Rajon Rondo believes the Chicago Bulls would have kept defeating the Boston Celtics in the playoffs if he hadn't broken his thumb.

"Honestly, yeah," Rondo said when asked if the Bulls would have swept the Celtics.

"It was very frustrating, especially the way we were clicking at the time," Rondo said. "We had a good chemistry going and I thought we were some making great adjustments in Games 1 and 2."

The Bulls struggled to manufacture efficient offense once Rondo was hurt.
