Isaiah Thomas scored 33 points during Boston's Game 1 win over Washington on Sunday, adding five 3-pointers, nine assists, one rebound, one block and two turnovers in 38 minutes. Thomas had his front tooth knocked out fighting around a screen during the first quarter, after which he picked up his tooth, handed it to one of the Boston trainers and proceeded to drain back-to-back triples. IT4 put in averages of 27.8 points, 2.3 triples, 8.0 assists, 4.0 boards and 3.3 turnovers through four games against the Wizards during the regular season, so he should be big in this second-round series.

Isaiah Thomas is ready to go for Game 1 vs. the Wizards on Sunday. Thomas attended his sister's funeral on Saturday in Washington state, but he's already back with the team after a late night flight and was one of the first players on the floor for warmups. The Celtics have been nothing but supportive and told him to take the day off if he's not feeling up to it, but the All-Star PG will continue to play in his sister's honor the rest of the way.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Whether due to external factors or the Bulls’ defense, Thomas shot a below-average 43.0% from the field and 20.0% from deep in the opening series. Fortunately, Washington’s defense is much worse, which should help Thomas in either case. After the break, the Wizards were 27th in defensive rating (110.7), 29th in opponent FG% (48.4%) and 3P% (38.8%) while the Bulls were third (102.2), fourth (44.4%), and first (30.7%), respectively. He’s in a great spot to produce the monster game we’re all rooting for.

Avery Bradley said he knows Isaiah Thomas will be prepared for Game 1 on Sunday. In case you missed it, coach Brad Stevens said he's fine with the idea of Thomas staying with his family following his sister's funeral on Saturday in Washington state. The sense around the team is that Thomas will be back and ready to go. While he didn't bust out in the first round, he was efficient in the second half against the Bulls with a 64.3 true shooting percentage.

Coach Brad Stevens said that if Isaiah Thomas decides Saturday that his sister's funeral is too much and that he can't play in Game 1 against the Wizards on Sunday, he's totally fine with that. Following the win on Friday, Thomas will take a private jet to Seattle with general manager Danny Ainge. Thomas left the locker room early on Friday night and may already be en route. Thomas hasn't quite been right and is playing for his sister the rest of the way, but just about everyone is rooting for him. Expect an update on his status Saturday night or Sunday morning.

Isaiah Thomas scored 12 points with five rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Bulls on Friday. We still haven't seen the MVP-caliber IT in the playoffs, but he still gets a ton of credit to play after a family tragedy. Al Horford talked about how the team wasn't right to start this series while Avery Bradley said it took some time to play the way they've been accustomed to. He'll have his hands full against John Wall for Game 1 in Boston on Sunday.

Isaiah Thomas is expected to travel home to Tacoma, Washington, after Game 6 on Friday night to attend his sister's funeral. It's unbelievable that Thomas has been able to play as well as he has during this first-round series vs. Chicago considering the incredibly sad situation he and his family is dealing with. If Bulls win on Friday and force a Game 7, it would be played on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET in Boston. Or, if both the Wizards and Celtics win on Friday, then Game 1 of the Boston vs. Washington series would be played on Sunday. Thus, Thomas may have to rush back east on Saturday night.

Isaiah Thomas scored a team-high 33 points during Sunday's Game 4 road victory, going 10-of-21 from the field and 12-of-13 from the FT line. Thomas made one 3-pointer while chipping in seven assists, four rebounds and one steal, and as usual he was the Celtics' savior offensively. He dominated in the second half, despite battling foul trouble, and he earned a technical foul for accurately shouting "You can't guard me!" at Bulls guard Michael Carter-Williams. He's playing freely, with MVP-like swagger, which is an ominous sight for Bulls fans.
