Celtics' Isaiah Thomas: Shot is off early in Game 1 loss

Thomas delivered 17 points (7-19 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 10 assists, one rebound and one steal from 38 minutes in Wednesday's 117-104 Game 1 blow out loss to Cleveland.

Most of Thomas' stats came in the second half when the game was well in hand for the Cavaliers. Thomas was a big part of the Celtics missing 11 of their first 14 shots of the game. One might wonder if the diminutive point guard is wearing down. He's averaged only 22.0 points over his past five playoff games, well below his regular season 28.9 point average. Mentally, he still must be dealing with the tragic loss of his sister. Physically, he's facing more fierce, playoff game double teams than he saw during the regular season. Thomas and the C's will look to bounce back Friday at home for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
