NBA Playoffs Round 1: Chicago Bulls Swat Away Boston Celtics for a 2-0 Series Lead

Chicago Bulls Do the Impossible, Beats Boston Celtics in Boston Twice for a 2-0 Series Lead

Jimmy Butler comes up big for the Chicago Bulls, scoring 22 points along with Rajon Rondo being one rebound shy of a triple-double in their 111-97 win over the Boston Celtics. The No. 8 seed have managed to beat the Celtics twice in a row on their home court, which was highly unpredicted.

Dwayne Wade also had 22 points in addition to Robin Lopez’s 18 points. The Bulls had control of the game by dominating on the offensive glass, beating the Celtics in rebounds 43-38.

Butler had a huge block on Isaiah Thomas’ lay-up, spiking it away like he was at a volleyball game, making Thomas fall on his back in the process. Thomas ended the game with 20 points.

Apparently, being the first seed means nothing because the Bulls have been manhandling the Celtics all series long. If the Celtics don’t get their acts together and start coming out with some big plays and a win, the future in the post-season is definitely a little shaky for them.

Game 3 will be held in Chicago. Will the Celtics be able to win on the Bulls’ home court for some revenge? We will find out.

Series: 2-0 Chicago
