Celtics trying to avoid 0-2 hole vs. Bulls

Isaiah Thomas to play Game 2 then fly to sister's funeral

Game 3 will be held in Chicago.

Rajon Rondo (9) is guarded by Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas (4) during the third quarter in game two of the first round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs at TD Garden.

Jae Crowder scored 16 points as five Celtics reached double figures. Fred gives us a voice and Rondo gives us another voice.

For the second straight year the Celtics were embarrassed in a Game 2 of the first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs as they fell to Chicago 111-97.

"We've obviously moved past what happened at that time, but we, I think, had lost five out of six or had a very poor stretch, so we needed to inject the pace back into the lineup", Hoiberg said.

"I've always been confident", Portis said.

Who do you want to win this game, HollywoodLifers? Boston got outrebounded 53-36 while allowing 20 offensive boards leading to 23 second-chance points. "When we played against Boston back in the day, he knew all the plays".

While Rondo's time in the National Basketball Association following his long tenure with the Celtics can best be described as tumultuous, he is now back in the groove, despite being benched multiple times during the regular season by coach Fred Hoiberg. The Game 1 os Bulls vs Celtics had the final result of Chicago Bulls win, 106-102. That ended up helping him get up to 33 total points in the game, and even though it wasn't enough to get the Celtics the victory, it was enough to keep them in the game until the closing seconds of the contest.

The Bulls got some huge performances out of their stars, including 30 points from Jimmy Butler, but the more important contributions came from their role players.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Golden State's Kevin Durant missed practice because of a strained left calf and is questionable for Wednesday's Game 2 against Portland, who again will be without center Jusuf Nurkic.

"You play the 82 games to learn a little bit about yourself", he said. When Wade was with the Miami Heat, Rondo's game prep frustrated him on numerous occasions during playoff matchups with the Celtics. 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. But Paul Zipser picked up the slack in Game 2, scoring 16 points in 29 minutes. "As a polished team we have to know when to take those shots and when not to".

Rondo finished with 14 assists, tying a Bulls franchise record for a postseason game, a record shared by several players, including Jordan.

According to head coach Brad Stevens, Thomas is expected to play in Game 2 tonight and then fly home to Washington for his sister's funeral and to be with his family.

He was much better in Game 2, going 6 for 12, including 2 of 5 from long range.
