Chicago also pulled down 20 offensive rebounds and converted 23 second-chance points to Boston's 15. "Definitely Game 3 is just one game, but it's going to be the biggest game of our season and we want to approach it with that mindset and try to go out there and get another 'W, '" Rondo said. "I thought our half-court defense was pretty good besides (the fact that) it seemed like, if they put up a shot and missed, they got the ball and put the ball back in the basket". "You go through a lot throughout a season".

Gordon Hayward led the Jazz with 20, but while Utah repeatedly fought back from double-digit deficits they couldn't get the gap under six points in the fourth quarter.
