Celtics PG Isaiah Thomas: ‘Not One Man Can Guard Me’

After a dreadful start to their first-round playoff series against the Chicago Bulls, Isaiah Thomas and the Boston Celtics have been able to fight their back into the series on the road. Following two straight losses in Boston, the Celtics have tied the series at 2-2 with two wins in the Windy City.

Following the Game 4 win in Chicago, Thomas talked about his mindset and how his confidence is at an all-time high, via Chris Mannix of The Vertical:

Thomas led the Celtics to victory at the United Center on Sunday matching Bulls star Jimmy Butler point for point with 33. Thomas also added seven assists to his stat line as the Celtics came away with the nine-point win, 104-95.

The All-Star guard is still grieving from the loss of his 22-year-old sister who died in a car accident last week. Thomas talked about where he’s at emotionally as well as mentally and how his teammates have helped, via Mannix:

The first-round series between these two prominent franchises will now head back to Boston where Thomas and company will attempt to get their first win on their home floor in these playoffs.

Game 5 will take place on Wednesday at TD Garden with the winner taking the series lead back to Chicago on Friday in a series-clinching situation. The top-seeded Celtics can drastically change the narrative with a win in Game 5 putting the pressure on the Bulls to counter in Game 6 or stay home in Chicago.
