Wade just informed teammates there's no hot water for showers in visiting locker room. — K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) 27 aprile 2017Red Auerbach was a master at giving his Celtics every little bit of home-court advantage they could get. As Charley Rosen explained some years back on ESPN's Page 2: Back in the glory days of the Celtics, Red Auerbach squeezed every bit of home-court advantage he could out of Boston Garden. Visiting teams would be assigned a different locker room every time they came to town, a subtle tactic that increased their sense of alienation and discomfort. A more obvious, and odious, annoyance for the visitors was the discovery that, no matter which locker room they occupied, at least one of the toilets would be jammed up and overflowing. Also, since all of the locker rooms were heated by radiator pipes, Auerbach employed a traditional hockey strategy -- arranging for the boiler to be stoked at just the right time so that the radiators in the visitors' quarters would be clanging and banging just as they arrived. The same process would be repeated to coincide with the halftime intermission.

Fred Hoiberg criticizes officials for not calling travels on Isaiah Thomas pic.twitter.com/pZ7LB3nxwQ — Sports Illustrated (@SInow) 24 aprile 2017Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg said that Isaiah Thomas is impossible to guard if he is allowed to travel every possession. Per USA Today, “Let me say this: Isaiah Thomas is a helluva player. An unbelievable competitor. He’s a warrior — everything he’s going through right now, he had a helluva game tonight. But when you’re allowed to discontinue your dribble on every possession, he is impossible to guard. He’s impossible to guard. When you’re able to put your hand underneath the ball, and take two or three steps and put it back down, it’s impossible to guard him in those situations.”
