Isaiah Thomas: Celtics Need To ‘Punch First,’ Shake Habit Of Slow Starts

BOSTON — For much of this season, fourth-quarter execution was a major concern for the Celtics. Boston regularly would build massive leads only to see them crumble down the stretch. The Celtics have gotten considerably better in that department of late, but an alarming new trend has emerged: Rather than wilting down the stretch, Brad Stevens’ club recently has taken far too long...

Your Morning Dump… Where Thomas overcame fear to return to form

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. It was more than just shaking off rust. The spill Thomas took was scary. Players his size propel themselves in the air on daring drives, only to be knocked off balance by a bigger defender, and then sent to the...

Isaiah Thomas took issue with Dwyane Wade staredown

BOSTON — A hard Dwayne Wade foul earlier this month resulted in an eight-game absence and two weeks of debilitating back pain for Isaiah Thomas. But before Thomas returned to the lineup Wednesday for the Boston Celtics, he said that he did not take issue with Wade’s rough block attempt, which took place during a March 9 win over the Miami Heat. “I think you guys did,”...

Celtics Notes: Evan Turner Twirls Triple; Isaiah Thomas Nearing Return

It took Evan Turner 360 games to record his first NBA triple-double. The wait for his second wasn’t nearly as long. Turner reached triple-double territory for the second time in less than a month Monday, compiling 19 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds as his Boston Celtics routed the Brooklyn Nets 110-91 at Barclays Center. “He knows how to play,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens...

Isaiah Thomas still a week from returning

We sure could have used Isaiah Thomas last night. And we’d probably REALLY need him against San Antonio.  But don’t expect him back for that game either. In fact, he might not be back for Sunday or Monday against Detroit or Brooklyn, either. “It was a pretty gruesome fall. He bounced back and played the rest of the game, and hit a couple of big shots to secure that game...

Isaiah Thomas recalls his cold-blooded game-winner from college

As we saw during Monday's win in Miami, Isaiah Thomas has no fear when it comes to taking the big shot. I feel like every time he takes, and makes, a crucial bucket, Thomas should run down the court doing the Sam Cassell's "big balls" dance. Thomas, writing for the Players' Tribune (it's an excellent read), took some time earlier in the week to break down one of his most famous shots...

Your Morning Dump… Where Thomas has been Westbrooking in Boston

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Isaiah Thomas was hit with some digits as he left Celtics practice yesterday. He was told his recent per-36-minute scoring average (28.1 since joining the team) is up there with Russell Westbrook. And since the...

Isaiah Thomas is a 4th-quarter giant (and he really likes being 'the guy')

Last night Isaiah Thomas basically won the game for the Celtics over a stretch of two minutes and 37 seconds in the fourth quarter.  Thomas buried three consecutive three-pointers (with a Jonas Jerebko layup mixed in) to turn a slim 71-68 lead into a double-digit advantage, 82-71.  He scored 14 of his 27 points in the final period. How good has Isaiah Thomas been in 4th? Over 59...

Isaiah Thomas finishes off old team in style

Isaiah Thomas is the darling of Celtics fans today, after he single handedly put away his former team last night in Phoenix. Thomas finished off a 21 point performance with a four-point play and a nasty off hand, twisting layup. Definitely a breath of fresh air in what’s been a mostly dismal season. Check out video below of Thomas’ performance, as well as a condensed version...

Isaiah Thomas apologized to teammates for ejection

Isaiah Thomas’ impressive Boston Celtics debut didn’t have the ending the newly acquired point guard was hoping for. Thomas scored 21 points in 25 minutes in Sunday’s 118-111 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Lakers but was ejected with five minutes to play in regulation after arguing a call with referee Tony Brothers.   This embed is invalid   " /> Thomas...
