Thomas to head to sister's funeral after Game 6 vs Bulls

Frederick Owens | 30 April, 2017, 03:26

Their season over after a 105-83 loss to the Celtics in Game 6 on Friday night, the Bulls will soon turn their attention to an offseason full of questions. Now, they're ready for the next one as they prepare for their second-round series against the Washington Wizards.

No need to worry about that. The Wizards now head to Boston for Game 1 of a highly anticipated series with the Celtics that begins Sunday. After winning the first two games of the series, the eighth-seeded Bulls were dominated the next four games. He did both (32 points, 14 assists) in Game 1. "Getting first place, (it) quickly humbled us, I think, losing two games and hearing all the analysts on TV saying that it was the (second) time in history it's ever happened. It just gave us a chance to come back and play as a group and as a whole". "We were as focused and we were enjoying the moment". Butler posted a team-high point total in game 6 despite being hampered by a knee problem. He nailed three three-pointers and the Celtics hit 16 of 39 from long range.

Gerald Green scored 16 and Isaiah Thomas had 12 before heading home to Washington state for his sister Chyna's funeral on Saturday.

Chyna Thomas, 22, died in a auto accident on April 15, the day before the Celtics began their playoff series against the Bulls. "I was really proud of our guys for how they treated each other, how they stood together, stuck together".

Jimmy Butler scored 23 points for Bulls, who squandered a 2-0 lead after a pair of lopsided victories in Boston.

Sure, it didn't hurt that the Bulls' Rajon Rondo sat out the final four games because of a broken right thumb.

Wade's decision must come before the July 1 start of National Basketball Association free agency and its not out of the question he returns to Miami, which tied the Bulls at 41-41 for the eighth and final playoff seed in the East despite a bad start to the season. "When they do that, they're really hard to guard, they're a really good team". They buried the Bulls in the third, outscoring them, 34-18. After a hard foul he gathered his four teammates in a huddle near the baseline and shouted that the series for the Bulls was "a wrap for these m--!" When you're playing basketball for money at the top level, it's not all bad. "We were all smiling and having fun and that's how it's supposed to be".

If the series against the Bulls was a battle, this matchup against the Wizards is lining up to be a bloodbath.

Bulls: The Bulls had 15 turnovers and 13 assists.

"Obviously a very disappointing way for it to end", Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said. New Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky, the No. 2 pick in the draft, got a rude welcome from the Bulls' crowd.

The Jazz trailed by eight points entering the fourth quarter, but cut Los Angeles' lead to just three points late in the game. After last month's trade with the Thunder, sources said management told Butler they would discuss his and the team's future with him at season's end. Go home and grab some dinner and talk about it with it my guys. After they dropped the first two games in the series, all the complaints came out: Brad Stevens has never won a playoff series. Boston needs Avery Bradley to continue supplementing Isaiah Thomas' scoring. And if you're into reading body language, his smirk when he said he wants to remain in Chicago might interest you.
