Bulls Rout Celtics 111-97 to Take 2-0 Series Lead in 2017 NBA Playoffs
Since the NBA moved to a 16-team playoff format in 1984, a No. 1 seed has only been eliminated in the first round five times.
The Boston Celtics have their work cut out to avoid becoming the sixth.
Jimmy Butler scored 22 points and Rajon Rondo nearly went for a triple-double, as the Chicago Bulls earned a 111-97 victory in Game 2 Tuesday night to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. The teams will travel to Chicago for Game 3 on Friday and Game 4 on Sunday.
