Butler contributed 22 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, while Rondo chipped in 11 points and 14 assists.

Robin Lopez added 18 points and eight boards to the win.

The Bulls' Game 1 win improved them to 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS over their past 10 games, according to the OddsShark NBA Database, reversing a 4-10 SU run that threatened to extinguish their playoff hopes.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (YAH'-nihs an-the-yuh-KUHM'-poh) had 24 points and 15 rebounds for the Bucks, who host Game 3 on Thursday.

"When I came here, in my [introductory] press conference, I said it was Jimmy Butler's team", Wade said. Have failed to score 100 points in three of their last four postseason games dating back to past year. Portis, who had a huge game in the opener, played just 9:22 and had three points and three rebounds.

However, after two games, they have a 2-0 lead and now seemingly have everything to gain.

The Celtics finished Game 1 with an offensive rating of 110.0, which is close to what their rating was during the regular season (111.1).

The series shifts to Chicago on Friday night for Game 3. This is the best team they have had in a while with Isaiah Thomas, an MVP candidate, and Al Horford, the big money free agent signing in the last offseason.
