Horford, Thomas lead Celtics over Bulls 104-87 in Game 3

With the series tied 2-2, Game 4 is Sunday in Chicago and it will prove to be a crucial game for both teams with the victor having momentum going forward in the series. Even though the Celtics seem to be mired in a sizable slump, the Wizards would still likely prefer to square off with the Bulls, seeing as they went 3-1 versus Hoiberg's squad (all three wins were by more than 15 points). "I feel we have a really good team".

Chicago holds a 2-0 series lead, becoming just the second number eight seed in history to steal the first two games against top-ranked opponents.

This is the 16 best-of-seven playoff series all-time in which the Bulls have led 2-0; the Bulls won 14 of the previous 15 such series, with their only series loss coming versus the Wizards in the Eastern Conference 2005 First Round. He scored eight points in the third quarter, helping the Celtics regain control.

Thomas, who left Boston after Game 2 and spent time with his family in Washington State in the wake of his sister's death in a traffic accident last Saturday, rejoined the Celtics in Chicago. "I guess he was so deep into our bench, it looked maybe whatever may have happened", said Rondo, who was part of Boston's 2008 championship team. Oklahoma City star Russell Westbrook finished the game with 32 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists.

Butler can't be ice cold for three quarters of any game in this series and still hope to come away with a win. The game will also be streamed online, via WatchESPN, free with a cable subscription.

The Celtics did the bulk of their damage from 3-point range. Our young guys will come in next game and be better, but we can't look to replace what Rondo brings.

Butler averaged a career-high 5.5 assists this season, and even though he had none in Game 3, he relishes playing point guard. The Celtics scored just nine points in the first 10 minutes of the second quarter as the Bulls cut the lead down to six.

"Yeah, we're confident in Jerian, " coach Fred Hoiberg said.

"We're not going to put this all on missing Rondo because he might not show up", Wade said. First and foremost, Avery Bradley was all over Jimmy Butler like carbon dioxide smothering a grease fire for most of Game 3.

The Celtics maintained their lead by hitting 17 3-point field goals. He will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days, nearly certainly indicating that Rondo will miss the remainder of the first round series against the Boston Celtics. "The biggest thing is going out and continuing to get it done on the defensive end".

The Thunder blew a double-digit lead in the second half of Game 2, and barely hung on this time.
