Quantcast



The Boston Celtics handed Doc Rivers his first loss in the TD Garden as coach of the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night in a 139-134 overtime victory. The C's 139 points were the most scored by the franchise since November 25, 1992.

A few special moments occurred before the game's tip-off: Paul Pierce was warmly welcomed by the Garden crowd for what could be his last appearance in Boston, and Isaiah Thomas was presented with his All-Star jersey.




It was only fitting that Isaiah would turn in an All-Star caliber performance before heading to Toronto. Going toe-to-toe with fellow All-Star Chris Paul, Thomas was the game's leading scorer with 36 points to go along with 11 assists. (Chris Paul had 35 points on the night and 13 assists).

Marcus Smart had a huge game off the bench with 17 points, going 3-for-5 from behind the 3 point line. Reminiscent of the Cleveland game on Friday, Smart's passionate play gave the Celtics the ball off a 4th quarter missed free throw attempt.



In addition to Thomas and Smart, 4 other Celtics scored in double figures: Jared Sullinger (21 points), Jae Crowder (19 points), Avery Bradley (18 points), and Evan Turner (14 points).
