The Celtics are on the brink.
In a conversation with the Boston Globe's Adam Himmelsbach earlier this season, Thomas said he reached out to congratulate Brady after the Patriots came back from a 28-3 deficit. "But we are in this position".
If the Bulls are able to get past Boston in the first round, they will face the victor of the Washington Wizards and Atlanta Hawks in round two. "That's not the case".
The reversal of fortune from regular season to playoffs has struck the totals, too. The Bruins trailed 4-1 in the third period of a Game 7 against Toronto in 2013 before winning in overtime.
The Celtics' task just got a lot easier. Right now we're just not playing our best basketball.
Ainge was in the latter stages of his playing days in 1993 when his Phoenix Suns rallied from a 2-0 deficit to top the Los Angeles Lakers in a best-of-five first-round series. Brad Stevens and others in the Celtics organization openly acknowledged that this team was not as good as their record led people to believe. The Celtics dabbled in talks with the Indiana Pacers for Paul George and, ironically, the Bulls on Jimmy Butler, but opted not to make a deal for either. For some reason, the city of Boston is still fully committed to his philosophy, but that might change with two more wins in this series.
"That's their job, and I know they're really good at it".
Injury update: None of note.
1993 - #8 Los Angeles Lakers led the #1 Phoenix Suns 2-0.

After what happened, Dao "has no interest in ever seeing an airplane" and will probably be driven to Kentucky, Demetrio said. United Airlines announced that it will compensate all passengers who were on board United Express Flight 3411 Sunday night.

Collectively the trio of lottery picks - Victor Oladipo, Enes Kanter and Steven Adams - the Thunder have surrounded Westbrook with is averaging just 20 points a game.

Injury update: Rockets F Sam Dekker (left hand) is out. However, with the Bulls now in contention for a possible second round appearance, the 12-time NBA All-Star has gone to a neutral stance when it comes to staying in Chicago next season. How will OKC find a way now?
After two games in Los Angeles, CA, this series is all knotted up at 1-1. That essentially means he's out for the remainder of the series.
Keep an eye on: J.J. Redick.
"That's the thing", Oladipo said, "when you have games like this, you go back to the basics". In the first game, Utah's star center, Rudy Gobert, hyperextended and bruised his knee on the first possession. First, no Gobert again is huge.
The Thunder acquired Oladipo in a draft-night deal with Orlando past year, and it looked like he would be the team's third option.
