Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas continues to bounce back from tragedy. After losing his younger sister in a car accident, he found the strength to take the court and power through the first round of the NBA playoffs. Then, he scored 53 points in a comeback victory on his sister’s birthday.
Thomas later fell to an injury while playing the Cleveland Cavaliers, but the Celtics aren’t fretting: They won the NBA draft lottery, which means they have the No. 1 overall pick—projected to be UW star Markelle Fultz. Former Husky coach Lorenzo Romar talked to Boston.com about coaching both guards.
