Celtics' Isaiah Thomas: Days since sister died hardest of my life


With all these wonderful revelations, here are three things that National Basketball Association enthusiasts have learned so far in this year's postseason action.

However, the Bulls' upset plans took a major hit this morning when the team announced that Rondo will be out indefinitely with a right thumb fracture. It has been most notable on the offensive end as Chicago has made the Celtics pay.

During the regular season the Bulls were not unstoppable. He said "yes", before talking about team chemistry and emphasizing that it takes time for this to happen, especially for the Bulls who had a major roster shakeup this season. We make it tough on them, we give ourselves a chance, by rebounding the ball, by not having too many turnovers, executing on our own, knowing that they're a tough defensive team.

Rondo has been magnificent both as the floor general and voice of the Bulls' huddle in the first two games. Chicago's win also snapped the Celtics' six-game winning streak in such games.

However, in their last 15 games, the three superstars showed why they shouldn't be taken so lightly. They have to know that their season and the hard-earned No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference are about to go up in flames. Consequently, the Celtics still have a shot to win this series. Not to mention, Thomas only averages 2.7 rebounds a game.


Thomas also called this "without question, the hardest week of my life", since Chyna died in a one-vehicle auto accident in their home state of Washington on Saturday, a day before the Celtics tipped off against the Chicago Bulls in the National Basketball Association playoffs. You've got to do other things. Chicago completed their goal to say the least. These two games, obviously it's great to be up 2-0.

Consider: Bulls guard Dwyane Wade has never been on a team that blew a 2-0 series lead (Wade and the Miami Heat were 12-0 in such spots), and the Celtics are 1-16 all-time in series where they lost the first two games. The Bulls are +22 in terms of rebounding this series, a vulnerability of the Celtics and a strength of Chicago. It is appearing to be a task that not even Thomas can complete. Brad Stevens' adjustment to Rondo's playmaking will dictate how the series goes.

The Celtics-Bulls game is the first of three Game 3s on Friday night.

You can watch Celtics vs Bulls Game 3 on FuboTV live online. In Game 2, Rondo had 11 points, 14 assists, 9 rebounds and 5 steals - just one rebound shy of becoming the team's first player since Scottie Pippen (1997) to get a postseason triple-double.

Can the Celtics cut Chicago's lead? If Rondo isn't able to make it back, the Bulls may not have enough fire power to keep Boston down.
