An eight seed has knocked off a one seed only five times in NBA history and I think only a couple since they moved to a seven game first round series. Chicago is poised to join that group.
Boston has to be scratching their head a little bit.
They might have been tight in the opener which could be understood but in the last game they did not win a single quarter.
I have always liked Brad Stevens as a coach but he is really up against it right now. He has to get his team some confidence some how but and I wonder what he is going to do because G2 was worse than game one.
Speaking of being worse in G2 Al Horford had a terrible game. He was probably their best player in G1 and might have been their worst the last time out.
That might be harsh as there is plenty of blame to go around really. Still he only scored 7 points.
Isaiah Thomas has to be better. I don’t think it is a the moment being too big more of a when your best player is his size and a team keys on him all game long it makes a difference. I wonder if they should bring him off the bench for a game. That would be dramatic.
A lack in production from featured scorers could be tolerated if the defense were performing well but it isn’t. 111 points is almost unheard of this time of year and the Bulls aren’t exactly the Warriors.
This is one of those situations where maybe it is better to be on the road but only time will tell. This team just has to start playing better, one quarter at a time.
The Bulls played a complete game in taking G2 of the series. They won every quarter and got amazing play from their veterans.
As he never seems to get his due lets start with Rajon Rondo. He was a rebound away from a triple-double and had five steals. He is still a flawed player but one who still contributes a lot.
Dwayne Wade was better in this one matching Jimmy Butler with a game high 22 points. He was efficient and made his deep shots, and didn’t have to play max minutes so he can be fresh for G3 too at home.
In G1 Bobby Portis was big but in G2 it was Paul Zipser. The Bulls are doing a good job riding the hot hand.
When you are going to win in an upset you need some expected production and Chicago is getting it.
Free Game 3 Boston Celtics vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
Zig zag theory was a bust in this one as not only did the Celtics not win or cover they got blown out. Will things normalize in G3. Hard to say. Boston is now an underdog though.
This is a very small number so best to bet it on who you think is going to win the game.
