Chicago Bulls lose 104-87 but still lead the series 2-1.
Bulls headed to halftime trailing 44-41. Celtics led by 20 at one points. Wade had 14 points and Jimmy Butler had 2 points on 1-7. Celtics shot 5-22 in 2nd.
The Bulls were just off all game long. They had a bad start and just gave the Celtics confidence. Celtics were running very simple actions, and Bulls shown no ability to adjust on pick & roll coverage. Bulls missed Rajon Rondo. Rondo’s ability to direct players on the defensive end really missed tonight. Bulls finish with 14 assists. Bulls reserves seem confused with who they’re guarding. Bulls still lead the series 2-1, but it was disappointing the way the Bulls played. Bulls got nothing from their point guards, Butler and Wade shot a combined 13-39. Michael Carter Williams and Jerian Grant had a horrible game. Here’s the lineup the Bulls should start in Game 4: Butler/Wade/Zipser/Mirotic/Lopez. No excuse to play a different one.
Jimmy Butler was struggling and didn’t play the way Bulls fans expect him to play. You are not gonna win with the way Butler played. Butler had 14 points, 7-21 FGs, 0-0 FTs, 7 rebs, 0 asts, 1 stl, 1 block and 1 turnover. Sunday Night is a must win. The Bulls need to come out and play Bulls basketball.
