Isaiah Thomas to play Game 2, then fly to sister's funeral

As he tragically lost his sister, Chyna Thomas, in a vehicle accident Saturday morning and then somehow played the very next day in Game 1, which shows how strong he really is.

The Bulls used several quick spurts to control the game, the last one the 10-0 burst that built a 19-point lead in the fourth quarter. He guarded Isaiah (Thomas) for most of the game tonight; had his hands full with that. But it just seemed like he wasn't completely into the game.

"We're never going to make excuses, but this is hard", said the Celtics' Al Horford. "Once you do your job defensively, you get in your defensive coverages, and then the shot finally goes out, sometimes you just get caught staring at the shot like, 'OK, I've done my job.' But the job isn't over until you actually get in front of your man and get the ball".

The Bulls stomped the Boston Celtics, 111-97 on Tuesday night, and the game ended with Boston's fans booing the hometown team.

Yet freed on Sunday the forward turned in arguably his best game as a member of the team. Everyone will flip out. "I don't have any siblings, but I have some very, very close people in my life and I can only imagine how that would take your heart away", James said. They'll bring up the "TNT Bulls". "We're the No. 1 seed, and then they say we're one of the worst No. 1 seeds". Though barely making the playoffs as the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, the Bulls looked like legitimate title contenders, playing with poise and experience that matters heavily in the postseason. Game 1s are notorious for overreaction in the National Basketball Association.

The Celtics held a pregame moment of silence for Thomas' sister.

Six Bulls finished in double figures, with Robin Lopez scoring 18, Paul Zipser 16 off the bench and Nikola Mirotic 13. Chicago was also a beast off the boards, out-rebounding the Celtics, 53-36.

Boston were completely out-rebounded by Chicago on the offensive glass as the Bulls brutally exposed the home team's lack of height in the paint and made the most of second-chance points. At least he was able to help this team get going early on. Due to their inability to finish plays, Boston's opponents averaged 44.5 rebounds a night with 10.8 coming on the offensive glass.

"I thought he was the key early in the game as far as getting us up the floor", added Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg. And when he did see the court again, it was as a reserve for 27 games. Expect them to come back hot and better on both ends of the floor.
