Denzel Valentine had the assembled media chuckling while he explained why he basically became a spot up shooter throughout most of his rookie season with the Bulls: "That was pretty much the only option," Valentine said after his exit interview with the Bulls' front office. "Unless you want me to go over there and take the ball from somebody. Go over and steal the ball from Jimmy? Nah."

Isaiah Thomas missed all five 3-pointers he took in the first half but the rest of the Celtics made nine of their 14 attempts (64.3 percent). Celtics led by as much as 17 and still up double digits at halftime. Halftime: Celtics 54, Bulls 41.

Dwyane Wade has been a complete non-factor early. 0/3 from the field and continues to look disinterested defensively. Obviously, Bulls have to get more from Wade if they want to have any chance tonight.

If Jimmy Butler's knee is sore he didn't show it in first quarter. Butler's 10 points allowed Bulls to hang around after Boston went up double digits early. Avery Bradley with nine points for Boston. End of 1st: Celtics 30, Bulls 23
