Monday night's contest between the 4-2 Chicago Bulls and the 3-3 Boston Celtics was a matchup of two teams who have looked quite different in the early going this season.
The Celtics started the season looking lethargic, while the Bulls have looked surprisingly confident without their floor general, Derrick Rose.
However, Monday night provided the C's with their finest win of the season to date. It was the Celtics who would prevail by a score of 101-95, in a game that will certainly provide Doc Rivers' bunch with confidence moving forward.
The Bulls made it a game late, surging back and outscoring the Celtics 25-19 in the fourth quarter, but they couldn't hit big shots when they needed them in the closing minutes.
In a matchup of two of the league's stingiest defenses, the Celtics were able to come out on top, thanks to yet another stellar all-around performance from point guard Rajon Rondo.
