“It was the heat of the battle,” 5’9 Isaiah Thomas said about his face-to-chest encounter with 6’11 Gorgui Dieng during the Celtics comeback victory against the Wolves on Monday. “We talked about it after, and he loves my game, I love his, so we’re good.”
After being outscored 31-12 in the 4th quarter, I’m pretty sure Dieng, who had 20 points in 10 rebounds in the loss, and his teammates aren’t so so good right now. This loss was their 5th in their last six games.
As for Thomas and the Celtics, this was the second game in a row they came through in the 4th quarter to pull off a win.
