Celtics Marcus Smart fined $25000 for giving fan the middle finger
Instead, he chose to honor his sister by putting up 33 points, 6 assists, and 6 rebounds in a valiant effort against the Bulls Sunday night. "And that's where your confidence always comes from". Game 3 is scheduled for Friday. The Celtics, at 53-29, won just 12 more games than the 8-seeded Bulls, and have the fewest wins of an Eastern Conference 1 seed since the 2007 Detroit Pistons, who also went 53-29. But Thomas led the team out of the tunnel when Boston took the floor for pregame warmups.
BOSTON (AP) - Celtics guard Marcus Smart has been fined $25,000 by the National Basketball Association for making an obscene gesture during Boston's first-round Game 2 loss to Chicago.
But the front office wanted to hang on to Rondo's contract as a possible trade chip, and the coaching staff eventually decided the veteran point guard could have value leading the second unit, imparting his wisdom to young players like Denzel Valentine, Bobby Portis, Michael Carter-Williams, Paul Zipser and Cris Felicio.
"I can't wait for (tomorrow) night's game".
But now the Celtics coach, perhaps with a change or two in the lineup, gets to see who on this roster responds to potential elimination from the playoffs.
The other key for the Bulls is to win the rebounding battle. "We want to approach it with that mindset and try to get another W. It's one game at a time, one possession at a time". For those who really understand the game, they were packing the paint making us find shooters. "I got to my spot and let it go". "All together. And it is tough, it is a challenge, but it is what we're called to do, and so we need to do it". He knows what it takes to win. Heading into the game the Bulls have of had the goal of expanding their lead in the series.
