Isaiah Thomas appeared determined to help the Boston Celtics get off to a strong start in Game 2 against the Chicago Bulls.
Less than two minutes into the first quarter, the 5-foot-8 guard jumped in front of 7-foot Robin Lopez to grab a defensive rebound.
Thomas then took the ball the full length of the floor and beat Lopez -- along with Rajon Rondo and Nikola Mirotic -- to the hoop.
Thomas started the game with seven of Boston's first 11 points. He opened the game by scoring a 3-pointer on his first shot.
