Isaiah Thomas says regular season bad blood with Wizards carried over to playoffs
Tensions are at an all-time high between the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards. The two teams have been on each other’s throats throughout their second-round series and after a Game 3 altercation between Kelly Oubre and Kelly Olynyk, it seems like more drama will likely occur between the Wizards and Celtics.
There is a reason for this though as according to Isaiah Thomas, whatever “bad blood” the two teams had for each other during the regular season has spilled over to the playoffs.
From Masslive.com’s Jay King:
“We don’t like them and they don’t like us,” said Isaiah Thomas. “That’s just what it is. Two teams competing. Whatever bad blood we’ve had in the season, it’s carried over to the playoffs.”
It is hard to deny what Thomas is saying. During the regular season, the two teams got into it physically and verbally on the court. And now, that same narrative is happening in the playoffs.
Expect the bad blood between the Celtics and Wizards to continue in Game 4 on Sunday.
