Chyna Thomas, 22, the sister of the Boston Celtics’ Isaiah Thomas, died Saturday morning in a one-car accident on the I-5 in Federal Way, located between Seattle and Tacoma. Craig Sailor of The News Tribune has the details.
Chyna Thomas died at the scene of the accident on the shoulder of I-5, according to the Washington State Patrol who identified her.
The wreck occurred around 5 a.m. on southbound Interstate 5 near South 288th Street, according to the Washington State Patrol.
Her car drifted into the shoulder, she eventually ran into a barrier that flipped the car up, and the Toyota Camry slammed into a pole, according to the report.
The Celtics are scheduled to face the Chicago Bulls to open their playoff run on Sunday in Boston. The team released this statement.
Our condolences go out to the entire Thomas family on this tragic loss.
Robin Lopez whacked T.J. Warren in the head while chasing an offensive rebound. Warren didn’t like that, so he ran to the opposite end of the court and shoved Lopez to the floor. A heated confrontation ensued, though it didn’t escalate beyond yelling.
Warren received a flagrant foul, and Lopez was hit with a technical in the Suns’ 113-105 win over the Bulls.
Corey Brewer is better at finishing fastbreaks than leading them.
Nice defense by Emmanuel Mudiay, too.
But at least the Lakers won.
With the Timberwolves trailing the Pistons by three and 6.2 seconds left, Jimmy Butler drew a foul on a 3-pointer.
Butler made the first two free throws then, just before he got the ball for the third, Reggie Jackson interrupted to talk to Stanley Johnson, who was in rebounding position. Butler missed the free throw, and Detroit won 100-97 after an intentional foul.
Butler said Jackson didn’t affect him, but Butler’s side eye during the delay at least appeared to speak loudly.
Kris Dunn had a nice weekend – 39 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds as the Bulls beat the Hornets and lost to the Suns – punctuated by this dunk in Chicago’s 113-105 loss to the Suns last night.
T.J. Warren paid the price for Tyler Ulis overplaying a Robin Lopez screen Dunn cleverly never used.
