Rondo the kingpin as Bulls hit overdrive

Rajon Rondo injured his right hand in Game 2 at Boston on Tuesday night.

Bulls G Rajon Rondo out indefinitely with a thumb fracture he suffered in Game 2.

The Bulls said Rondo's injury will not require surgery, but a source told ESPN's Chris Haynes that the injury was "pretty serious" and his possible return depends on how long the Bulls' can extend their postseason run.

Rondo averaged 11.5 points and 10 assists over the first two games, and came within one rebound of a triple double with his 11-point, 14-assist, nine-rebound performance in Game 2. It means that the teams will now be playing in Chicago for the next two games, giving the Bulls home court advantage through most of the series.

The Bulls, 41-41 in the regular season, are attempting to become the sixth No. 8 seed to upset a No. 1 in the first round - and the first since the Philadelphia 76ers upset Chicago in the 2012 play-offs. But no question about it, what happens throughout this year as I go into my summer, I'll definitely take a look at it.

"So just because a guy starts doesn't mean he's going to play 40 minutes". His scoring was not as strong during game 2 on April. 18th, which was also in front of a Boston crowd as the Celtics dropped another game 97-111 with Isaiah contributing only 20, 4 and 2. Game Three is pivotal for this Bulls team. This is one of the best defensive teams that you're going to play, especially from a guard standpoint. It was the first time a No. 1 seed dropped the first two games to a No. 8 seed since 1993, but in that series, the Phoenix Suns actually ending up moving on, beating the Los Angeles Lakers. Crowder jawed at the Bulls' bench after hitting a jumper and Rondo extended his leg as he walked by. The Suns went on to sweep the eighth seed from that point on and made it to the NBA Finals before losing to Michael Jordan's Bulls. In Game 2, Robin Lopez chipped in with 18 and eight, while Paul Zipser scored 16. But the injury is expected to keep him out for the rest of this series, a huge blow to a Chicago team that was playing its best basketball of the season with Rondo running the show. They put him and check and brought out the best in him. It's been very obvious the Bulls are stepping up behind star Jimmy Butler, while the Celtics haven't done as much around top-scorer Isaiah Thomas.
