What Had Happened Was: 4/17/17
Oh, you didn’t know? We got you.
Jimmy Butler scored 30 points, including 23 in the second half, and Bobby Portis poured in 19 to help lead the eighth-seeded Chicago Bulls over the top-seeded Boston Celtics, 106-102, on Sunday night. The Bulls survived a late rally by an emotional Isaiah Thomas, who was playing the day after his 22-year-old sister, Chyna Thomas, was killed in a single-car accident.
Thomas was in tears before the game but continued to play through his grief. Every time he made a play, the fans gave him a deafening round of applause and chanted, “M-V-P!”
Thomas led the Celtics with 33 points, while Al Horford chipped in 19 points, eight assists and seven rebounds for Boston.
