Horrible news for the Bulls tonight in game 3, not only are they playing on ESPN, they're also going to be playing without point guard Rajon Rondo. Boston has now found a way back into the series without having to do anything. The Bulls have been playing on a whole new level, mostly in part to Rajon Rondo, the man the makes the team go. Without him the Bulls offense is without their conductor and that could potentially disrupt this amazing offensive tempo they've had going. Also, Rondo was doing a great job defending Isaiah Thomas because he has great length. Bad bad news for the Bulls as this series has taken on a whole new light.
The Celtics are playing in a must win game 3 tonight in Chicago. If the first two games told us anything, it's that the Celtics are not the better team in this series, however with the subtraction of Rondo from the Bulls, they are now. Isaiah Thomas is going to have a huge night offensively in game 3, the Celtics are going to get their mojo back, and win this series. All because Rondo is missing game 3 with a broken thumb.
If Rondo can come back to the Bulls in game 4 that'll be great news, although it may be too late. The last thing you want to give a team a chance when you have the chance to step on their throat. The Celtics get a win tonight the momentum swings right back to them and the whole series can change in the blink of an eye. This is the break the Celtics needed and it couldn't have come at a more perfect time. If Rondo is out for the entire series no chance the Bulls get out of the first round. Will Jimmy Butler and Dwayne Wade be able to elevate their game to make up for the loss of Rondo. A ton is on the line tonight in game 3, this could be the turning point in the series, or the end of the end of the series.
