Boston pulls away late, wins Game 5

Isaiah Thomas scores 24 points and Al Horford adds 21 the Celtics outlast the Bulls to take a 3-2 series lead.

NBA

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."
