When Isaiah Thomas takes the court for the Boston Celtics, Tom Brady wants him to know one thing. He’s not alone. The New England Patriots star took to Instagram to tell Thomas, “We all have your back.”

It's how you come back… Good luck tonight. We all have your back! #YourTurn

It’s been a trying time for Thomas. He’s tried to compete in the NBA Playoffs, while simultaneously grieving the sudden and tragic loss of his sister.

From a basketball perspective, the Celtics couldn’t be in much more of a hole. They not only trail the Chicago Bulls 0-2, but do so after dropping the first two games in Boston. So, overcoming that task will be a challenge.

But if there’s anyone who knows what it’s like to overcome a monumental challenge, it’s Brady. Thomas will be looking to channel the magic that Brady has had throughout his career, most recently at Super Bowl LI when he and the Patriots overcame a 28-3 deficit in the second half.
