The Atlanta Hawks came up short in game three of their series against the Boston Celtics last night, thanks in no small part to Isaiah Thomas.
The diminutive point guard went off for 42 points to lead Boston to the 111-103 win, but Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer was angered by Thomas' actions after he struck Dennis Schroder.
Thomas took a swipe at the head of the Hawks point guard and Budenholzer is calling on the NBA to review it.
"My thoughts are the league will review it," Budenholzer said, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, after the Celtics brought the series back to 2-1 to the Hawks after game three.
"The league does a thorough job on all things like this. They have high standards. All teams are aware of their emphasis during the playoffs."
The game did get a bit testy, with several technicals being handed out to players on both the Celtics and the Hawks.
After the game, Schroder seemed pretty irate himself.
"I'm not going to let nobody slap me in my face," Schroder said after the loss. "I told (Thomas) that. If you want to play like that, we'll play like that. I was mad."
We'll have to wait and see if Adam Silver and co. hand down any further punishments.
