Celtics Lose Battle with the Bulls 119 to 103

The Celtics put up a big fight versus the Bulls tonight, but it just wasn’t enough as the fell 119 to 103. This was a battle for four quarters, the C’s really stepped up their game versus a formidable foe. The Bulls played without center Joakim Noah, who had a sprained ankle, which moved former flaker Pau Gasol to the starting center spot. It was Kelly Olynyk ‘headband’ game tonight… which doesn’t mean much these days.

The Bulls were lead by Jimmy Butler, this dude is legit you guys. He was next level tonight; he has become arguably the best shooting-guard in the league. Butler finished with 22 points, but his all around game was stellar. Derrick Rose apparently is now a jump shooter, he dropped 29 points. There was no real leader for the C’s, but Jared Sullinger lead the team in points with 20.

The Celtics next game is Monday night versus the Clippers at the Staples Center.
