The Celtics were rewarded with a lot of solid efforts from a number of players this season.

Evan Turner somehow turned into a triple-double machine.

Jared Sullinger posted a 27-point, 10-rebound effort in a January home win against Anthony Davis and the Pelicans.

Avery Bradley dropped 30 in Charlotte, helping the Celts clinch a crucial victory in the tough month of March.

Tyler Zeller scored 20 points and ripped down nine boards north of the border in April.

All these individual outputs, along with others, are up for debate as the greatest, but one really stands out.

April 8th at Detroit- Isaiah Thomas: 34 points, six assists, 10-of-11 FT's

The 113-103 W at the Palace was a vital game for the C's and their march to securing a playoff-berth. The C's sixth-man drained four shots from beyond the arc and boasted a plus/minus of +35 in his 30 minutes of playing time.

The performance by Thomas, brought people back to the late-80's when his namesake was dropping dimes and nailing jumpers in a Pistons' uniform.

The 26-year-old helped carry the Celts to their 36th win of the season, the second victory in the six-game win streak the Celtics rode towards the seventh-seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs:
