NBA Playoff


The Boston Celtics come into Chicago looking to close out the series against a Bulls team that has lost 3 straight. Isaiah Thomas has been magnificent, scoring 24 points last game. As well as Thomas has played, Avery Bradley is the real story on this Celtics team right now. Al Horford has played great yet again in game 5, notching 21 points, 9 assists, and 7 rebounds. Horford spaces the floor very well against Robin Lopez, who is not as quick, and knows how to set his teammates up for easy buckets by drawing Lopez to the three point line.

For Chicago, Jimmy Butler has been struggling as he shot 6 for 15 last game. For the Bulls to stay alive tonight, Jimmy Butler needs to play great. We estimate Jimmy Butler is going to play at least 40-42 minutes tonight. At home, Jimmy Butler is known to be a better player. Butler is one of the most clutch players in the NBA, so look for him to bounce back tonight on his home court.
