Former Celtic Rajon Rondo contributed 11 assists and was one rebound away from a triple-double as the Bulls pulled away in the final moments of the game.
Given the Bulls' inconsistency this season, there is still some hope for the Celtics, but the first step toward getting back into the series is entering Game 3 with a better mindset than they left Game 2 with.

"If those guys want to listen, I try to give as much advice as possible", Rondo said.
The Bulls used several quick spurts to control this game, the last one a 10-0 burst to build a 19-point lead in the fourth quarter.
There was nothing that prompted Hoiberg to bench Rondo in Game 2, as he sat for a grand total of just eight minutes on the night.
