Bulls guard Rajon Rondo out indefinitely with broken thumb

Grant shot nearly 37 percent from 3 and is okay defensively - he's not a particularly good decision-maker as a point guard, but playing next to Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade, he shouldn't have to do as much as a normal floor general.

1993 - #8 Los Angeles Lakers led the #1 Phoenix Suns 2-0. "When we played against Boston back in the day, he knew all the plays". Now, Ainge is hoping the Celtics can find the same levity those Suns did.

Talking before the team practiced at United Center on Thursday, Smart apologized for his actions. Dwyane Wade, a poor three-point shooter for his entire career, is making 67 percent of his shots from behind the arc. The away team has obviously won both postseason games.

Rondo is averaging 11 points per game, 8.5 rebounds per game and 10 assists per game in the playoffs so far and almost had a triple-double in Game 2. "We can't panic. We've been here before".

Grant is inconsistent, but if good Grant shows up, it's in Chicago's best interest to just play it straight. With the Bulls coming into the new season with a team they weren't sure what they'd get from, and a coach possibly on the hot seat, this has been a pleasant surprise. He suffered the injury in Game 2 against the Celtics.

So far, this has been the most exciting and surprising series of the first round. It's the type of "mismatch" basketball Brad Stevens would prefer the Bulls play. The score indicated the game was much closer than it actually was as the Wizards took a large lead out of the third quarter and never looked back.

You all know how the Mavericks did this season - not well. I feel like that's how it was last game.

There are plenty of other problems for Oklahoma City - the Thunder fall apart when Westbrook rests, the team has struggled to keep James Harden off the foul line, Steven Adams' foul trouble crippled their interior defense in Game 2 and they are stretched thin chasing Houston's numerous perimeter threats. We've still got to go out there. He is averaging six rebounds in the two games and has been one of OKC's better defenders. There's no question about it. I think going to Seattle was a good thing.

"I'm just out there playing", Oladipo said. We're expected to win. They've found a formula that works against the Celtics. Even as the top seed entering the playoffs, the team found motivation in those that suggested they were the worst top seed in recent memory.

But the 0-2 hole might allow the Celtics to once again embrace that underdog mentality.

"Obviously, [Stevens] has a lot of trust in me", Green said. "It'll be like familiar ground for us to come out where everything is against us, to come out and prevail".
