Sans Rondo, Bulls Look to Take Back Series Lead vs. Celtics

For those hoping to see Rajon Rondo play with one healthy arm again - who can forget his one-armed performance in the 2012 conference finals with a dislocated left elbow - they'll have to wait at least until Game 6.

Chicago will undoubtedly be coming out with a high level of energy as they suit up in front of their home crowd in a potential elimination game.

The top-seeded Boston Celtics are back from the brink of disaster.

The other reality for Hoiberg is that the reason the Bulls are in this situation isn't just that Rondo suffered a couple of injuries at a awful time.

While he's been working diligently to return from a fractured right thumb, Rondo is still expected to miss Game 6. Rondo's numbers are huge enough to help the Bulls in the coming game. He has been practicing lightly over the last few days, but is not willing to risk further damage by playing through the injury.

Hoiberg said Isaiah Canaan will start in Rondo's place for a second straight game.

With a one-word response and prompt exit, Chicago Bulls Coach Fred Hoiberg became the latest to provide a must-see moment during a 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs news conference.

Atletico hope to overcome Real in clash of neighbours
The last time Real made the trip to Granada's Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes , they needed a late Luka Modric goal to win 2-1. The Argentine said away goals could be very important to how the tie between two evenly matched teams plays out.

The game was relatively choppy for the Celtics in the first half with missed shot after missed shot. Those Bulls that were up 2-0 earlier in the series are no more.

This game went back and forth all night long until the Boston Celtics went on a 20-5 run in the fourth quarter to blow it open.

But still, Lopez is overall having a great Game 5. The veterans are squabbling, and the youngsters aren't ready for the moment, while the front office never found a capable backup point guard despite having four of them.

Boston's Al Horford finished with 21 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. From the bence, Kelly Olynyk scored 14 points while Marcus Smart added eight points.

"I knew last week it wasn't going to be fixed in a week", Rondo said, according to the Chicago Tribune. Shooting 11-for-11 from the free-throw line, Thomas showed the way to be the anchor of the team when the game is on the line.

Dwyane Wade had 26 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists for the Bulls, who sputtered down the stretch.

Boston's backcourt inflicted the most damage as Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley Beal each dropped 24 points while combining for 11 rebounds and five assists. Luckily for the Celtics, they had just six turnovers to offset the poor shooting night. So, if Boston can put forth a similar defensive effort against Butler tonight, they should fly out of Chicago with a first-round victory.
