Rondo out again as Bulls visit Celtics for Game 5

BOSTON -- When the Boston Celtics last saw their TD Garden home floor, they had just dropped the first two games of their series with the Chicago Bulls and were in danger of being a top seed upset by a No. 8 seed.

But Chicago guard Rajon Rondo, who dominated his old team in Game 2 after a decent performance in the opener, broke his right thumb in the second victory, instantly changing the series that resumes with Game 5 on Wednesday night.

The Celtics won the two games in Chicago, evening the series, recapturing the home-court advantage and creating in effect a best-of-three.
