The idea that Rajon Rondo is worth 4.5 points to the Bulls on their home court is just laughable. Kevin Durant, Chris Paul and Stephen Curry have all caused line movements equal to three points to their teams during the regular season. The public perception here is basically saying Rajon Rondo = LeBron James. This might have been true in 2007. Sure, the Celtics could play well and win this game, but the Bulls aren't 4.5 points worse with Rondo out of the lineup. Enjoy the free points with the Bulls.

The Celtics have been completely outplayed by the Bulls in the first two games, both at home, and now their backs are against the wall on the road. They're 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games, but they have a few things in their favor tonight, besides desperation, starting with Bulls catalyst Rajon Rondo being out. That's 17 rebounds, 20 assists and 23 points from the first two games, gone. As a back story, Boston played closer to its true rating on the road this season, going 23-16-2 ATS. Celtics get the win and cover.

Although not technically a win or go home game, it sure feels like one for the Celtics. If they lose this, they go down to 0-3 and face an insurmountable task. Rajon Rondo’s play has been unsustainable, and the Celtics will find they touch in Game 3. Take the points.

Perhaps the Celtics need to get away from home to start playing up to their seeding. I'm projecting Boston to win outright 63 percent of the time and cover 65 percent of the time. This series isn't over. Back Boston.

With the Celtics winning outright in 63 percent of my simulations, it makes sense to play them on the money line at +110. Despite their Game 2 defeat, the Celtics are still 20-10 coming off a loss this season. I'll back them to make this a series.

UNDER 207.5 (-110)

The Boston Celtics edged out the Cleveland Cavaliers for the top seed in the East. Here we are in Round 1 and the Cavaliers are up 3-0 in their series while the Celtics have lost two straight at home and are 0-2 in theirs. Meanwhile, Isaiah Thomas has to continue with the untimely death of his sister, and after going to Tacoma, WA to be with family he has returned for Game 3. It was tough in the first two, but after grieving with family it may be even tougher for him in Game 3. Without his offense, the Celtics have proven to have few options. The only alternative is to come in and buckle down on the defensive end. These teams have a long history of playing ugly defensive games in Chicago, and the last 43 meetings have produced a 27-15-1 mark to the UNDER, producing a grand total of an average of 192.1 points per game. Just three times in the last 15 played here has either team scored 106 points or more. Defense is going to have to get Boson back in this series, and with Thomas a tough choice on the road with what he has dealt with the past couple of days is going to be tough. Play the UNDER in this one.
