Isaiah Thomas: ‘Bad Blood’ With Wizards


After a Game 3 that featured eight technical fouls and three ejections, Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas admitted that bad blood lingers with the Washington Wizards.

“We don’t like them and they don’t like us. That’s just what it is,” Thomas said after the Wizards pummeled the Celtics 116-89 in Game 3 of an Eastern Conference semifinal series Thursday night at the Verizon Center. The Celtics lead the best-of-seven series 2-1. Game 4 is Sunday night in Washington. “Whatever bad blood we’ve had in the season, it’s carried over to the playoffs,” Thomas said. “We’re just competing and trying to win, and they did that today. We took care of business at home, now we just gotta try to get Game 4.”
