From losing their the first two games of the series at home to being on the brink of eliminating the Chicago Bulls, welcome to the NBA Playoffs Boston Celtics. Last night’s 108-97 win gives the C’s a 3-2 lead in the series.
Game 6 is Friday night in Chicago.
After a slow start, the Celts got going late in the first quarter but could never really put away the Bulls until a 13-0 run in the fourth quarter.
Avery Bradley was great on offense and defense. He scored 24 points.
Isaiah Thomas also scored 24 despite a tough night shooting(1-for-10 shooting 3s). As a team the C’s were only 9-for-40 shooting three-pointers.
Al Horford was solid as well, 21 points, seven rebounds and nine assists.
Dwayne Wade had 26 to lead the Bulls.
The Celtics can wrap up the series Friday night. If not, game 7 is back in Boston Sunday afternoon.
