The Boston Celtics and the Chicago Bulls will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at United Center.The Chicago Bulls will look to earn their first home win of the series and stave off elimination against the top-seeded Boston Celtics as small underdogs for Game 6 on Friday. The Bulls have lost the last three games without point guard Rajon Rondo and may be without him again here.
Bradley matched fellow guard Isaiah Thomas with 24 points in Game 5 but he was much more efficient, shooting 11-of-19 from the floor, compared to 6-of-17 for Thomas. “Even the stat sheet doesn’t explain how good of a player he is sometimes,” Thomas told the media of Bradley. “When he’s not scoring or rebounding, he’s doing a lot of things to help out everybody else on this team, whether that be help-side defense, whether that be making the right play on offense. He’s a complete basketball player.” Center Al Horford has been making a bigger impact as the series drags on, averaging 18 points, nine rebounds, 6.3 assists and two steals in Boston’s three victories.
Chicago was even with Boston for most of Game 5 on the road without Rondo before falling apart down the stretch. That has to give the team at least some confidence along with playing an elimination game at home. The Bulls were a solid home team during the regular season at 25-16 straight up and had gone 11-5 SU and ATS in their previous 16 games as underdogs at the United Center prior to Games 3 and 4.
