Boston Celtics Guard Isaiah Thomas Sounds Off On Dirty Play By Raptors
Boston Celtics All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas only had 20 points on Friday night against the Toronto Raptors with Toronto playing tight defense on the MVP candidate. But the line between playing good defense and making a dirty play was crossed by Toronto with forward DeMarre Carrol shoving Thomas to the ground.
After the game IT made sure to voice his displeasure with Carrol and his comments were pretty vicious.
“It was intentional. Did you see it?” Thomas said, per ESPN.com. “Yeah, that’s not a basketball play by any means. Guys who aren’t factors in games do that. It is what it is.
“It’s not like back in the day where you can put your hands up and fight a guy. You can’t do that. But that was not a basketball play whatsoever, and that’s not cool that he did that.”
Take a look at the clip and be a judge yourself.
