It was Avery Bradley, among others, who went over to console Thomas at the time. Bradley then delivered a heartfelt postgame message after the Celtics rallied to win Game 3 in Chicago.
Isaiah played a clip from [Kevin Garnett] before the game, and it kind of got us going a little bit,Bradley told ESPN on the sideline. KG said some inspirational words for us, and it reminded us — Celtics, we’re always supposed to be the hardest playing team every single night.
And we’re supposed to use Isaiah’s family — use that as inspiration and come out and play hard for him and his family. And that’s what we did tonight.
Thomas later released his first statement through the Celtics’ PR team, thanking everyone from fans to teammates and the organization for their support in this trying time of his life.
Boston originally picked up Cleveland’s 2016 first-rounder in a three-team trade (including Brooklyn) that freed up cap room for the Cavaliers to sign LeBron James. The Cavs shipped Jarrett Jack and Sergey Karasev to the Nets and sent Tyler Zeller and that first-rounder to the Celtics.

Cleveland then sent that pick to Phoenix, which selected a promising young forward Skal Labissiere in last year’s NBA draft at 27th overall.
Now, that trade has the potential to bite Cleveland in the cheeks. The reason: LaVar Ball, Lonzo’s outspoken father, wants a sneaker company to license his Big Baller Brand. He wants a partnership that includes Lonzo, as well his other two sons Liangelo and LaMelo, who have each committed to UCLA.

But they’re not ready for that because they’re not used to that model. But hey, the taxi industry wasn’t ready for Uber, either.
