Isaiah Canaan Talks Trash To Isaiah Thomas, Later Gets Laid Out By Olynyk

Players in this post:
Rajon Rondo Dwyane Wade Isaiah Thomas

You can’t blame Isaiah Canaan for getting excited about his playoff buckets. In Game 5, the “Rondo Replacement” matched his 13 points from Game 4 and now has the same amount of points in his last two games as he had in every other game in 2017 combined.

I wonder if Kelly Olynyk was thinking about Canaan’s trash talking when he laid him out in the fourth quarter with this screen, which led to three free throws by Thomas after getting fouled and Dwyane Wade getting hit with a tech.
