Celtics down 2-0, and Boston needs another comeback story

It is occasionally possible to play through a thumb fracture, as Boston guard Avery Bradley did in 2015, but even most thumb fractures like Rondo's that don't req. It's down two games to zero against a Chicago team that barely made the NBA Playoffs and seemingly nearly fired its coach multiple times, and the blame for Boston's woes has predictably shifted onto its boy-wonder coach, Brad Stevens.

This is a - no pun intended here - bad break for the Chicago Bulls, who are up 2-0 over the Boston Celtics in their first round playoff series.

The team announced the injury on Friday, hours before the Bulls host the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series.

Game 2: Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade scored 22 points apiece and Rajon Rondo almost posted a triple-double with 11 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds. However, Wade returned just in time for the playoffs and helped the Bulls take a 2-0 lead over the Boston Celtics.

Not just some silly stunt, New Worlds has been brewing since early 2013 when Murray and Vogler met on a flight from Berlin to NY . The project dates back to early 2013, when Vogler and Murray were sitting across from each other on a flight from Berlin to NY .

Hoiberg said Rondo was injured swiping for the ball in the third quarter of Game 2.

He is expected to rejoin the team Friday for Game 3 in Chicago.

This is the second injury that Rondo has dealt with over the last month. All season, the Celtics, led by point guard Isaiah Thomas and a great defense, have been one of the best teams in the National Basketball Association and were even able to secure the top overall seed in the East for the playoffs. It's unclear how things will play out now that Rondo has been declared out indefinitely with a broken thumb, but Thomas isn't exactly primed for a defensive turnaround. For as great as James Harden, Patrick Beverley, Lou Williams and Eric Gordon were for Houston in the first two games, Nene deserves a big tip of the cap as well. Brad Stevens' adjustment to Rondo's playmaking will dictate how the series goes.

"Before the game, Jimmy and D-Wade kept telling me to shoot and stay aggressive".

Not moving any of their picks or young players at the deadline was a reasonable decision, and at the time a defensible one.

Donovan said the 6-foot-4 Oladipo has been solid overall.

"You can't exhale thinking 'Oh, we're going home, we're going to be OK, '" Jazz forward Joe Johnson said.

With Rondo healthy, I'd give Chicago a 65-70 percent chance to win the series.

The main driver for that move, said strategists, was a weaker dollar and the pricing out of the bet that the U.S. Trump administration's plan for a major tax overhaul is getting bogged down, officials admit. .

Lowry scored 22 points, including the clinching basket with less than 10 seconds to play, and Toronto beat the Milwaukee Bucks 106-100 on Tuesday night, evening their first-round playoff series at 1-1. But they were too good in the regular season to be eliminated from the playoffs without any kind of a fight.
