Bulls Talk Podcast: Breaking down the Game 5 loss

04 May, 2017, 01:11 | Author: Ruben Patrick

That's often a recipe for disaster for the Boston Celtics, who seemingly tend to go as Isaiah Thomas goes.

Well, after the Bulls lost Game 5 on Wednesday to fall to 3-2 to Boston in the first-round series, Hoiberg was asked if he saw Thomas "carry the ball at all" during the game. He's out for Game 5, but Hoiberg at least left open the possibility of him returning before the end of the series. He grabbed six rebounds and the Celtics were plus-11 with him on the floor. Jimmy Butler has played well all series but it's obviously not enough as the Bulls are now just four quarters away from ending their season.

Dwyane Wade was called on a technical after his outcry that a foul should have been called on a hard Kelly O screen. "An unbelievable competitor. He's a warrior - everything he's going through right now, he had a helluva game tonight", Hoiberg said. But I guess we'll take a good second half as opposed to the opposite.

The All-Star forward tallied 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting from the field, and only had one free throw attempt (which he missed) during the entire game.

"I was just trying to be a little more aggressive on the offensive end", Bradley said.

Al Horford had 21 points, nine assists and seven rebounds for the Celtics. The head coach's response was "No", then he simply got up and left.

Currently, they must charge sick and health customers the same premiums. "As of now, they still don't have the votes", said Rep. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., says there'll be no vote in his chamber until leaders find enough support to win.

Last week, Hannity even warned that Shine leaving the network "would be the total end of the [Fox News Channel] as we know it". Shine had reportedly been named in at least four lawsuits accusing Ailes of engaging in harassing or discriminatory behavior.

Manchester United's Luke Shaw To See Specialist Over Injury
However, social media use is prevalent in the modern era, so it's of little wonder that many footballers make use of it. Shaw made a big-money moved to Manchester United from Southampton in 2014 after impressing under Pochettino.

Wade has had to play through his share of injuries during his career, and although he wouldn't divulge whatever Butler was going through, it seemed as if they had a conversation about managing his body.

Team-mate Avery Bradley was 11-of-19 from the floor as the Celtics became the first team in the series to win on home court. Neither team could claim more than a 8 point lead during the first or second quarters. If Chicago wins, Game 7 will be played in Boston at on Sunday afternoon.

Chicago was leading 81-79 early in the fourth before Thomas took over.

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 bad time.

The Bulls say Rajon Rondo is out for Friday night's Game 6 against the Boston Celtics as he continues to recover from a fractured right thumb and a torn ligament in his right wrist. "That should be motivation enough, to know that if we don't win this next game, we ain't playing no more this season".

The Boston Celtics and Isaiah Thomas fare well as a favorite against the Chicago Bulls, plus they're fully staffed going into a potential clinching Game 6 on Friday.
