Celtics' Thomas should be home with family, not playing

Also, the host team Celtics fans and the people of Boston can watch this Game 2 on CSN HD, TNT and Listen to 98.5 The Sports Hub.

Second-year forward Bobby Portis played a huge role in the Bulls' win by notching 19 points and nine rebounds on 8-of-10 shooting from the field.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 24 points and 15 rebounds for the Bucks. Have failed to score 100 points in three of their last four postseason games dating back to past year.

Thomas played very well in Game 1, and one expects him to come out with a fury in Game 2 as well.

"Everybody's putting in each work, watching film, working on their game", Butler said.

Although Chicago has a 2-0 lead, the series is far from over. But Boston was just 10 of 33 from 3-point range.

Wade then tossed in a running floater on Chicago's next possession to make it a 14-point game, and he canned another 3-pointer with 5:18 left on the clock to make it a 19-point game.




NOTES: Celtics G Avery Bradley was reportedly deciding whether or not he will accompany G Isaiah Thomas to Tacoma, Wash., on Wednesday for the funeral of Thomas' younger sister, Chyna.

"In the second half, the ball stopped moving", Bradley said, per Himmelsbach. The Isaiah Thomas is playing this Tuesday night match with a sad moment that his sister had passed away in a vehicle accident a day before the match.

The Bulls, 41-41 in the regular season, are attempting to become the sixth No. 8 seed to upset a No. 1 in the first round - and the first since the Philadelphia 76ers upset Chicago in the 2012 playoffs. That was one of a few lineup experiments from Brad Stevens, who has been resigned to throwing combinations at the wall and seeing what sticks.

"There's just stuff that we can clean up", Amir Johnson, center for the Celtics, tell ESPN.

Olynyk (41) during the third quarter in game one of the first round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs at TD Garden. Thomas, the second best free throw shooter in the league during the season, went an uncharacteristic 7-for-13 from the line, not that it mattered.

Dwyane Wade scored just 11 points on 12 shots in Game 1, and he hasn't looked like the same player that was a star for the Miami Heat. If Rondo delivers a similar performance, the eighth seed will likely improve to a 3-0 advantage in the series, which would spell serious trouble for his former team.
