Celtics guard Avery Bradley on rallying from 0-2 hole: "I mean it's kinda been the story of our team, being able to fight through adversity. No matter what we go through, we would overcome it. And I think it's a group of guys, our coaching staff, we believe. We believe in one another. I said it earlier, we went to Chicago knowing that we were going to win those games, not hoping. We knew that we were going to take two games then come here and take care of home. Now it's our job to continue to play the same way and finish the series in Chicago."

The home team may have lost every game in this series to this point, but it feels like the Celtics have a true home-court advantage tonight. Crowd is LOUD.

Isaiah Thomas switched both his headband and shoes at halftime. The other shoes/headband clearly did not have enough buckets.

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Isaiah Thomas didn't register his first field goal until 42.6 seconds remaining in the first half. Avery Bradley (17 points) picked up the scoring slack. Halftime: Boston 52, Chicago 50.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Isaiah Thomas has just one field goal at the half -- and the Celtics lead 52-50. Avery Bradley with 17 at the break.

New Patriots Brandin Cooks and Stephon Gilmore (and QB Jimmy Garoppolo, too ) at TD Garden for Game 5 of Celtics vs. Bulls.

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Celtics ended the first quarter on an 11-2 run, including outscoring the Bulls by six after Isaiah Thomas went to the bench. Chicago led by as much as eight but Boston up 23-20 after 12 minutes.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Celtics couldn't make a 3 early in the quarter, but Avery Bradley gives them spark on both ends. So underrated. Boston leads after first despite going 3-12 from deep.
