Bulls Draw First Blood in Boston

The Chicago Bulls struck first in their opening round series with the Boston Celtics; as the Bulls, led by Derrick Rose's 36 points and 11 dimes, won in overtime 105-103. Rose tied Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's NBA record for points scored in a postseason premiere in a game that had the Bulls looking like the savvy, playoff-seasoned team and not the greenhorns of the second season. Game two is Monday night in Boston. Buckle up, Bulls fans, this is gonna be good.
