Ian Mahinmi hip checks Isaiah Thomas to the ground, no call

Welcome to Game 7. The whistles will be slow.

If this were the Capitals and the Bruins this would have been a nice play, but Washington’s Ian Mahinmi hip checked Isaiah Thomas the ground and that is illegal in basketball. There was no call (on that part of the play).

It was a pretty physical first half at times. As should be expected in a Game 7. Also sloppy at times as Game 7s often tend to be (because guys are tight).
