Chicago fans boo when Bears draft pick Mitch Trubisky photo shown on JumboTron at United Center. Turns to a few cheers when they realize he's actually here.

Mitchell Trubisky was just shown on the video boards inside the United Center, and a chorus of boos initially greeted him. Wow.

Isaiah Thomas missed all five 3-pointers he took in the first half but the rest of the Celtics made nine of their 14 attempts (64.3 percent). Celtics led by as much as 17 and still up double digits at halftime. Halftime: Celtics 54, Bulls 41.

Dwyane Wade has been a complete non-factor early. 0/3 from the field and continues to look disinterested defensively. Obviously, Bulls have to get more from Wade if they want to have any chance tonight.

Brad Stevens knows the Bulls will not go quietly. "We've talked [since Game 5] how we need to play our best game yet. We know it's going to be really hard. We know that there's a lot of good players over there, that we were lucky to win, I thought, Game 5. But we know how hard it's going to be. So our guys are focused on trying to do their best to play well."

ESPN Stats and Information  

It's been a tale of two series for Jimmy Butler, who has cooled off after helping the Bulls take an early 2-0 series lead over the Celtics. He's been dealing with soreness in his left knee but is expected to play in Game 6.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Boston is one win away from advancing out of the first round for the first time in coach Brad Stevens' tenure. But ESPN's BPI gives the Bulls a slight edge at home.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Rajon Rondo will not play in Game 6, and that is not good news for a Bulls team that has struggled without him on the court against the Celtics.
