Boston Celtics Sink 0-2 in Round 1

Boston Celtics Sink 0-2 in Round 1

At the time of Smart flipping a fan "the bird", the Celtics were once again trailing their opponents - this time by 14 points, 100-86 - despite playing each of the first two games of the series at home in Boston.

ROCKETS 115, THUNDER 111: James Harden scored 35 points and Houston, at home, overcame 51 points from Russell Westbrook in a triple-double, clawing back from a double-digit deficit to take a 2-0 lead in the first-round Western Conference series.

Bobby Portis feeling good after the Chicago Bulls defeated the Boston Celtics in Game One of the Eastern Conference Semi-finals. Chris Paul had 21 points and 10 assists and DeAndre Jordan added a double-double of 18 points and 15 rebounds. There were some that have even questioned whether or not Hoiberg was the right choice to lead this Bulls team. Tonight, our job was easy, we just had to play. "You can tell. I think that during the games and during walkthroughs and the film, he's trying his very best to focus".

The Bulls have also gotten big contributions from their role players and have pounded the Celtics on the glass, outrebounding them by 22 through the first two games.

Facebook unveils a big push into bots at F8
Facebook Messenger is becoming more than just a texting app - it'll take care of restaurant recommendations, bills, and more. Even Facebook's head of Messenger, David Marcus, admitted at a tech conference last September that bots were "overhyped".

Jazz: Gobert, who injured his knee just 17 seconds into the series opener, joined two assistant coaches for a pregame meal in the media dining room, an area rarely visited by players. "I just try to lock in what I can for my team". Butler also posted eight rebounds and eight assists. It is about figuring out how to get all this talent to work together, to make things as hard as possible on the Bulls team. They went from this year's scrappy boys in green to the King slayers to a team that was vehemently booed by its own fans on Tuesday night.

This Bulls team was better-suited for the playoffs rather than the regular season all along, and now that they've squeaked in someone has to pay for it.

Their Game 1 victory would not be their only win over the Celtics either. He pushed the ball in transition- attacking the holes in Boston's defense-making the extra pass. The series, now tied 1-1, shifts to Milwaukee for Game 4 on Thursday.

Lopez shot 45.9% during the regular season on shots between 10-16 feet, which was far above league average and by far the best for his entire career.
