Isaiah Thomas wants to make it clear that Marcus Smart flops

Isaiah Thomas wants to make it clear that Marcus Smart flops

When you know, you know.

Washington Wizards starting point guard Isaiah Thomas gave his take on former teammate Marcus Smart's reputation for flopping. Spoilers: he flops.

Thomas, who is returning to Boston on Wednesday for the first time as a starter, was teammates with Smart during his run with the Celtics from 2014-17. He didn't hold back from interrupting reporters to make sure everyone knows that Smart flops. (See the entire sequence play out in the video above.)

Despite being familiar with Smart, don't expect Thomas to know everything about how the Celtics will prepare for the Wizards. Thomas pointed out that only two of his former teammates are still with the team.

His history with Boston means a lot to Thomas, but his only focus on Wednesday will be earning the victory.

"The love is genuine between me and the city," Thomas said. "Hopefully we can just win the game. That's the most important."

Wizards @ Celtics Game 9: Time, TV Channel, Live stream, how to watch

Beating the Boston Celtics is always special, but this one likely means a little more for Washington Wizards point guard Isaiah Thomas.

Thomas will be returning to Boston for the first time as a starter, where he became a scoring sensation and MVP candidate during the 2016-17 season.

The Wizards will be looking for a win against the Celtics, as the team has played to the tune of a 2-6 record so far in the young NBA season. Boston, on the other hand, has won seven straight after dropping their season opener.
