NBA Playoffs Live Betting: Bulls vs CelticsPublished April 26, 2017 by Sol FH
The Chicago Bulls are in Boston to take on the Celtics in a very important Game 5 tonight at 1:30 GMT.
The first round of this year's NBA playoffs has already proven to be one of the most exciting in recent years. The Cavs, Warriors and Rockets are already through to the next round, but of the series' still yet to be decided, the classic battle between the Bulls and the Celtics is one of the best. The series between Chicago and Boston is currently tied at two games apiece and tonight is an incredibly important match-up for both teams, as a 3-2 lead usually turns into a series win.
The Celtics have the home court advantage tonight, but surprisingly, both teams have lost their two home games so far in this series to the visiting team. The Celtics lost game 1 and game 2 at TD Garden, but came back to win Games 3 and 4 at United Center. This could just mean that the Celtics, whom had the best record in the Eastern Conference, just needed to get warmed up, because the two games that they won at Chicago were both heavy victories.
The Bulls need to make some changes to deal with the explosive offense that the Celtics have. Not that the Bulls don't have an excellent defense, because they do, but they need to make some changes to deal with Hofort, Thomas and Bradley. Good news for the Bulls, Rojon Rondo will attempt to play in Game 5. He fractured his thumb in Game 2 and since then the Bulls have lost, so having him back in the lineup will surely give the rest of the line some breathing room.
