Celtics' Isaiah Thomas to see specialists about hip injury

He has never lost a playoff series when his team has been up 2-0. Swept isn't a word the Celtics want to hear right now, but it's a sobering reality, particularly if Thomas is unable to go in Game 3. "Our team is in a great groove, and I'm happy to be a part of that groove", said LeBron following the lopsided victory.
