Celtics try to finish off Bulls

CHICAGO -- Even after the Boston Celtics dropped the first two games of their Eastern Conference playoff series against the Chicago Bulls, coach Brad Stevens wouldn't let his players drop their heads.

Stevens kept telling his team that finding a way to maintain an even keel -- even in the face of adversity -- would be key. Now, after three consecutive victories, Boston finds itself one win away from advancing out of the first round for the first time in Stevens' tenure.

The Celtics hope to carry the momentum of their 108-97 victory Wednesday night into Game 6, which will be played at the United Center on Friday night. Boston surged to victory Wednesday by ending the game on a 20-4 run despite seeing its leading scorer, guard Isaiah Thomas, shoot 6-for-17 from the field and 1-of-10 from 3-point range.
