Celtics Notes: Isaiah Thomas Makes Strides; No More Cupcakes For C’s

This looked more like the Isaiah Thomas we’re used to seeing. Thomas was far from perfect Friday against the New York Knicks — his second game back after a bruised lower back sidelined him for eight — but he looked far more composed than he did during Wednesday’s loss to the Miami Heat. The Boston Celtics point guard went just 4-for-13 from the floor (including 2-for-7...

Thomas scores 18, Celtics hold off Knicks for 95-92 win

NEW YORK (AP) Isaiah Thomas scored 18 points and Jae Crowder had 17 points and nine rebounds as the Boston Celtics held off a late rally by the New York Knicks for a 95-92 win on Friday night. Brandon Bass scored 16 points, Evan Turner had 15 and Avery Bradley finished with 10 for Boston. Andrea Bargnani tied a season high with 25 points for the Knicks. The Celtics led by as many...

Isaiah Thomas says he felt good, needs to play better. But should he even have been in the game?

After last night's extremely disappointing 93-86 home loss to the Heat, Isaiah Thomas said the following about his first game back in action (via CSNNE's Jimmy Toscano): My body felt good, other than when I fell one time it hurt. It was just all the other things, getting into the flow of things. Getting my rhythm back. I just wasn't decisive at all. It was tough for me, probably...

Your Morning Dump… Where Isaiah Thomas shouldn’t have played last night

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. Thomas endured a lackluster return while putting up four points on 2-of-7 shooting over 20 minutes during Wednesday’s 93-86 loss to the Miami Heat. He turned the ball over three times and missed three free...

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 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...
