Chicago coach Fred Hoiberg stirred the pot a bit after Game 4 of the series between his Bulls and the Celtics by insinuating Boston guard Isaiah Thomas was constantly carrying the basketball.
“Isaiah Thomas is a hell of a player,” Hoiberg said after Game 4. “An unbelievable competitor. He’s a warrior [with] everything he’s going through right now. He had a hell of a game tonight. But when you’re allowed to discontinue your dribble on every possession, he is impossible to guard. He is impossible to guard when you’re able to put your hand underneath the ball and take two or three steps and put it back down. It’s impossible to guard him in those situations.”
Well, after the Bulls’ Game 5 loss, WEEI.com’s Josue Pavon checked back in with Hoiberg on the matter.
