CSNNE's Trenni Kusnierek checked in with the day's top headlines.
The Boston Celtics topped the Sacramento Kings by a score of 99-81.
Meanwhile, the Boston Bruins continued preparations for the Buffalo Sabres.
Isaiah Thomas appears to be channeling the New England Patriots' "No days off" slogan.
The Boston Celtics guard spent Friday night, in the middle of the NBA offseason, studying film. He was up past midnight to take a look at Boston Celtics' game tape, according to ESPN.com's Chris Foresberg, who posted a picture on Twitter of Thomas hard at work.
Thomas finished the 2016-17 season with 28.9 points per game, 5.9 assists and 2.7 rebounds in 33.8 minutes. He helped the Celtics earn the NBA Eastern Conference's No. 1 seed, and contributed a handful of clutch performances as Boston charged to the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, who won the series, 4-1.
Celtics forward Jaylen Brown joined in the Drive-By Dunk Challenge and tweeted a video that captured his thunderous slam.

And the All-Star dunk contest next year might have to be sanctioned by NASCAR.
