The Boston Celtics looked to be buried without their best player in Game 3 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. After all, Isaiah Thomas has been the engine of the great majority of Boston’s comeback victories this season and the All-NBA point guard was unavailable as the Celtics fell behind by more than 20 points. The Celtics were able to put together a fantastic comeback that was punctuated by a game-winning jumper from Avery Bradley and Boston avoided a potential sweep in the process.
Following the game, LeBron James was snipping at a member of the media and the mood for the Cavs was not fantastic, as you may expect. However, Boston’s locker room was decidedly more positive and Chris Forsberg of ESPN brings word that the celebration featured a video call from Thomas.
