Bulls Take on Celtics in Playoffs

20 April, 2017

Kyle Lowry scored 22 points, including the clinching basket with less than 10 seconds to play, and the Toronto Raptors beat the Milwaukee Bucks 106-100 on Tuesday night, evening their first-round playoff series at 1-1.

BOSTON -? Celtics coach Brad Stevens said that if guard Marcus Smart did indeed make an obscene gesture toward a fan during Tuesday's Game 2 loss to the Chicago Bulls, his actions were "unacceptable" and Stevens expects the league will investigate the matter. The Celtics are now in the National Basketball Association playoffs, but Thomas has reportedly chose to attend Chyna's funeral in between games two and three of the series against the Chicago Bulls. In Game 2, he just missed a triple-double with 11 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds. Rondo was also suspended for a game by the team earlier in the year, and he was in and out of the rotation this season. It's key when you have a point guard like him that controls the whole game- you just have to play. "Tonight, our job was easy".

Smart just hung his head while waiting for a Bulls player to shoot free throws. "I'm sure Bobby told you the same thing". The 35-year-old Wade is coming off a 22-point performance in which he scored 16 in the second half.

Then came the infamous Wade-Butler locker room critique of some of the young players' desire to win after the Bulls blew a big fourth quarter lead at home against Atlanta on January 25, followed by Rondo's Instagram post calling out the lack of leadership from the Bulls' two stars.

Their star, Isaiah Thomas, lost his 22-year-old sister, Chyna, in a vehicle accident the day before the playoffs started. They didn't pay to get a player such as Lou Williams, a proven bench scorer who would help Boston survive when Isaiah Thomas isn't on the floor.

"We've obviously moved past what happened", Hoiberg said. "There's a taste in your mouth when you go on one of those spurts, something you try to get back. That's the game. That's the series", Crowder said. Game 3 of the series is on Friday.

"I hated him", Wade said.

"It's just who he is, he's a fighter, a competitor, and I knew he wasn't going to satisfied with the way he played in the first game".

The Jazz never led in the game and got no closer than six points in the fourth.

An ankle injury kept Los Angeles Lakers center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar out of the lineup of Game 6 of the 1980 NBA Finals at Philadelphia. Thomas has been able to exploit the brief mismatch before his defender recovers for the screen at times, but when he's held in check for a couple seconds, Chicago's defence gets back in place.

Griffin took a page out of Paul's repertoire and buried a 3-pointer from the left corner, extending the Clippers' lead to 97-88 with 1:35 to play. Barkley led the Suns to a 120-114 victory by pouring in 43 points, pulling 15 rebounds and handing out 10 assists.
