Marcus Smart Flipped Off a Fan During Celtics' Game 2 Loss

The first thing that needs to be said is that first seed-eighth seed aside, the competitiveness of this series may not be all that surprising. The Bulls were up 14 with 6:11 remaining when Smart missed the 3-pointer before the incident.

Smart finished with 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting over 27 minutes.

"He's a confident kid and that rubs off on all the other guys", coach Fred Hoiberg said. "He got us good shots early to get us some confidence". Wade saw that firsthand and has been impressed with his recent performances. We were just good enough to have a third option. "I think the biggest thing we have to do is be forward-looking and prepare for Friday". Fred (Hoiberg) gives us a voice.

"He's so locked in. It's a difficult time, but we're here for him and we're going to go out and compete and play hard". It is easier said than done, and Rajon Rondo has been doing a phenomenal job of running the offense. And we just have to be able to focus on the next possession better. "As I told him, 'Way to run your team.' He did an awesome job with that". He's been here before plus two NBA Finals with a championship to boot. "I'm not the one that they usually contact; usually they contact the front office". Sure, why not. Can the Bulls keep switching and playing great defense? Rondo appeared in 69 games this season and started 42 of those outings, while Michael Carter-Williams and Jerian Grant also earned starts as well.

"Yes, a lot of talking, " Nikola Mirotic said of Rondo with a laugh. "I think it's just God disguised as Michael Jordan".

"It's just who he is, he's a fighter, a competitor, and I knew he wasn't going to satisfied with the way he played in the first game". And these Bulls are the same Bulls who, in late January, underwent something of a team-wide nervous breakdown, as both Butler and Wade were benched for comments critical of the team and Rondo expressed his own conflicting frustrations via an Instagram post.

Nothing seemed to go right for the celtics on Sunday night.

The Celtics have not been disruptive to the Bulls in this series, and they need to work as a unit in order to overcome that. "I wish it was tonight", he said. "Everyone did it together".

The Bulls became only the second eighth seed in National Basketball Association playoff history to win the first two games of a seven-game series on the road.

The Chicago Bulls have shocked the world and the Boston Celtics once again on Tuesday at the TD Garden in Game 2 of their 2017 NBA Playoffs first round series.

Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler scored 22 points each, leading six Bulls players in double figures. "Sometimes when I'm not open I also shoot the ball. Man, when we're getting stops, we're pretty tough".

In Toronto, Kyle Lowry bounced back from a lackluster game one as the Raptors beat the Bucks 106-100 to level their series at one game each. Game 3 will be their biggest game of the season and their biggest test yet. Yes, Rondo required discipline after throwing a towel at a Bulls assistant and likely challenged authority behind closed doors more than anybody knows.
