Isaiah Thomas says tonight’s Game 5 battle between the Celtics and Wizards is the biggest game of his career.

Thomas says Boston is facing a “must-win” situation with the East semis series deadlocked at 2-2.

The All-Star point guard struggled in a 121-102 Game 4 loss in Washington, and complained about a lack of foul calls.

Per the Boston Herald:

The biggest “must-win game” of Thomas’ basketball life, according to the Celtics point guard, will be tomorrow night’s Game 5 of the NBA Eastern Conference semifinals against the Wizards.

 

Thomas gave a telling response when asked if he had ever played in a more meaningful game.

 

“Probably not,” Thomas said when asked if he’d ever played in a more meaningful game. “Game 5’s are huge in a playoff series and we have got to protect home court, and I’m treating it as a must win.

 

“I’m treating it as the biggest game I’ve ever played in. Hopefully everybody else is treating it like that.”
