Bulls' guard Rajon Rondo out indefinitely with broken right thumb
Apr 22 2017 by Dustin Murphy
Now is not the time for the Bulls to stumble, unless they want to Get Got. It means that the teams will now be playing in Chicago for the next two games, giving the Bulls home court advantage through most of the series.
Chyna Thomas, 22, died on Saturday in Washington state when her vehicle drifted into a highway barrier and then struck a post head-on.
He just missed out on his 11th play-off triple-double, finishing with 11 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds. Michael Carter-Williams could also see time at point guard, and Hoiberg could slide Jimmy Butler over to that position as well. Rondo says it will be the biggest game of the season for the team.
Isaiah Thomas scored 20 points for Boston.
Robinson, who played two games for the New Orleans Pelicans a year ago, averaged 13.1 points and 4.4 assists in 82 games for Chicago in 2012-13. The good news is the Bulls had won six of seven to finish out the regular season.

He stuck with the team in Boston for Game 2 on Tuesday night, before flying back to Washington to be with his family. But Boston responded with a run of its own, scoring eight straight to lead 52-43. Their style of play looks like the old Celtics on their glory days.
Trailing 41-44 at halftime, the Bulls closed to within a point in the first minute of the second half. The Rondo injury took place during Game 2 of the series, when the Bulls beat the Celtics 111-97 on the road. Al Horford has struggled against Robin Lopez and with the smaller Boston lineup, the Bulls have been able to feast on the rebounds.
With their playoff lives hanging in the balance, the Boston Celtics are turning to Gerald Green.
I think the Celtics can win this game, but they are so out of sync and Chicago is playing with such determination and confidence. Boston's play in the second quarter was a striking contrast to what happened in the first.
The Suns rallied to win the next three games to win the series 3-2. He's the best player in this series and is the reason the Bulls have stolen the first two games of this series. He orchestrated an offense that picked Boston to pieces, and on the other end, he seemed to know the game plan before it unraveled.
