Khris Middleton added 20 points for Milwaukee, who will seek to regain the series edge when they host Game Three on Thursday (Friday, Manila time).

The three were actually greeted by Celtics GM Danny Ainge after they left their press conference, exchanging pleasantries.

Isaiah Thomas took the floor to a deafening cheer for the Boston Celtics' playoff opener against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday night, just a day after his sister was killed in a auto accident.

It only feels that way because they're grabbing offensive rebounds at a ridiculous pace - 37.8 per cent - and coming away with points on possessions that would otherwise end with nothing. Even still, Horford's 6.8 rebounds per game ranked 45th overall in the National Basketball Association. The career villain has captured Chicago's heart, emerging as the consummate teammate and a major reason the Bulls beat the top-seeded Boston Celtics two straight games on a court Rondo knows well from nine seasons wearing green. It is easier said than done, and Rajon Rondo has been doing a phenomenal job of running the offense. "That's just who he is". I mean, I think we all do.

"I'm just trying to shoot it with confidence", said Lopez, who hit several midrange jumpers.

The Bulls, 41-41 in the regular season, are attempting to become the sixth No. 8 seed to upset a No. 1 in the first round - and the first since the Philadelphia 76ers upset Chicago in the 2012 play-offs. The Celtics trailed the Chicago Bulls 100-86 in the fourth quarter when Smart's emotions boiled over.

Those fans booed their team on more than one occasion on Tuesday, including a loud chorus of jeers as the final seconds ticked off. "One thing I learned about this team is through adverse situations, this team sticks together".

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

Thomas' comments, released in a team statement Wednesday, are his first public ones since 22-year-old Chyna Thomas died in a crash early Saturday outside of Tacoma, Washington.
