Isaiah Thomas tallied 19 points, one rebound, five assists, two steals, a block and six turnovers on 7-of-14 shooting in 31 minutes in the Celtics Game 4 loss vs. the Wizards.
Thomas and the Celtics just couldn’t seem to lock in on defense, giving up 26 straight points in the third quarter. It’s disappointing for the Celtics to not be able to lock down opponents considering they have three above average defenders in Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder and Marcus Smart. Isaiah’s horrible defense has been getting exposed the last two games as the Wizards are just swinging the ball to whoever Isaiah is on, stopping Brad Stevens from hiding him on the court. He has his hands full on defense and thats having an effect on his offensive game. Hopefully he can turn it around in Game 5 on Wednesday.
