Recently traded Isaiah Thomas scores 21 points in his return to Phoenix as a Boston Celtic


Isaiah Thomas didn't just help the Celtics beat the Suns 115-110 on Monday, but he also sent a glare to the direction of his former team.

Despite outrebounding the Celtics (50-42) and out-blocking them (7-1), the Suns somehow gave up 115 points to one of the worst offensive teams in the league. In the three losses prior to this one, the Suns surrendered 127, 111 and 112 points.

"It's a combination of all kinds of things - taking pride in guarding a guy by yourself, pick-and-rolls or just throwing it around and we're closing out hard. It's almost like we're playing to keep them in front of us and let them do whatever they want. We need to start getting after it that...

No complaining, foolishness, and please be professional.
