boston Celtics over the first two games of the series, and head back to Chicago up 2-0 over the East's No. 1 seed.

BOSTON (AP) — Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas says the days since his younger sister was killed in a vehicle crash have been the hardest of his life. Instead, he chose to honor his sister by putting up 33 points, 6 assists, and 6 rebounds in a valiant effort against the Bulls Sunday night. His point differential is a stellar +24 in 40 minutes of play, and he also added five steals.

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

Stevens wouldn't discuss who the team's best - or worst - players have been over the first two games of the series. "Tonight, our job was easy".

Jazz: Gobert, who injured his knee just 17 seconds into the series opener, joined two assistant coaches for a pregame meal in the media dining room, an area rarely visited by players. "As I told him, 'Way to run your team.' He did an incredible job with that".

"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.

Those fans booed their team on more than one occasion yesterday morning, including a loud chorus as the final seconds ticked off. One thing we've learned over the years, never underestimate the ability of Gregg Popovich to come up with a winning game plan. "At the same time, we are aware there's a game we have to prepare for and we have to play better than we have the last two".

The Celtics point guard released a heartfelt statement Wednesday summarizing his emotional turmoil following the death of his younger sister and thanking those who have expressed their support since the tragic single-car accident Saturday morning.
