Thomas Scores 53, Celts Win In Overtime [VIDEO]
Isaiah Thomas put on a performance for the ages in Tuesday night's 129-119 Celtics overtime win over Washington. 53 points, 29 of them came in the 4th quarter and OT.
The Celts lead the series 2-0.
Thomas left most observers asking 'how does he do it'? He spent much of the day getting his teeth fixed, for a second straight day. He was dealing with the emotion of the day being his late sister's 23rd birthday. His sister died in that car accident two weeks ago. At some point, Thomas wasn't even sure he was going to play.
Only John Havlicek has scored more points in a playoff game(54) and that was back in 1973. He shot 18-for-33 and was 5-for-12 shooting three-pointers.
John Wall scored 40 points to lead the Wizards.
Now the series shifts to Washington for game three Thursday night and live coverage on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket begins at 7:30pm.
