Are the Boston Celtics in Trouble if Rajon Rondo Returns?

Are the Boston Celtics in Trouble if Rajon Rondo Returns?

However, Rondo set social media buzzing after apparently sticking out his leg while Celtics forward Jae Crowder passed by the Bulls bench after making a triple.

Speaking for the first time since his sister, Chyna, died on April 15 in a single-vehicle auto crash, the Boston Celtics star said he is thankful for the support of his teammates.

"We needed something different and he picked it up", Wade said. Have you seen this series?

"Mentally and emotionally, I'm not here, so I just feed off what the guys give me", Thomas said during his postgame press conference, according to ESPN's Chris Forsberg.

The Bulls made a third-quarter push for the second consecutive game, but fell short again, leaving the home team winless in the series.

The Cleveland Cavaliers just accomplished what a true top seed does in the first round of the NBA Playoffs by dismantling the Indiana Pacers in four games. They had a rating of 120.8 in Game 2 along with 28 team-assists. He played with a dislocated elbow during a playoff series against the Miami Heat in 2011, and played the fourth quarter of a game in 2013 with a torn ACL in his right knee, two days before the injury was diagnosed.

The offense isn't the only thing the Bulls have been slacking on.

"Even [in Game 3] I felt [Thomas] was great". In Game 6 on Sunday afternoon, Ottawa ultimately found the back of the net first with a power-play goal by Clarke MacArthur.

The Chicago Bulls will try to take the series lead back when they take on the Boston Celtics in Game 5 on Wednesday night, and we now know when the game will get underway in Boston. Thomas scored 10 points in part of their 12-0 run to regain the lead.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg, however, took exception to Thomas' offensive style and claimed that he regularly gets away with carrying the basketball.

"Just like last game, we were using a lot of energy just to come back", Wade said.

Can Butler gauge the team's confidence level without Rondo?

Rondo has played through serious injuries before when he was a member of the Celtics.

For the second straight day, Rajon Rondo created a stir in the pre-practice portion open to reporters.

"[The Celtics have] been really important", said Thomas. "When you're allowed to discontinue your dribble on every possession, he's impossible to guard". "Especially someone who wants to win as bad as he does, that studies the game and wants to do well by everybody like he does". Game 4 is Sunday in Chicago. The end of the third quarter was an indicator of why the Bulls would struggle against the Celtics.

The Bulls said Rondo underwent a subsequent exam and X-rays confirmed the thumb fracture.
