NBA : Bulls, Celtics Return to Boston

The Chicago Bulls beat the Boston Celtics on the road in the first two games of their Eastern Conference playoff series, but the Celtics returned the favor in Chicago. Now, the two teams head back to Boston for Game 5 on Wednesday, with the series tied 2-2.

The Bulls had a great chance to go 3-0 in the series in Game 3, but they were thumped 104-87. The Bulls missed the injured Rajon Rondo, who was great in Games 1 and 2. His freak injury has turned the series around, as the Celtics won the two games that he missed.

The Celtics were dominated 52-37 on the glass in Game 3 and 44-41 in Game 4, which has been a trend for them. However, the rest of the team stepped up to help Isaiah Thomas. Al Horford has averaged 16.5 points per game over the last two, while Gerald Green had a career playoff high 18 points in Game 4.
The home team has yet to win in this series, but we’ll see if that changes in Game 5.
