The Boston Celtics looked like a different team from the one that lost the first two playoff game to Chicago. The C's hammered the Bulls 108-87 Friday night to get back in the series.

Chicago still leads the series 2-1 with game four set for Sunday night.

In game three, the Celts got help from a lot of different players - Isaiah Thomas scored 16 points in just 31 minutes of play but handed out nine assists.

Al Horford had 18 points, eight rebounds and six assists. Jae Crowder had 16, Avery Bradley added 15. Terry Rozier scored 11 off the bench.

The C's were 17-for-37 (46%) shooting three-pointers.

And, the Bulls were without point guard Rajon Rondo, out with a fractured thumb. The Bulls offense was not nearly as smooth as it was in the first two games.
