There were a lot of things Celtics star Isaiah Thomas was not happy about following his team's 121-102 blowout loss to the Wizards in Game 4 on Sunday night, a defeat that locked the series at 2-2.
Chief among his complaints was with the referees and how he didn't shoot a single free throw.
But Thomas was also not pleased with his teammates.

The reason why was their body language. For the second straight game, the Celtics were blown out, and Thomas didn't like how some of his teammates responded.
"We've gotta be confident. For whatever reason today, there were guys with their heads down after missing shots. We're getting the right shots. If you miss then just continue to shoot. We have to remain confident," he said.
Thomas continued and suggested his teammates were a bit rattled by the moment.
"You've gotta step into it and shoot it like you just made three in a row. This is not the time to be shook," he said. "This is not the time to shy away from the opportunity. This is the time to take advantage of it. If you're open, we expect you to make it and shoot it with confidence."
Thomas has for the most part enjoyed a strong series individually, as he's averaging 29.5 points. But these comments came after he scored just two points in the second half as the Wizards ran away with a win. It might not be the best timing, but clearly he felt like he had to get that off his chest.
