Lol, I dunno about that, but there's another video literally a few threads below yours.

IT is a special player, but I hope JB shuts him down :)

TP for the share though.

Props to Isaiah Thomas.  He was a great player and person for us during his time as a Celtic.  I'll always respect the guy.

But now that he plays for the Cavs.  Well, I hope he puts up some stinkers against us in that red and yellow uniform.  :P :)

I know it'll probably never happen as long as Danny is at the helm, but I have dreams that IT signs with us in the off season and becomes the most explosive 6th man in NBA history.  I know that won't happen so no need to set me straight, but dang I've got nothing but love for the dude.  I don't think a player has ever captured my heart as quickly as IT did.  It was only a few seasons he was here, but he almost feels up there with Pierce to me.

IT has been pretty well contained all 3 years in the playoffs. With the exception of a few explosive games, he's been reasonably held in check.

It's Kyrie that's gonna be doin the torching.

The words in thread title can be easily rearranged to:

We're going to torch this guy in the ECFs.

Honestly, I hope this is the year where we ACTUALLY have an answer for Love (and Thompson?), because it feels like they are the ones who ALWAYS kills us in the playoff series besides Lebron.

Thompson grabbing like 20 rebounds a game against us, Kevin Love averaging like 30 PPG and 15 RPG each time he plays us. So annoying.

It's a reason we lose to the Cavs a lot, because we also let Love kill us (matchup issues in Horford vs. Love)

I'm sure he'll be awesome, and I hope he tees off on the Celts.  It'll be interesting to see how he and LeBron play together, tho.

Way to be a buzzkill on a great season so far.  :P . Man, I loved IT.  That is hard to watch, knowing how much he killed it for the C's.  But, he'll be just fine, and we know we are.

It's Kyrie that's gonna be doin the torching.

To be fair, it was easy to keep him in check because those Cs teams didn't have a legit No. 2 scorer.

I hope we destroy him.  Kyrie, Marcus, Jaylen, Rozier, whoever.  I hope we shut him down and then abuse him on the other end. 

I love the guy, but my loyalty is to the Celtics first.

And this past year he was going through a lot.

family tragedy, hip injury, and the tooth stuff.

That said, Cavs have no where to hide him against us. Brown's way too big and strong and Irving will have a field day.

If we lose, then I will root for Isaiah in the finals, but against us I want him to be garbage!!!

That's fair. Although, being that IT is going to be a 2nd option I'd still wonder how much torching he's going to do in a Lebron dominated offense. Lebron is gonna get his first.
