Bulls guard Rajon Rondo out indefinitely with broken thumb

With the series tied 2-2, Game 4 is Sunday in Chicago and it will prove to be a crucial game for both teams with the victor having momentum going forward in the series. But he also handed out nine assists, his highest total since late January, controlling the Celtics offense that looked far more like itself than it had in the first two games, scoring 104 points on 48 percent shooting in a blowout victory Friday night in Chicago. This is the best Rondo we have seen and because of the players and coaches. With that being said, the Celtics are now up and running so I like their chances to level the series against this shorthanded Bulls team with a win and cover in Game 4. Chicago is 121-50 all-time in home playoff games.

The injury occured in game two of their playoff series against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday, and x-rays confirmed the fracture. Jimmy Butler was averaging 26 points per game this series and tonight had his worst game in this year's playoffs as he was only scored 14 points and collected seven rebounds.

Rajon Rondo had 14 assists in Game 2, his 42 career playoff game with double-digit assists (the most among active players).

L.A. Clippers 111, (at) Utah 106: Chris Paul scored 34 and the Clippers rallied past the Jazz to take a 2-1 lead in the series.

"We're all right. We're still expecting to win", Butler said.

Bulls: The Bulls were 6 of 21 on 3-pointers. If Stevens continues to adjust and Thomas gets help from Boston's other big names, we're going to be back to an even series, heading back to Boston for Game 5.

But, due to Rondo's absence, things are about to get a lot more interesting between the Bulls and the Celtics. He's incredibly quick and has left behind Dwyane Wade, Jerian Grant, Robin Lopez, and just about anyone else who has squared up on him defensively through the first three games of this series. He, like Rondo, can't shoot, but with his great size at the point guard position, could certainly bother the Celtics with his length.

The incident happened with 31.1 seconds remaining in the first quarter on Friday.

The Celtics' lead was down to 44-43 early in the third when Thomas hit Horford for an alley-oop dunk and nailed back-to-back 3-pointers.

Rondo, who was injured in Game 2, will probably be re-evaluated in a week to 10 days.

After the game, Rondo said he was just stretching a stiff leg.

Boston pulled away in the fourth, building a 17-point lead keyed by an Avery Bradley three-pointer and back-to-back buckets by Jonas Jerebko.

Russell had a triple-double with time to spare in the third quarter, and finished with 32, 13 and 11. They were up 37-17 early in the second before the Bulls got within one point.
