Isaiah Thomas intends to play in Game 2 against Chicago tonight, and then fly to Seattle for a memorial service honoring his late sister, Chyna, who died in a car crash early Saturday morning.
Though it’s possible that several members of the team, including good friend and fellow Tacoma, Wash., native Avery Bradley, will also be on hand for the service, Brad Stevens said the team will take its cue from Thomas.
Avery Bradley says his feelings don’t matter, but you could tell those feelings were running deep Sunday night at the Garden.
Behind his stoic expression, anyone who’s been around him for any length of time could tell he was hurting — not only for his friend, Isaiah Thomas, but out of frustration as he searched for something he could do to ease the situation.

NBA dribblers, particularly those who’ve earned the trip here for the All-Star Game, have seen measures of greatness in the mirror, and they’ve borne witness to amazing feats on a fairly regular basis.
John Havlicek stole the ball, but Isaiah Thomas is on the cusp of swiping an impressive record from the Celtics legend.
Thomas tied Havlicek in the C’s history books at the Garden last night, eclipsing the 20-point mark for the 40th consecutive game, the longest streak in franchise history.
On a night when a Toronto loss punched tickets for Brad Stevens and his assistants to fly to New Orleans for the Feb. 19 NBA All-Star Game, his own team continued to do its own job.
The Celtics, with Friday night’s 113-107 win over a young Lakers team, are now on a season-high six-game run.
