Not only that, but Chicago received another big assist from a bench player.
"We were so locked in all week", said Butler, who also pulled down nine rebounds as the Bulls capitalised on their size advantage and controlled the inside. On Tuesday, he had 11 points, 14 assists, nine rebounds and five steals. "And that's where your confidence always comes from". The Bulls had control of the game by dominating on the offensive glass, beating the Celtics in rebounds 43-38. Sure, Thomas did not have to go against the Chicago Bulls, but this is what his team and teammates have worked for the entire 82-game regular season. He scored 20 points but was just 6 of 15 from the floor, including 1 of 5 from 3-point range. Bobby Portis finished with 19 for the Bulls.
SAN ANTONIO - Kawhi Leonard had a postseason career-high 37 points and added 11 rebounds and San Antonio beat Memphis to take a 2-0 lead in the first-round series.
Ownership structure of new hospital 'completely wrong'
The build could only be used for the defined goal of providing public maternity, gynaecological and neonatal services, he said. I have heard that nuns will be gifted the hospital.
"Hated him, hated him, as a competitor", Wade said of Rondo after Game 2 Tuesday night. The Bulls must not lose focus in Game 3 as momentum can shift quickly. Paul Zipser was the man for Chicago during Game 2. I have a tough task chasing (Isaiah Thomas) all over the court. Avery Bradley and Isaiah Thomas are small guards, so it's not their fault if they don't get a lot of rebounds. We needed it. We needed an injection of pace into that first lineup, and he did an unbelievable job in the most critical time of the year of getting us to play the way that we needed to play. "It's just who he is, he's a fighter, a competitor, and I knew he wasn't going to satisfied with the way he played in the first game".
He scored 22 points as well as the clinching basket with 10 seconds remaining at home to the Bucks, while DeRozan had 23 points of his own. We have the unit to go to Chicago and take Game 3.
On the Bulls' side of the ledger, another strong game from Butler would obviously be helpful to their cause, but two more of their key players will also be needed to get them over the top.
California Roads Bill Would Limit Truck Pollution Mandates
Taxes on gasoline and diesel fuel built the interstate highway system and California's state and local transportation networks. SB 132 is expected to be heard in the state Senate again after the state Legislature returns from Spring Recess April 17.

Game 1: Butler scored 15 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter - including 10 straight - and Robin Lopez hauled in eight of Chicago's 20 offensive rebounds. Those numbers helped Chicago open up a 12-point lead during the first period. Jordan's tomahawk jam put an exclamation on the end of the period.
"But all we did was win one game".
