The Washington Wizards put that thang on Isaiah Thomas in the second half of Sunday’s 121-102 win as they knotted the series up at 2 apiece. They gave ole boy the blues limitin’ him to just three shot attempts in the second half as he missed two on them. He had two measly points in the second half after startin’ the game with five 3-pointers in the first 13 minutes of the game. Ole boy finished with 19 points in Game 4 after bein’ limited to only 13 in the Game 3 loss.
He wasn’t too happy after the game givin’ the media his account of the foolishness. Here’s what ole boy had to say, “They were very physical. The refs were allowing them to hold and grab and do all those things. I think, especially in that third quarter, I might have hit the ground five or six straight times, and I’m not the one that likes hitting the ground. So I think it got to be called differently.
“I’m not saying that’s the reason we lost. They went on a 26-0 run and we can’t have that on the road. But I can’t be allowed to be held and grabbed every pin-down, every screen. And I don’t shoot one free throw. I play the same way each and every night. So I think that has to change.”
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Bruh…I’ve been sayin’ since the playoffs started that boyz in Boston have a problem because their best player is 5’9″ and that’s bein’ generous. As they play better teams his shot selection will become more and more limited and boyz will become more anymore physical with him.
All you needed to do is look back to the Bulls/Heat series of 2011 playa! Derrick Rose was comin’ off of a stellar MVP season and the Bulls were the No.1 seed in the East. Ole boy jumped all over the Heat in Game 1 puttin’ up 28 points and completely controllin’ the floor! Then it was, “Houston we have a problem!” They leaned on that dun for four straight games and eliminated them in five!
Why because their best player was only 6’3″ and he could only get shots by takin’ boyz to the rack. D. Rose’s first step back then was a beast. Now fast forward to a dun that’s 5’8″ tryin’ to get shots when they’re leanin’ on him and double and triple teamin’ him?
The game plan is to make the rest of the team make shots to beat them because they aren’t about to let this little cat beat them. He can’t pass the ball because he can’t see over the defenders. Why? Because he’s too short! He can’t get off shots! Why? Because he’s too short! Especially now that the game plan has shifted to solely keepin’ him from beatin’ them.
Even if they are able to survive this series. He’s in trouble in the Eastern Conference Finals because he’s got to deal with Kyrie who’s 6’3″ and far more athletic than he is. And ask Derrick Rose how comfortable it was to have LeBron leanin’ on him for four games.
That’s the foolishness that I’m talkin’ about bruh! LeBron is 6’8″ 270lbs. that can guard all five and play all five. So he will switch off and guard that dun from time to time. That’s the match up problem that gives boyz the blues with him on the floor. It’s not fair bruh!
The very last thing that Isaiah Thomas should have done after Game 4 was to complain about bein’ abused with physical play because they know that he doesn’t like it and it’s goin’ to be even worse in Game 5. When he said that he doesn’t like to hit the ground. Well he’s goin’ to hit the ground the rest of the way playa. “Houston we have a problem!” Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
