Despite getting booed, Rajon Rondo says Celtics fans 'are great'

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

Suddenly, a Boston Celtics team not known for giving up in any game have to find a way to claw back in a seven game series they have yet to show up in both physically and emotionally.

Chicago is the first No. 8 seed to take a 2-0 lead in a first-round series - and the Bulls did it on the road. "Everybody's putting in extra work, watching that film, working on their game". "I've seen him in the trenches before, and he's always bounced back".

LeBron James paid tribute to Isaiah Thomas on Monday, offering his condolences to the grieving Boston Celtics star following the death of his sister in a vehicle crash at the weekend.

Rondo also produced five steals and three blocked shots.

Robin Lopez was spectacular again on the offensive glass and raining in jumpers, as he finished with 18 points. Our job was easy. But I think obviously we're going to have to play more purposeful offense that will help our defense. "As a polished team we have to know when to take those shots and when not to".

"But all we did was win one game".

"I don't know what it is". "One thing I learned about this team is through adverse situations, this team sticks together".

Although the eighth-seeded Bulls are up 2-0 to the first-seeded Celtics, this isn't as big of an upset as it appears. Those fans booed their team on more than one occasion Tuesday, including a loud chorus as the final seconds ticked off.

"I thought he was the key early in the game as far as getting us up the floor", added Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg.

San Antonio led for all but 13 seconds in winning its 10th consecutive postseason game over Memphis.

Butler added eight rebounds and eight assists.

There were doubts about Rajon Rondo and Dwyane Wade during the regular season and whether they could lead the Bulls.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 24 points and 15 rebounds for the Bucks. Khris Middleton scored 20 points and Greg Monroe had 18. Although Rondo and Wade are towards the back half of their careers, their experience has proven to be a vital part in the first two games of the series in Boston. He was a minus-20. Rondo's night ended with 11 points and 14 assists on a night when all five Bulls starters reached double figures. "So there's some guys that can do that, and we're fortunate to have one of them".

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

Chyna Thomas died Saturday morning in a tragic vehicle accident, near Tacoma, Washington.

Prior to Game 1, Thomas was extremely emotional and was crying during the pregame ceremonies.

His coach Brad Stevens gave Thomas the option of playing or missing the first game or two of the playoffs to be with his family. Bobby Portis was huge off the bench, contributing 19 including two clutch 3s late in the fourth quarter.
