Fred Hoiberg said Isaiah Canaan will start again Friday

Fred Hoiberg said Isaiah Canaan will start again Friday

He did make a strong debut in Game 4 of the series, scoring 13 points in 34 minutes off the bench, but his lack of experience in these types of situations will make for a fascinating story as the ball goes in the air.

Al Horford had 21 points, nine assists and seven rebounds for the Celtics.

Chicago Bulls guard Isaiah Canaan sticks out his tongue as he taunts Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas during the second quarter.

The Bulls, who are 7-3 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last 10 home games against the Celtics, will need better three-point shooting than they have had for most of the series. But the 2016-17 Celtics seem determined to reach the second round for the first time since the Big Three led them there in 2012.

If the Chicago Bulls lose tonight's Game 6 matchup against the Boston Celtics, their season is over.

The Bulls will now try to get a similar boost with Chicago coach Fred Hoiberg saying he will start Isaiah Canaan at point guard in place of Jerian Grant.

Here are five things to watch out for when the Boston Celtics and the Chicago Bulls meet at 8 p.m. tonight at United Center.

Jimmy Butler struggled throughout the game as he only finished with 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting.

Dwyane Wade was called on a technical after his outcry that a foul should have been called on a hard Kelly O screen.

Game six is in Atlanta on Friday.

Boston was +14 with Olynyk in the game and +12 with Smart, and they were two huge factors in the win.

The Bulls cut it to nine before Horford got loose for a dunk, Wade missed a 3-pointer and then Horford fed Jae Crowder for a layup that made it 108-95 with 99 seconds to play. Utah outscored the Clippers in the paint in both games by a combined 92-64.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Joe Johnson.

There are no more excuses to turn to for a Bulls team on the brink of being eliminated. They were bullied, bodied and put out of their comfort zone. If we would have talked mid-season that they would be hanging in there with a one seed in the playoffs I would have said you are insane. His minutes should increase from the 18 he played. I had success in the first half of staying in front and making every shot tough. "Teams going home and hopefully holding serve and forcing this to a Game 7 where anything can happen", he noted. How will that effect this new season for these teams is the question.
