Chicago Bulls: Takeaways From Game 2 Win Over Celtics

"He was just Pat tonight".

Rondo's words accompanying that picture, in which he strongly rebuked the decision by Wade and Butler to criticize teammates following a late-game collapse to the Hawks the night before, prompted a team meeting, fines and national negative attention.

The Bulls, who clawed their way to the eighth and final playoff spot in the East, are trying to become the first eighth seed to topple the top-ranked team in the opening round since the Philadelphia 76ers upset Chicago in 2012. He has totaled 52 points, 17 rebounds, 11 assists, five steals and three blocks so far this series. "We've talked a little bit last night and then again today (that) as he goes through it and if he feels like he needs to not (play) - then whatever he wants".

Beverley refused to take credit for slowing Westbrook down.

"We didn't even have to talk about it", Wade said to CSNChicago.com "Every team I've been on, we've hit adversity at some point". "He just seems like such a good kid, and obviously he's one of the great competitors we have in our league". Their 20 year-old point guard, Magic Johnson.

Blake Griffin scored 24 points. It gave them some rhythm and it hurt us.

Houston scored the next nine points, capped by consecutive 3-pointers by Beverley to make it 73-64 midway through the period.

"Jae said it best".

In other matches, the Los Angeles Clippers stopped the Utah Jazz, 99-91, in LA while the Toronto Raptors held off the Milwaukee Bucks, 106-100, in Toronto to even their respective series at one game apiece. But Paul Zipser picked up the slack in Game 2, scoring 16 points in 29 minutes.

Harden made a pair of free throws to cap the third quarter and leave Houston up 89-74 entering the fourth.

In the regular season, the Chicago Bulls finished with an offensive rating of 107.4, 20th out of 30 teams.

The Rockets led 59-54 at halftime. He pumped in 42 points with 15 rebounds and seven assists. "We just had to play".

While Wade and Butler are the Bulls go to guys, they will need legitimate contributions from role players, which they got in their game one win. "If we don't rebound, we don't win the series".

"It's just who he is, he's a fighter, a competitor, and I knew he wasn't going to satisfied with the way he played in the first game". And while it's that special time of year in which Rajon Rondo strings together a few decent games to get somebody to hire him next season, he's really not this good any more and that may start to matter, too.
