IT Scoring Streak Ends, C’s Lose [VIDEO]
The 43-game streak of scoring at least 20 points is over for Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas. In last night's 114-98 loss to Atlanta, Thomas scored 19 points.
The 43-game streak was a Celtics franchise record.
Coach Brad Stevens pulled Thomas and other starters with three minutes to play and the C's down 20 points.

Avery Bradley returned to the lineup after missing games with an achilles injury. He played just 15 minutes and scored six points.
The Hawks had six players in double-digit scoring.
