Isaiah Thomas scored a game-high 32 points in a losing effort on Wednesday, making 9-of-17 FGs and 9-of-9 FTs with five 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists and three steals.
Thomas didn't mince words when asked how Boston has been able to seize the No. 1 seed in the East. "Because we’re good. Like, we’re really good," Thomas said. "We know how to play with each other and guys are unselfish and know their roles." IT4 certainly knows his role, as he leads the Celtics in scoring virtually every game, while functioning as one of the league's premier fourth-quarter closers. He's hit at least one 3-pointer in 50 straight games and is now the franchise leader in 3-pointers during a single season, overtaking Antoine Walker. Win or lose, he's a fantasy stud.
