Thursday marked the day that many NBA stars had circled on their calendars. The All-NBA teams were named, and for stars like Klay Thompson who will be free agents this summer $30 million dollars were at stake. During a press conference after the Warriors morning practice, Thompson received the news that he did not make one of the three All-NBA teams.
The Celtics showed no rust this afternoon for a team that had not played in over a week. It had been seven days to the day since they swept the Indiana Pacers, and they picked up right where they left off. Kyrie Irving continued his great playoff play scoring 26 points and dishing out 11 assists. Al Horford had a strong game on both ends of the floor adding 20 points and 11 rebounds. Jaylen Brown added 19 points and Gordon Hayward finished with 13 points.
