With Rajon Rondo sidelined, Celtics humble Bulls in Game 3

With Rajon Rondo sidelined, Celtics humble Bulls in Game 3

Crowder jawed at the Bulls' bench after hitting a jumper and Rondo extended his leg as he walked by.

The Celtics pulled away after a 20-point lead shrunk to one early in the third quarter and put themselves in position to tie the series just as it was getting away from them.

The Bulls guard has been slapped with a $25,000 fine, Kiki VanDeWeghe, the league's executive VP of basketball operations, announced Sunday. "I always do that", Rondo said. Chicago turned the ball over 18 times and had only 14 assists (compared to Boston's 34) and the offensive woes - coupled with the Bulls' defensive issues - all added up to the 17-point loss. "If that's the case, we might as well not show up anymore because it looks like we're going to be missing him for a while".

Ofcom to force BT to open up tunnels and poles
Ofcom is also considering changes to how BT handles drop wires, the final connection between a pole (or duct) and the customer. Ofcom is proposing that other telecom providers should be able to lay fiber using BT's ducts and poles as easily as BT itself.

Rondo is expected to miss the rest of the series with a broken right thumb after being a key to the Bulls taking a 2-0 lead by stealing two wins in Boston last week, averaging a near triple-double. He accordingly boosted the minutes of second-year off-guard Terry Rozier and well-traveled swingman Gerald Green, elevating Green to a starting nod (and demoting Johnson).

"You've got a guy who has been in so many playoff series, been to the Finals, won a championship - you can't replace that, " Wade said. "We need to come out as a team and figure out how to be better". "One thing Rondo did before he went out is help us win two games on the road".

"When you tear an ACL, your leg gets stiff every once in awhile". I stretch my leg out throughout the game... But it will require coach Fred Hoiberg to make bold adjustments before Game 4 he wouldn't ordinarily made during the regular season. "I guess he was so deep into our bench, it looked maybe whatever may have happened".
