Boston Celtics Win Game 5 And Head To Chicago With The Chance To Move On
The Chicago Bulls and the Bostons Celtics have been point with each other since the start of the first round of the NBA playoffs. The Bulls managed to win the first two games making it look like the Celtics would soon be out, but the Celtics now are up 3-2 in the series fate a 108-97 victory against the Bulls last night with Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley combining for a total of 48 points. They played hard and with a bunch of pride as the Bulls struggled to climb back to the top.
The Bulls do have a great unit for an eighth-seeded team in the Eastern Conference. Jimmy Butler and Dwayne Wade have been hard to deal with. Isaiah Thomas has been able to help Boston overcome Wade and Butler through how he handles the ball. Plus with other key contributors like Avery Bradley, Amir Johnson, and Al Horford, the Celtics have been able to shoot the ball well from three and from mid-range.
With all of this being said, the Celtics will need to keep pushing as they head into game 6. Coach Brad Stevens definitely has built a solid young squad who can play together as a team, but they need to keep the Bulls on their heals with some tough defense in their next game.
