Bulls beat top-seeded Celtics to take 2-0 series lead

Bulls beat top-seeded Celtics to take 2-0 series lead

It's amusing, isn't it? If you wanna be able to tell people to play their role, you gotta be able to play their role. And Brad Stevens, faced with his third straight first-round exit - this time with a team considered better than the last two - has once again discovered that playoff pressure increases on everyone, including coaches. Take this season for example.

Although James Harden is Houston's undisputed star, he can't top Russell Westbrook entirely on his own.

Game 2: Thunder at Rockets, 5 p.m. Butler, who had 22 points, eight rebounds and four steals, said the victory was no surprise to him. Also, he was ideal from the line that night, going 11-of-11 and hitting 16 of his 22 shots from the field. And I would say, and I'm sure this isn't very original, that that hope runs directly through Al Horford who is way too good a player to have done so little so far. It's hard to argue with his success. "I thought he impacted the game way, way more with his energy, his effort, his hustle, his loose balls, his offensive rebounding, keeping balls alive".

Stevens highlighted two areas of need to improve if the Celtics want to claw their way back against the Bulls: Their play in transition and rebounding. What Thomas didn't realize but he sure as hell is now- is that it takes more than 30 points scored to win in April.

Carson Park hosts annual Easter egg hunt
Around 45,000 eggs filled with candy were dropped from a helicopter to the delight of thousands of children in Canada on Saturday. Typically their Easter falls later than the mainstream Easter due to a different calendar, but for this year the dates line up.

Three individual agendas, one common goal. Butler also posted eight rebounds and eight assists. He also fittingly scored the game victor: a lay-up with:02 to go. Previous year I think he hit less than 10 threes during the regular season and then more than that in the first round of the playoffs. Well, the Bulls are coming home to the United Center for Game 3 on Friday night and Game 4 with a 2-0 series lead.

Free passes this time of the season have been revoked.

After an up and down year, in which the Bulls seemed to play their best against the top teams in the National Basketball Association, yet play down to the bad teams in the National Basketball Association, the Bulls will have to bring their best to upset the Celtics. Thomas played in both playoff games for the Celtics since the accident. You wanna hit it before the playoffs and I think we hit it before the playoffs. Now I get to experience it up close and personal, I f-- love it. His point differential was -20 in 42min. He responded with the single greatest performance ever in the playoffs.

Thunder: Roberson added 18 points with seven rebounds. The Lakers won the game 123-107, clinched the title and Magic was named Finals MVP.
