Game 4: Third quarter update

After three, the Celtics [1] have a 70-65 lead. Following two breathtaking games in Boston, and a blowout in Chicago, the Celtics and Bulls have settled in for a grind-it-out playoff game. No one is shooting the ball well, but the Celtics have been doing a good job on the defensive glass and limiting Chicago’s second-half points.

The C’s started the second half slowly, but picked it up at the end of the quarter with Paul Pierce [2] scoring the final seven points of the quarter. Rajon Rondo [3] continued his torrid play. He has 16 points, eight rebounds and six assists. Kendrick Perkins [4] has also had a strong game with 15 points and seven rebounds. Perk’s play has made up for Big Baby Davis who is just 1-for-8 from the floor.

This is make or break time for the Bulls, and for the Celtics it’s a chance to take command of the series.
