The Bulls say x-rays during an exam following the game confirmed a thumb fracture. The series now comes back to Chicago for the next two games, where if the Bulls can keep this up, can close the series and move on to the next round.

Arguably, the most surprising story line of the National Basketball Association playoffs thus far is the 2-0 lead the No. 8 seed Chicago Bulls have taken over the No. 1 seed, Boston Celtics.

The team announced the injury on Friday, hours before the Bulls host the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series.

In the game-two triumph, Rondo had 11 points, a team playoff record-tying 14 assists, nine rebounds and five steals. The Celtics dabbled in talks with the Indiana Pacers for Paul George and, ironically, the Bulls on Jimmy Butler, but opted not to make a deal for either.

Game 3 of the best-of-seven series is Friday in Chicago.

Indeed, in the direct aftermath of the Game 2 victory, Hoiberg praised Rondo's defense on Thomas. It is much easier to scheme against an opposing superstar for one night and the 2-4 times you see him in the regular season than 4-7 straight games like the playoffs are. And when Rondo suffered a torn ACL injury on January 27, 2013 at Atlanta, he continued to play on that game, unaware of the injury that wound up sidelining him for the rest of the season. He still put up some solid numbers but only played in 47 games while dealing with shoulder and ankle injuries. He had looked like a true floor general in the first two games. If not Grant or Carter-Williams, the Bulls will need a lift from someone else on offense, unless they expect Butler to carry them for the rest of this series by himself. "Our backs are against the wall right now and we as a team have played with a chip on our shoulders the whole year and been the underdog", said Crowder.

Despite that, the consensus has been that the Bulls would rush to let Rondo go this offseason.

The Celtics find themselves scrambling to right the ship before the series gets any worse for Boston than it already is.

"Rondo's obviously been unbelievable in the two wins that we had in Boston", Hoiberg said.

"Honestly, I feel like I play pretty good with IT [Thomas]".

While both the Hawks and Wizards had much better regular seasons than the Bulls, Chicago has a chance to reach the Eastern Conference Finals if they can get past Boston.

"He's a great teammate; always positive, working on his game and staying ready", said Valentine.

When it comes to a playoff series, the team with the best player usually wins.
