22 April 2017

"We haven't done that all season, but this is the right time to do it", Butler told the Associated Press.

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.

The Chicago Bulls weren't given much of a chance at beating the Boston Celtics coming into this playoff series and rightfully so.

Treasury prices gained slightly with eyes on France and no major U.S. economic releases due to set market direction. Global benchmark Brent was more muted, rising 0.1 per cent to $53.04, heading for a 4.1 per cent weekly loss.

While Rondo's time in the National Basketball Association following his long tenure with the Celtics can best be described as tumultuous, he is now back in the groove, despite being benched multiple times during the regular season by coach Fred Hoiberg.

"But Isaiah is the one who I feel dealt with it the best". In that second group at that time it was Doug (McDermott), it was Niko (Mirotic), it was Denzel (Valentine) at times.

Boston lost the opener of the seven-game series 106-102 on Monday.

Brad Stevens has kept an eye on Rondo, whom he coached for parts of two seasons.

For instance, Boston has no one to guard Butler: Crowder is too big - Butler can beat him off the dribble - and Avery Bradley, as tenacious as he might be, is too small to stop James Buckets.
