Bulls early surprise of playoffs after taking 2 at Boston

Charles Barkley, Rest Your Voice: Here's the Other Terrible Thing He Said Tonight

The Celtics need someone else on their roster to step up offensively. They didn't pay to get a player such as Lou Williams, a proven bench scorer who would help Boston survive when Isaiah Thomas isn't on the floor.

Now, they'll have to keep that intensity on the road as they try to regain the home court advantage they surrendered in dropping game one of the best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series in Los Angeles. Chicago also split with Joakim Noah and Pau Gasol, helping clear the way for young players such as Bobby Portis to get more time.

No services have been planned for Chyna Thomas, who was killed in a vehicle accident on Saturday. I don't know what it is. "We had adversity throughout this year as every team has and that's the thing that's made us closer and stronger together". I think that's all we have. I know what's at stake.

"We've got a great group of guys in here", Kelly Olynyk said. What a difference a month makes.

Trump advisers to meet Tuesday to discuss Paris climate agreement
Some coal companies and Republicans believe Obama's Paris pledge can be substituted with subsidies emissions control technology. Trump can't pull the USA out of the worldwide pact immediately, though he could begin a four-year process of withdrawing.

Whatever the reason, it's become clear that the current makeup isn't good enough to make any kind of impact in the Eastern Conference, let alone be a legitimate challenger to represent the East in the finals. Rondo, who spent 8 years in Boston to begin his career and also won a championship there in 2008, nearly notched a triple-double at TD Garden in Game 2.

They were prepared to take a 2-0 lead. No other Celtic scored 20 points in either of the first two games. He at a serious personnel matchup disadvantage in this series because Rajon Rondo, Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler are getting support from Robin Lopez and Nikola Mirotic. We'll dissect the film, we'll go through it, we'll figure out what we didn't do well and there'll be quite a lot, and go from there. Tonight I wasn't able to get into a rhythm offensively.

Look at the stat sheet for the first two games of the series. Butler has outplayed Isaiah Thomas in the battle of stars.

Thomas' comments, released in a team statement Wednesday, are his first public ones since 22-year-old Chyna Thomas died in a crash early Saturday outside of Tacoma, Washington.

Syrian TV says dozens killed in blast near evacuation buses
Thousands of evacuees from both sides of Syria's civil war have been stuck in hostile territory since Friday. He accused the government or extremist rebel groups of orchestrating the attack to discredit the opposition.

MARCUS SMART of the Celtics was fined $25,000 by the National Basketball Association for making an obscene gesture in the Game 2 loss to Chicago.

Midway through the fourth quarter, Smart lifted his middle finger in the direction of the home crowd.

Fizdale blasted the officiating in a almost two-minute tirade during his postgame interview Monday night, calling the work of veteran crew Danny Crawford, Rodney Mott and Bill Spooner "unprofessional" and "unacceptable" before slamming his fist on a table and storming off.

Watching the Bulls jump out to a 2-0 series lead over the Celtics seems even more shocking given their drama-filled season. Butler has been a perennial all-star and averaged 23.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 6.2 rebounds per game.

Ronaldo resting, Isco's 2 goals keeps Madrid on title track
Madrid travel north on the back of their 2-1 win away over Bayern Munich in the Champions League and with their morale sky high. I think we deserved the victory because we had many chances to score more goals. "We need everyone and everyone responds".
