Boston Celtics Need Extreme Wakeup Call After Game 2 Loss to Bulls
"You play the 82 games to learn a little bit about yourself", he said.
Chicago Bulls swatted aside the top-seeded Boston Celtics 111-97 on Tuesday night at TD Garden for the second time off the back of a dogged team effort.
The Celtics know what they did wrong Sunday and what has to be done Tuesday night - a loss meaning they would be down 0-2 heading to Chicago. It appeared as if Boston was well on its way to tying up the first-round series, but then Rondo was able to pull the momentum into Chicago's favor.
The Bulls look like a team capable of winning the East (they get the Wizards-Hawks victor if they finish off Boston) and we'll just leave this here: the Bulls were 4-0 vs. the Cavaliers this season. "I thought his pace was terrific".
"And we did the same thing when we played - to Derrick Rose". Rajon, I thought, did a terrific job once we got the ball off the glass to push the ball down the floor and get our guys some good shots which led to some confidence. Boston got outrebounded 53-36 while allowing 20 offensive boards leading to 23 second-chance points.
But it hasn't been Rondo for a long time. With that said, if their numbers are similar to the bigs, the C's have a problem.
DeRozan scored 12 points in the first and Antetokounmpo made just one of six field goal attempts in the opening quarter as Toronto led 28-25. Since steals became an official statistic in 1973-74, the only players with three such games are Rondo and Jordan. Bobby Portis was the star of the show in that regard, scoring 19 points and hauling down nine rebounds as he came into the game off of the bench.
"That's how you win games, when it's a whole team involved".
Given the tragedy Thomas suffered before Game 1 it's testament to the guard's fortitude that he is even playing this series. On March 16, an announcement on Dwyane Wade's fractured elbow would sideline him for the rest of the season. And I'm playing plus minutes. "He messes up your first option and then he knows the second option. We just had to play". In '11, Wade's Heat team took care of the Celtics, 4-1, in the Eastern semis.
