Bulls/Celtics: Two Games In, What To Expect From Here

If I was the Boston Celtics, I'd be a little afraid.

When it takes a buzzer beating three-pointer to tie up the series after two games at the Garden, I wouldn't be looking forward to playing at the United Center either. 

This first-round series between the Bulls and Celtics has proved to be the most entertaining, intense, and exciting series of the playoffs so far. 

Seeing guys like Big Baby Davis, ROTY Derrick Rose, Ben Gordon, and one of the best shooters the NBA has ever seen in Ray Allen, it's hard to look away when these two teams are playing.

In game one Derrick Rose started building his undoubtable future star status with a rookie record 36 points in his first ever professional postseason game, and in game two Ben Gordon introduced himself to the Celtics scoring 42 points and not missing a single shot regardless of the defense or where on the court he was, or so it seemed.  

Oh yeah, and can't forget the name that's making every Bulls fan in Chicago cringe, Ray Allen. Rajon Rondo is also proving he belongs on the court along side three superstars like Allen, Pierce and Garnett. 

If we've learned anything from this series so far it's that the Bulls are a lot more competitive and have a much larger chance of winning this series than many people predicted, and that the Boston Celtics are not the championship Boston Celtics from a year ago without Kevin Garnett. 

Now, what's to expect as this series shifts to Chicago? I'd say more of the same. 

I wouldn't predict any blowouts in the near future of this series but just some more very competitive, enjoyable games to watch. 

If Chicago can win a couple back at home you can put a period at the end of this series, in Chicago's favor. I would be very surprised if the Bulls don't take at least one game in Chicago if not both.

Boston needs to at least split the games in the United Center if they want to continue their pursuit at a championship repeat because you better believe the Bulls are ready to win another one when they return to Boston.

I originally predicted Boston in 6, but from what I've seen from this series so far, it could potentially be the other way around now.

College basketball has been the more popular game of basketball these past couple of years, but a series like this first-rounder is what is switching it back around.

Don't look away from this series folks, you'll regret it if you do.
