Celtics lose fifth straight, again fall to Bulls
The Celtics are heading out of March in the same fashion they headed in – like a lamb.
Boston fell hard, 94-80, to the Bulls at United Center Monday night as Chicago’s Mike Dunleavy tallied 22 points. The C’s were poised to seek revenge from losing to Chicago a night earlier in Boston but the Bulls opened the fourth quarter with 13 straight points and coasted the rest of the way.
Brandon Bass led the Celtics with 18 points and nine rebounds.
What they’ll be saying: The Celtics lost their fifth straight game, putting the smile on tank-happy fans. The five game losing streak is currently the longest in the NBA. The Celtics would pick No. 4 overall in the NBA Draft if the season ended today and things stood pat in the lottery. NBADraft.net has the Celtics taking Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart at No. 4.
