Isaiah Thomas had a rough Friday night. Besides missing 11 of his 17 shots in the 10-point loss to the Raptors, Mr 4th Quarter took a flagrant foul from DeMarre Carroll in the first half, which led to a lot of finger-pointing, sweet nothings and even a couple of PEW PEWs from Thomas finger gun.
“It was intentional. Did you see it?” Said Thomas after the game. “Yeah, that’s not a basketball play by any means. Guys who aren’t factors in games do that. It is what it is. It’s not like back in the day where you can put your hands up and fight a guy. You can’t do that. But that was not a basketball play whatsoever, and that’s not cool that he did that.”
An unapologetic Carroll had this to say after the game.
“We can’t let people think that we’re soft … Sometimes, we’ve got to take a stand,” Carroll told Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun. “We can’t just let teams roll over on us.”
