Notebook: Bulls 94, Celtics 80


Paul Ladewski, for NBA.com
Posted Tue Apr 01, 2014 12:29 AM - Updated Tue Apr 01, 2014 12:29 AM

THE FACT: The Bulls overcame an early nine-point deficit to move into a dead heat with the Toronto Raptors for the third spot in the Eastern Conference race. What's at stake? The No. 3 seed likely would avoid the playoff-savvy Brooklyn Nets in the first round and might not face the defending champion Miami Heat until the conference finals. The Bulls have three home games left on their schedule, while the Raptors have five on theirs.

THE LEAD: The Chicago Bulls dropped the Bostom Celtics 94-80 in Chicago Monday night. The absence of veteran floor leader Rajon Rondo torpedoed a rudderless Celtics team. To compound matters, Avery Bradley (sore right Achilles) went down late in the second period, which left Jerryd Bayless as the only experienced guard in uniform.

Unable to get into their halfcourt sets, the visitors relied primarily on one-on-one forays. The Bulls (42-32) seized control on a 13-0 run at the start of the fourth quarter, one in which Mike Dunleavy and Joakim Noah combined for 15 points. Dunleavy led the home team with 22 points, while Brandon Bass had 18 points, nine rebounds and four blocked shots for the Celtics (23-51).

QUOTABLE: "(The No. 3 seed) is pretty important. We want to try to get as high as we can, not only because of the homecourt advantage but to avoid the first seed until the second round if we're fortunate enough to advance."
-- Bulls' sharp-shooter Mike Dunleavy

QUOTABLE II: "(Dunleavy) does a lot more than just shoot. He is always a threat with his shot and creates space. No one is leaving Mike Dunleavy open. One of the things that gets him the looks is, he is a great screener. He moves extremely well without the ball, so he is creating shooting opportunities."
-- Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau

THE STAT: In the second half, the Celtics were held to 30 points on 12-for-38 (32 percent) in the field.

QUOTABLE III: "For whatever reason, we looked heavy-legged at the end of the second half across the board. That's not an excuse, because they played last night, too."
-- Celtics coach Brad Stevens

INJURY UPDATE: As a precautionary measure, Rondo (right knee surgery) did not play in the second of back-to-back games. He provided analysis on the team television broadcast in the first half.

GOOD MOVE: Inactive the previous night, Celtics guard Phil Pressey was inserted into the lineup and provided some fresh legs off the bench. In the first half, the rookie scored six points and limited counterpart D.J. Augustin to four points on 1-for-7 in the field.

QUOTABLE IV: "We had only five perimeter (players), and that was a curveball that we didn't hit well. But Phil did a good job on Augustin in the first half especially."
--Celtics' coach Brad Stevens

HOT: The front line of Dunleavy, Noah, Carlos Boozer and reserve Taj Gibson combined for 71 points, 32 rebounds and nine assists.

NOT: Bradley bricked all five of his field goal attempts before he pulled up lame in the second period. The injury was not believed to be serious.

NOTABLE: At 42-32, the Bulls are as many as 10 games above .500 for the first time this season . . . The Bulls swept the season series for the first time since the 2006-07 season . . . The Celtics fell to 4-14 in the second of back-to-back games . . . Noah is on a pace to become the first center in 20 years to lead his team in assists. The San Antonio Spurs' David Robinson was the last to do it. . . Kelly Olynyk could become the 12th Celtics player to total 500 points, 300 rebounds and 100 assists in his rookie season. The select company includes Larry Bird, Bob Cousy, Dave Cowens and John Havlicek among others.

UP NEXT: For the Celtics, Wednesday @ Washington, Friday vs. Philadelphia, Saturday @ Detroit. For the Bulls, Wednesday @ Atlanta, Friday vs. Milwaukee, Saturday @ Washington.
