Isaiah Thomas believes the Celtics gave up against the Warriors

Isaiah Thomas, ever the competitor, was in no mood to beat arond the bush after his Boston Celtics fell to the Golden State Warriors on Friday night.

The Warriors outscored Boston 31-9 in a dominant third-quarter effort that saw them pull away from the most successful franchise in NBA history.

They would eventually blowout Boston 104-88 with both Kevin Durant and Draymond Green coming close to a triple-double and Klay Thompson dropping a game-high 26 points.

However, the All-Star point guard believes the Warriors won so easily because of the Celtic's efforts, rather than their own class.

"I guess we gave up. I mean, coaching staff as well," Thomas said. "We started subbing, it was bad. Especially, I only played 27 minutes. We gave up."

Thomas' 18 points on the night was his lowest of the season and he knows his performance in that crucial third quarter was just as disappointing as anybody else.

"I'm not saying [the third-quarter substitution was] the reason why we lost," Thomas said. "We couldn't get stops and they kept scoring and we didn't play well on the offensive end for the whole quarter. ... But we went into panic mode, for whatever reason. That's why I'm upset with that."
