The Celtics host the Bulls tonight at the Garden (7:30 tip), in the 4th and final meeting between the clubs this season. So far this year the Bulls have won 2 of the 3 match-ups, including the only game in Boston. Here's what rounds 1-3 have looked like. Nov. 12th: Celtics 101, Bulls 95 - Celtics win in Chicago behind Rajon Rondo's near triple-double (20 points, 10 assists, 9 boards). Luol Deng goes for 27 and 10 in a losing effort.

Almost a month later this one still hurts. The Celtics fell to the Bulls in overtime on a last second Marco Belinelli floater, only after a terrible jump ball call allowed the Bulls to send the game to OT. This was the 2nd loss in a row for the C's during ...
