Thomas Watched Film on Pierce-LeBron for Game 7


Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas prepared for his first Game 7 by watching film of an old Paul Pierce-LeBron James duel.

“I thought about it a lot,” he said. “All night last night and today I watched 2008 Paul Pierce vs. LeBron and how special that game was. Two superstars going at it, guarding each other. It was a historic game. I definitely did my studying and I knew it was going to be a big-time game tonight. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy at all.”
