CHICAGO -- Dwyane Wade got the ball in the corner, took a dribble to his left and stepped back for the dagger 3-pointer. Peter Forsberg Jersey .He made a throat slashing gesture with his right hand after the ball swished through the net and started jumping around as the crowd roared.Wade scored 22 points in a triumphant Chicago debut, Jimmy Butler had 24 and the Bulls won their season opener, beating the Boston Celtics 105-99 on Thursday night.Wade hit the clinching 3 with 26.3 seconds left. Taj Gibson added 18 points and 10 rebounds, and the new-look Bulls got off to a winning start after missing the playoffs last season for the first time since 2008.To be able to make a shot like that and helps us get this win, its like the perfect storm, Wade said.Isaiah Thomas led Boston with 25 points. Avery Bradley had 16, and Jae Crowder 14 points, but the Celtics came up short after opening with a win over Brooklyn the previous night.We lost the game in a fashion we didnt want to lose, Crowder said. I feel like we got punked all night.The Bulls remade their roster in the offseason, jettisoning one hometown superstar and welcoming another when they traded Derrick Rose to New York and signed Wade to a two-year deal worth about $47 million in a move that stunned Miami.The three-time NBA champion and 12-time All-Star is off to a good start with the Bulls after 13 seasons with the Heat. Wade hit 4 of 6 3-pointers in this game after making just 7 of 44 all of last season.Rajon Rondo, signed by Chicago after a resurgent season with Sacramento, added nine assists. Butler had seven rebounds, and the Bulls pounded the Celtics on the glass 55-36.They showed a scrappiness and edge that was missing last season. They were unselfish, passing the ball around, and hit 11 of 25 3-pointers.I think everybodys having fun out there, Butler said.HANGING ONThe Bulls were leading 95-81 midway through the fourth quarter after newcomer Michael Carter-Williams buried a 3 and a floater and Butler hit a floater of his own.The Celtics scored 11 straight to get back into it, a driving layup by Thomas cutting it to 95-92.It was 101-99 when Bostons Jaylen Brown got called for a travel. Wade then nailed that 3 over Bradley to make it a five-point game with 26.3 seconds left, sealing the win for Chicago.Were learning each other, Wade said. Were learning what we have in those types of moments at the end of ballgames and those types of moments.TEMPERS FLAREButler had some heated words with college teammate Crowder late in the first half.Crowder rebounded a miss by Wade -- another Marquette product -- and charged into Butler, leading to a heated exchange.Rondo also got into it with Isaiah Thomas, and all four players got called for technicals.Jaes my guy, Butler said. Its the heat of the moment. Thats whats supposed to happen.TIP-INSCeltics: Boston coach Brad Stevens said Rondo made a good impression on him during their time together in Boston. I thought he was very bright obviously, he understood the game, he can make passes in small areas that I have never seen before, Stevens said. And I tried to coach him like I would coach anybody else. The only thing I would say that you have to be yourself so I coached him like I would coach anybody else.Rondo was working his way back from a torn ACL in his right knee and played in 30 games during Stevens first season -- 2013-14. He started 22 games the following year for Boston before being dealt to Dallas.Bulls: The Bulls signed former Celtics first-round draft pick R.J. Hunter. The guard from Georgia State was let go by Boston this week in what Stevens called a numbers crunch. We had more than 15 NBA players so it was just a matter of time who he was going to get picked up by, Stevens said. I think the way that he plays fits with how they like to play.UP NEXTCeltics: At Charlotte on Saturday.Bulls: Host Indiana on Saturday. Lanny McDonald Jersey . There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season. Chris Bigras Jersey . LeBron James and Chris Bosh didnt need any more. Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night. http:///...ov-avalanche-jersey/ . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. NEW YORK -- A former New York Islanders co-owner who received a 10-year prison term for a fraud conviction had his sentence cut in half Wednesday by a judge who cited his good deeds and cooperation with prosecutors.U.S. District Judge Loretta A. Preska in Manhattan said 69-year-old Paul Greenwood deserved a reduction to five years. She noted that he regularly did charitable acts long before he became embroiled in an over half-billion-dollar financial fraud that spanned a dozen years.The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ordered the resentencing this year, saying another judge wrongly based the 10-year sentence in part on a finding that Greenwood had left some individuals financially devastated.Assistant U.S. Attorney Jessica Masella said 98 to 99 percent of investors money had been recovered, and the government sent the judge a letter citing the role Greenwoods substantial cooperation had played in the prosecution of another defendant, Stephen Walsh. Walsh eventually pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.Greenwood and Walsh owned a controlling interest in the Islanders hockey team from 1992 to 1996.Greenwood pleaded guilty in 2010 to securities fraud, aadmitting cheating charities, schools and others out of hundreds of millions of dollars. Teemu Selanne Jersey. He used a portion of the money to buy collectible teddy bears and to invest in $100,000 horses.According to a 2008 magazine article, Greenwoods collection of teddy bears included more than 1,350 Steiff toys. Among them were 74 bears, plus birds, cats, insects, dinosaurs, kangaroos, seals and squirrels.Prosecutors said Walsh and Greenwood carried out the fraud from 1996 through February 2009, cheating institutional investors in particular.During those years, the men operated a securities business while Greenwood lived in North Salem, Connecticut. The businesses included WG Trading Co. LP, based in Greenwich, Connecticut, and Westridge Capital Management Inc., in Santa Barbara, California.Five years ago, Greenwood moved to Southern Pines, North Carolina, where his lawyer said he regularly tutored veterans and performed other charity work.Speaking by phone from prison Wednesday, Greenwood again apologized.I cannot express deeply enough how sorry I am, he said.
