This was a tough way to lose.
The Cavaliers defended this almost perfectly. They crowded Isaiah Thomas and made him pass the ball with just a few seconds left.
Unfortunately, Avery Bradley stroked a 3-pointer over Iman Shumpert after Thomas passed it to him to win the game for the Celtics.
Via NBA TV:
The Cavs play again tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. vs. the Pelicans.
