During the Celtics’ game against the Hornets on Saturday night, guard Isaiah Thomas defended two shots in a row quite nicely.

Well, they were uncontested shots—free throws, in fact. He screamed “short” as Charlotte’s Cody Zeller began to shoot the front end of two from the charity stripe, and it worked to perfection. He missed 'em both. 

Whatever it takes.
