NBA Playoffs 2017: 5 keys to Celtics vs. Bulls matchup
NBA Playoffs 2017: 5 keys to Celtics vs. Bulls matchup
16 Abril, 2017, 15:40
CHICAGO - Jimmy Butler scored 25 points, and the Bulls beat the depleted Nets in the regular-season finale to clinch an Eastern Conference playoff spot.
The win, and a loss by the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier in the evening, gives Boston home court advantage through the first three rounds of the postseason.
Clapping could be heard from the trainer's room, where players were tuned in. "We're aware of what's going on, and hopefully we can get the one seed".
There will still be a team waiting for the Celtics in the East.
Thomas had the best season of his career with the Celtics during this past regular season.

To speak of the screen, the Samsung Galaxy S7 comes with a 5.1 inch Super AMOLED Display in Quad HD with 2560*1440 resolutions. The iPhone won't be the first to have an edge-to-edge screen, but you can bet the company will describe it as revolutionary.
"I've never won [a division title], so yeah [it means something]", said Thomas. I think it's pretty cool to be the No. 1 seed and hopefully we can finish the season that way. "Whatever seed we get, we get - and that'll be a result of an 82-game schedule, not the result of one or two games".
Jae Crowder and Amir Johnson each had 16 points, Isaiah Thomas finished with 13 points and eight assists, and Al Horford added 12 points for Boston. In addition, he's averaging 6.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists. Obviously there aren't as many big names in this year's matchup, but we are still in for a big treat. I'm not sure why he feels slighted in that trade, he was basically stat hunting and couldn't shoot on a middling team, but every time he plays Boston he cranks it up to another gear.
The Celtics (52-29) built a 27-point lead in the third quarter, but a 37-point quarter and then another charge in the fourth got the Nets, who scored 40 in the first half, to within six in the fourth.
The Celtics got off to an inconsistent start as they struggled to maintain a winning run as the current champions the Cavs were racing away from the rest of the pack.
Cleveland, seemingly apathetic to where they fall in the seeding, sat Lebron James and Kevin Love against a Heat team that had everything to play for.

"It's a great honor, obviously a lot of fantastic players have played here", said Lopez, who finished the game with 10,434 career points.
Lin was told about Lopez's record. "I literally had no idea what he needed. That's what we did and we put ourselves in a good position at the end of the season". "If I could describe Brook in one word, it would be consistency". "More times than not you play that way you are going to win more games than you are going to lose".
George, who was assessed his second technical foul for his reaction to the play, was also tossed. "We need to understand it's a team problem, it's not just the guy guarding him, it's not just an individual assignment". As Miller sees it there are two very good things about the draw for the Bulls: the Celtics don't have strong recent playoff experience and they aren't the Cavaliers. That's the way I'm looking at it.
Regardless of how this shakes out, Butler will still get his points especially when Crowder is not in the game. The Nets were missing Gs Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) and Joe Harris (shoulder) and F Quincy Acy (ankle). How Thomas, the NBA's second-leading scorer this season, fares against Butler and the Bulls will impact the course of the series.
