The Celtics lose to the Hawks, 110-83, Isaiah Thomas calls for help from his teammates, and the Red Sox top the Braves, 11-4.

Isaiah Thomas says ‘other guys have to step up’ for Celtics to win: “It should be a sign of disrespect to my teammates to put two on the ball every time I have it,” Isaiah Thomas said. “Other guys have to step up and make plays, that’s what it comes down to. If they try and do it again in Game 6, it comes down to other guys making plays. I’m just going to try and get the ball out as quickly as possible, out of the trap, out of the two or three guys on me. But other guys have to make shots, and other guys have to make plays for us to win.” (WEEI.com)

And when Thomas left Boston’s 110-83 Game 5 loss with an ankle injury in the fourth quarter, surely there was concern. (The Boston Globe)
