Recap: Tristan Thompson killed the Celtics tonight

Recap: Tristan Thompson killed the Celtics tonight

I’m talking about Tristan Thompson and his 5 offensive rebounds, all of which seemed to come at crucial moments when the Celtics needed to have a stop. Thompson’s clutch hustle, LeBron James 30 points and Timofey Mozgov’s 5 [...]
