NBA : Celtics Host Bulls, All Tied at 2-2

Are the Chicago Bulls toast without Rajon Rondo? Just when it looked like Chicago was ready to bounce the Boston Celtics from the first round, Rondo broke his thumb, and the Celtics won twice in Chicago to knot their series at two games apiece. Game 5 is back at the Garden this Wednesday on TNT, tip-off time to be determined.

The Bulls have rarely been at full strength this season, but they were in good health going into the playoffs, and they stunned the Celtics on their own parquet with a pair of upset victories. Games 3 and 4 without Rondo were quite the opposite – Boston won both by comfortable margins to cash in as small road favourites.

Only one Chicago player finished in plus territory during Game 4, and he might be their last shot at winning this series. Fourth-string point guard Isaiah Cannan got to play 34 minutes after Jerian Grant was given the quick hook and Michael Carter-Williams proved ineffective. Cannan was a plus-11 on the day, sinking three of his seven trey attempts and picking up a pair of steals. The rest of the Bulls shot 2-of-14 from downtown.

It might be up to fourth-string point guard Isaiah Cannan to save Chicago’s bacon. With Rondo injured and both Jerian Grant and Michael Carter-Williams proving ineffective, Cannan played 34 minutes in Game 4 on Sunday and finished at plus-11, making him the only Bulls player in positive territory.
