If you wanted to know a factor in how Isaiah Thomas has managed to carry the Boston Celtics to a six-game winning streak after going down 0-2 against the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, look no further than the man behind the curtain: Kobe Bryant.
The Black Mamba reached to IT4 during the time of his sister’s death but has been in his corner for the basketball moments as well, giving advice to the Celtics point guard.
Isaiah revealed that the two watched film together on FaceTime and Kobe broke down some of the things he saw and he could improve on to elevate his game in the postseason. He didn’t go into details about what exactly they talked about, but did disclose that he sees things different than he could have ever thought of and has been great help.
Boston is currently up 2-0 against the Washington Wizards in the second round of the playoffs, with the series shifting to D.C. and going down tonight at 8pm EST.
