"I told the guys that sometimes a road trip can bring you together — you know, an early road trip like this against two good quality teams (the Celtics are in Chicago tomorrow night) who’ve been playing well. Maybe this is just what the doctor ordered."
The Celtics better not take the Bulls too lightly. They aren't exactly killing teams that are missing their best players this year.
