Game 3: Celtics at Bulls, 4 p.m.
Game 3 will be different from the first two games of the series.
Chicago are the first No. 8 seed to take a 2-0 lead in a first-round series - and even better, they did it on the road.
"Everybody is putting in the extra work- watching film and working on their game- and that's where your confidence always comes from", said Jimmy Butler after the game.
With the top-seeded Boston Celtics down 0-2 in their National Basketball Association playoff series against the Chicago Bulls, most people would assume they're not doing enough to win. Dwyane Wade returned earlier than expected on April 8 against the Brooklyn Nets to score 14 points, per NBA.com. Being without the veteran guard certainly doesn't help.
John Wall earned chants of "M-V-P!" while finishing with 32 points and nine assists, including the dish to Beal for his shot from beyond the arc with 38 seconds remaining that sealed the win for the hosts.
While Wade and Butler are the Bulls go to guys, they will need legitimate contributions from role players, which they got in their game one win. The Celtics' lineup has been well-aware of their lapses since the Bulls took a lead but Avery Bradley said they are not going to quit in this best-of-seven game series.

"As I told him, "Way to run your team".More news: Netflix on the verge of hitting 100 million subscribers
