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.”

Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
