Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas said his team cannot overreact to Wednesday’s lopsided loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. “We can’t panic. It’s only one game,” Thomas said after Boston’s off-day workout Thursday. “One game. They took care of business, and we just gotta take care of business in Game 2.”

 Told he sounded confident in his team’s ability to bounce back, Thomas smiled and declared, “I’m very confident.” Pressed on why, he kept things light. “I believe in these guys. We’re not scared of Cleveland. They’re not the Monstars. They’re not on ‘Space Jam,'” Thomas said. “They lace up their shoes just like us. They just happened to play better than us in Game 1. We just gotta protect [our] home court in Game 2 and get the win.”

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul will miss Saturday’s Game 6 of the Western Conference finals at Golden State with a right hamstring strain, the team announced Friday.

Paul will travel with the Rockets to Oakland, California, for the game, coach Mike D’Antoni said, and will be re-evaluated after the team returns to Houston.

“It’s obviously not something we wanted,” D’Antoni said before Friday’s practice. “I hate it for him above all. He’s practically won us the past two games. But it’s a great opportunity for other guys, and we have plenty to choose from. We’ll be ready.”

Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said there’s an “overwhelming likelihood” that the team will keep its No. 1 overall pick and not trade it away.

McDonough made the comment Friday after the first of what will be many pre-draft workouts of players on the Suns’ practice court.

The leading candidates for that No. 1 pick in June’s NBA draft almost certainly will be worked out privately, with the exception of Luka Doncic, the European sensation who still is playing in Spain.
