Grieving Isaiah Thomas to play Game 2, then fly to funeral

Grieving Isaiah Thomas to play Game 2, then fly to funeral

Basketball fans of both teams at the TD Garden in Boston offered a moment of silence to pay their respects for Thomas' 22-year-old little sister, Chyna Thomas, who died in a auto accident in Washington.

Rajon Rondo (9) is guarded by Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas (4) during the third quarter in game two of the first round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs at TD Garden.

Boston shot 46 percent for game, but too many times was just one-and-done in the half court. But it just seemed like he wasn't completely into the game. "He's been great for me, and hopefully with his playoff experience he can help us to go on a run". Thomas wasn't able to fire up his teammates and get able them going like he usually does, which all is completely understandable.

While both the Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Clippers avoided their second straight defeats at home on Tuesday, the Celtics were again unable to solve Chicago.

"It's key when you have a point guard like him that controls the whole game - you've just got to play", said Dwyane Wade.

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Boston is the favorite in this game, as the Celtics are getting odds of -7 points against the Bulls. Everyone will flip out. Talk shows will have a field day. "I have confidence that he's going to step up and make those shots".

Severe Storms Possible For Thursday's Afternoon Rush Hour
Storm systems that have severe weather and winter elements in them are very common in the Badger State during the spring season. Forecasters say the stormy weather could also affect parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee and Texas.

Bobby Portis probably had a higher standing on the Celtics' draft board two years ago than he did on their scouting report coming into this first-round playoff series, but like a new song that's caught fire in the spring, he's moving up the charts.

Having played for four teams in the last three seasons, the once-All-Star point guard went through his most trying campaign after signing with Chicago as a free agent last summer.

They'll head home to Chicago with a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven set thanks in large part to a vintage performance from Rajon Rondo. Game 1s are notorious for overreaction in the National Basketball Association. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article. "Even though he wasn't screaming or the usual Isaiah, he still went out there and fought hard".

Gordon Hayward scored 20 points and Derrick Favors and Joe Johnson added 13 apiece for the Jazz. Butler also posted eight rebounds and eight assists.

Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 24 points and 15 rebounds. And I think he knows that and I know the same about him. The Bulls scrappiness paid off, and they dropped 23 points on seconds shots on Sunday. Chicago's win also snapped the Celtics' six-game winning streak in such games. Chicago is now 42-41 overall, 17-25 on the road and 43-40 against the spread.
