Chicago Bulls accomplish rare feat with win over Boston Celtics

Rondo tied the franchise playoff record with 14 assists and just missed joining Scottie Pippen as the only Bull to triple-double in the playoffs. Dwyane Wade had 22 points, including 16 in the second half, and Robin Lopez added 18 points and eight points.

The Celtics were outhustled in the offensive glass in both games, and fell behind by double digits early in Game 2.

The Chicago Bulls stole Game 1 of their first-round matchup against the Boston Celtics on the road with a 106-102 victory on Sunday. Isaiah Thomas put up 33 points and six assists, playing a day after his sister was killed in a auto accident.

Isaiah Thomas, who will fly to Tacoma, Wash., on Wednesday to attend the funeral for his younger sister, Chyna, who was killed in an automobile crash, had an off night.

Chyna Thomas died Saturday morning in a tragic vehicle accident, near Tacoma, Washington. Stevens further stated that Thomas' previous play just goes to show that he is an incredible player not just in Boston but in the league.

As for the trials and tribulations Rondo's encountered the last few years, Stevens said, "Obviously with a guy that's achieved and accomplished as much as he has on the court, everybody's going to certainly scrutinize when things don't go well". Butler finished with 30 points.

Isaiah Thomas led the Celtics with 20 points while Jae Crowder chipped in with 16.

"We're like this", Jimmy Butler said, balling up his fist to show the team's tightness after a regular season with occasional fractures. "It's one game at a time, one possession at a time". The Celtics have the lowest number of wins by a No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference since 2007, when the Detroit Pistons mirrored the Celtics' 53 wins. Since steals became an official statistic in 1973-74, the only players with three such games are Rondo and Jordan.

I'm sure I'm leaving someone out, " Wade said. Gordon Hayward had a team-high 20 points for the Jazz, who head home for Game 3 on Friday.

Horford had 19 points, eight assists and seven rebounds.

Chicago hauled down an fantastic 20 offensive rebounds to win for the eighth time in its last 11 games.

However, after two games, they have a 2-0 lead and now seemingly have everything to gain.
