The Boston Celtics finally ended a 4-game losing skid on Wednesday night with a 103-94 victory against the Indiana Pacers, where the C's went on a 12-0 run in the closing 1:46 of the game to seal the win.
Isaiah Thomas led the team in scoring with 28 points, including the tough shot below to help get the C's back in the game in the 4th quarter.

Jae Crowder (or as KWAPT calls him, "Jaesus") scored 25 points to go along with 2 of Boston's 7 steals, the most important being the grab with 1:02 left in the game to give the C's the 3 point lead and get the Garden fired up.
Amir Johnson also contributed greatly with 14 points and 18 rebounds, putting him on Sean Grande's top rebounds list.

Marcus Smart contributed 5 points and 7 rebounds off the bench, but perhaps had one of the most talked about plays of the game with this crazy circus shot:
