The C's wound up losing that series in six games. The Celtics, to their credit, have made clear that they support Thomas and he should take the time he needs, even if it means missing games. "Tonight, our job was easy".
Again, this isn't to pin the Celtics' deficit on IT - Boston has bigger problems than their best player's awful defense. "But to be sitting on the sideline a few minutes before the game, crying, that makes me uncomfortable for him", Barkley continued.
"I don't think there's any question that people around here have a great affinity for him". Bradley Beal had 22 points, and the Wizards got enough from their top players to offset 25 points from Atlanta's Dennis Schroder and 19 from Paul Millsap.
"I had the luxury of playing with a guy named LeBron". "I just try to lock in and.do what I can for my team".
Offensively, the Bulls fired on all cylinders, shooting 51.1 percent.

Boston Celtics' star player, Isaiah Thomas, had an emotional first round matchup against the Chicago Bulls after finding out his sister's death just hours before the game. "One thing I learned about this team is through adverse situations, this team sticks together".
"Everybody's putting in each work, watching film, working on their game", Butler said.
Game 3 is Thursday night in Milwaukee. Can Boston recover in Game 2 on April 18? The Bulls didn't trail in the second half, using a 10-0 scoring run - which included eight points from Wade - to build a 19-point lead in the fourth quarter on the way to the convincing win. Butler, who played alongside Thomas on the past two Eastern Conference All-Star teams, said he also was in awe of what Thomas was able to do. The Celtics' best rebounder is probably Al Horford, who definitely doesn't have the size or strength to battle with Lopez for the boards. Isaiah Thomas put up 33 points and six assists, playing a day after his sister was killed in a auto accident.
Chicago also pulled down 20 offensive rebounds and converted 23 second-chance points to Boston's 15. Last year, he was allowed to miss a game to be at the bedside of Andrew Smith, who played for Stevens at Butler. He was a minus-20.
