Celtics stagger on without Thomas; guard may need surgery

One day after the Boston Celtics announced Isaiah Thomas will miss the rest of the postseason due to a hip injury, his teammates reacted to the news.

Following the Cavaliers' 117-104 victory over the Celtics in Game 1, Isaiah Thomas had an interesting quote about getting blown out.

If you still can't hear the song, Cleveland Browns rookie Myles Garrett is at Quicken Loans Arena and confirmed the Cavs' musical choice.

The Cavaliers have done whatever they wanted thus far, and there's no reason to believe that will change as they head back to Cleveland for games three and four.

"I didn't have it", James said. Whether that happens could be determined by how James responds in Game 4.

"We need to rally around and play for him and play for our team", he said, "because our season is on the line".

This is the eighth outbreak of Ebola virus disease in DRC since its discovery in 1976. More than 28,600 people were infected and more than 11,300 died.

Kevin Love was the target of some rough play under the basket late in the third quarter of Game 3 against Boston, as Celtics forward Jonas Jerebko tossed the Cavs big man to the floor. "He didn't shoot the ball well, and we still had a 20-point lead".

It was James' lowest point total in the playoffs since he scored seven for Miami in the 2014 conference finals against in, and before Boston's comeback, James was 49-0 in playoff games his team led by at last 20 points. And speaking of rare, even leaving aside the odds and the arc both teams were tracing, there are a few other things that should not have happened in Game 3, but did.

"We've got guys that have chips on their shoulders", Stevens added. One of the things about Marcus is he's going to play regardless of the score.

"You obviously hear people saying that it's all about how you respond, and we don't feel like people believed in us and counted us out", Bradley said.

The stunning loss in Game 3 isn't likely to prevent Cleveland from eventually winning this series, but it did cost the team a chance to keep pace with Golden State for the all-time record of 11 straight wins to start a postseason. Thomas got through the first half of Friday's 44-point loss in Game 2 before the team shut him down to avoid further injury. "They got some open shots and moved around freely". I dont flop. I had to tell him.

"I didn't have it", James said afterward, and that was no understatement. In the first half, the Cavs made 14 three-pointers - seven by Love, four by Irving, two by J.R. Smith and one by Kyle Korver. "He just made it over and over. That's all I've got to say about my performance". So I thought he was pretty darned good. "As good as they are and they are tremendous, that might have been the best game I've ever seen a team play against us", he said.
