Mozgov has four blocks & Isaiah Thomas keeps driving and stopping for pull-up jumpers. Moz should control paint w/ C's lack of size.
I'm not sure about that foul on JR. It looked like Isaiah Thomas just lost the ball on the way up
Dellavedova isn't great, but I enjoy how much he appreciates trying to body Isaiah Thomas.
JR is 0-for-4 and just fouled Isaiah Thomas shooting a three. Not a good start for Smith.
So much for Tommy Heinsohn’s green glasses. He voted Budenholzer as Coach of Year & Stevens 2nd. (Tommy did vote Isaiah Thomas for 6th Man.)
