Bulls' Rondo fined for attempting to trip Celtics' Crowder

Bulls' Rondo fined for attempting to trip Celtics' Crowder

He's still part of this Celtics family. Chicago have outmatched and outsmarted the Celtics in the first two games and will look to continue that trend at home.

A smiling Thomas helped shift the mood in the locker room. Players weren't certain how to act or how best to comfort Thomas after he elected to stay with the team for Games 1 and 2 in Boston. Boston has a 1-12 best-of-seven series record all-time when trailing 2-0, with its only such series win coming against the Lakers in the 1969 NBA Finals (won the series in seven games). He flew to Chicago and joined the team Thursday night.

Durant questionable • Kevin Durant participated in a light practice with the Golden State Warriors and was still listed as questionable to play in Saturday's Game 3 of the playoffs at Portland because of a strained left calf.

But the Celtics, rocked this week by the death of star Isaiah Thomas' sister, Chyna, in a one-car accident, responded as the series shifted to Chicago. "The doctors told me a couple weeks, but we'll see how it goes", Rondo told reporters after Friday's defeat, via ESPN. Rondo will wear a cast to stabilize a previous wrist injury and will be re-evaluated next week when the cast is removed. We looked like a team that wasn't soaking the moment.

Added center Al Horford: "I thought Isaiah was great". For him to go out of his way to send us a message like that, that means a lot to all of us.

"It's hard to go 3-and-0 on any team", Carter-Williams said. The tenor of this series already had begun shifting Friday morning, when the Bulls announced that Rajon Rondo would be out indefinitely with a fractured thumb.

The blasts have come ahead of the visit of Pope Francis to Egypt on April 28-29, and prompted worldwide condemnation. The attacks were claimed by Daesh, and the group has threatened more attacks against Egypt's Christian minority.

That Thomas even took the floor Friday night was impressive in its own right.

"We'll miss his overall game and versatility", Hoiberg said before tip-off. That will happen when the two you've got finish the game shooting a combined 3-for-10 with three assists and seven turnovers.

Boston pulled away in the fourth, building a 17-point lead keyed by an Avery Bradley three-pointer and back-to-back buckets by Jonas Jerebko. Dwyane Wade led the team in scoring with 18 points, Jimmy Butler had 14 points while Robin Lopez chipped in with 12 points, but it was evident right from the tipoff that the Bulls weren't almost as unsafe without Rondo at the point. "The biggest thing is going out and continuing to get it done on the defensive end". I stretched my leg out; I also do that throughout the game.

Boston shuffled the starting lineup, swapping out Gerald Green for Amir Johnson.

DeAndre Jordan had 17 points and 13 rebounds for the Clippers, who played without the injured Blake Griffin in the second half. The fog isn't going to just disappear, and Stevens acknowledged that Thomas will still have moments that are hard as he copes. He has played hurt many times in his career, including a spectacular game as a Boston Celtic when he dislocated his elbow and still finished the game. They're back at the United Center.
