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.”
