Lowry bounces back, Raptors edge Bucks to even series at 1-1

Utah Jazz's Joe Johnson center loses the ball as he is pressured by Los Angeles Clippers' Raymond Felton right and Blake Griffin during the first half in Game 2 of an NBA basketball first-round playoff series Tuesday

Don Chaney and Bob Weiss were 2-9. But Stevens can only pull so many players from a bench that consists of rookie and second-year players in Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier. Amir Johnson is capable, as is Tyler Zeller to a degree, but having either on the floor limits the floor spacing and what Boston want to accomplish on offence. Marcus Smart, while a good playmaker, has been dared to shoot and his shortcomings as a marksman have been magnified.

Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas said Wednesday that friends, family and fans had helped him through "the hardest week of my life" after his sister, Chyna, died in a road accident.

After dropping Games 1 and 2 at home to the Chicago Bulls, Celtics Nation has every reason to question all the above when it comes to the Green Team. "The best thing is, we went through the adverse situation". Game 3 is in Chicago on Friday.

"I mean, I expect it from Wade, right?" Like, this is who he is.

Those of us who believed the Bulls would have been better off trading Rondo around midseason regret the impulse.

"I played on so many teams, man". And then Butler's Butler. That rubs off on all the other guys.

A wild season looks to have a few more twists and turns in store for this Bulls squad. He's clearly one of the brightest minds in the game.

Judge halts Arkansas plan to execute 8 inmates in 11 days
The executions are scheduled to begin Monday, April 17, and run through Thursday, April 27. Asa Hutchinson, said in a statement.

In a hallway, they exchanged handslaps, not unlike the picture Rondo posted to his Instagram account on January 26 of him with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce from their shared Celtics championship season.

They were prepared to take a 2-0 lead. "So our mentality is try to get out and get some easy ones and put some pressure on them". At the end of the day, this is what we're built for. We're getting better, still as the season went on.

Bulls: Nikola Mirotic finished with 13 points and seven rebounds.

"He played a very, very good game", Donavan said. "If we don't rebound, we don't win the series". "But as a team we have to stay together".

A bad mix of lack of size, playmaking and rebounding that was always limiting the Celtics' ceiling, but now it's threatening to stop them dead in the tracks, keeping them from making any progress at the time of the year when it matters. "I think it's just God disguised as Michael Jordan". "We just have to go back to the drawing board and figure it out before Game 2".

Stevens is not on the hot seat.

Dwyane Wade had 22 points, including 16 in the second half, and Robin Lopez added 18 points and eight points. We haven't seen him play like that in a long, long time. "We have the ability to rattle some (wins) off and hopefully we can".
