Isaiah Thomas says Game 5 versus Wizards is the biggest game that he’ll ever play in

Game 5 between the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards on Wednesday night is undoubtedly a big game for both teams. With the series in a virtual best-of-three now, every win is crucial and could change the complexity of the matchup.

That said, Isaiah Thomas knows the importance of having a stellar performance on the night. He admitted, via Chris Forsberg of ESPN, that he is focused on winning and even called it the biggest game of his life.

“I’m treating it as a must-win. I’m treating it as the biggest game that I’ve ever played. Hopefully, everybody else is treating it like that.”

“I know I gotta play with my foot on the gas. I can’t take it off. I gotta keep going, and I know if I do that, my teammates will follow. I’ll be ready for [Game 5].”

So far in this year’s playoffs, the 5-foot-9 point guard is averaging and incredible 25.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 1.1 steals per game. He has been the catalyst for the Celtics and has made it possible for them to only be two games away from advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals, where the Cleveland Cavaliers are waiting for their next opponent.

If Thomas stays true to his word, it can be expected that he will once again lead the charge for the Celtics and play at his best. He continuously said he is up for the challenge, and we’ve seen the two-time All-Star step up when his teams have needed him most. The confidence he exudes is just what the doctor ordered for the C’s, and could pay dividends for them.

“We just gotta focus in, we gotta lock in. We gotta remain confident in ourselves and know what we did to get us to this point. Everybody has to continue to remain confident.

“It’s going to be a big game. We’re ready for it, though. I’m ready as can be.”
