Bulls beat top-seeded Celtics to take 2-0 series lead

Chicago Bulls forward Jimmy Butler catches a pass high above Chicago Bulls guard Isaiah Canaan during the second quarter of a first-round NBA playoff basketball game in Boston Tuesday

Talk shows will have a field day. "I look at this as this momentum carries him and the Celtics".

The Bulls will still get more rebounds than the Celtics, but not THAT many more.

That's right. Rondo and MJ are the only two Chicago players to have such a game over the last 30 years. I was pretty aggressive (Game 1), but I got myself into some foul trouble.

Storms with tornadoes possible in Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana
The rain returns Friday, with rain and thunderstorms starting early in the day and lasting into the night, Krein said. The greatest, most widespread issue with these storms will be torrential rain and frequent lightning.

Maybe the best thing in Boston's favor at the moment is that the Bulls could turn into, well, the Bulls at any time.

Rondo finished with 14 assists, tying a Bulls franchise record for a postseason game, a record shared by several players, including Jordan. When Thomas hit his first points of the game, a 3-pointer, the TD Garden crowd cheered loudly with an ovation.

In Toronto, Kyle Lowry bounced back from a lackluster game one as the Raptors beat the Milwaukee Bucks 106-100 to level their series at one game each. He has played an average of six minutes more per game in the post-season than during the regular season, but his points and assists are both down.

While some might be shocked by how Chicago has played as a No. 8 seed that was just 41-41, Butler made it clear he's not one of those folks.

CommonHealth: Elon Musk Wants To Combine The Brain And Computers11:15

"One thing I learned about this team is through adverse situations, this team stuck together", Wade said nearly an exact month after he was believed to miss the rest of the season, contributing 22 points and four rebounds in Game 2. "He's playing with a lot of leadership out there", said Boston's Jae Crowder. Jae is a gamer and a victor. "So no matter what goes on we're always going have each other's back". Those little oddities can add up in a single game, and some regression in those areas will help the Celtics. Rajon, I thought, did a terrific job once we got the ball off the glass to push the ball down the floor and get our guys some good shots which led to some confidence.

Chicago picked up a win in the opening game in this series, which allowed them to steal home court advantage from the Celtics.

Bradley Beal scored 22 points and Markieff Morris had 21 points for the Wizards, who finished the regular season 49-33 and entered the play-offs as the No. 4 seed after not qualifying past year. Nobody is saying this is going to be easy.

That's an unacceptable number for any team, much less one that boasts three centers above 6-foot-10 and Amir Johnson, a 6-foot-9 bruiser who frequently plays the 5.
