With 30 seconds remaining in overtime Sunday night, Isaiah Thomas drained this three-pointer to put the Celtics up by seven points and essentially seal the victory:

That came on the heels of his spectacular layup to tie things up at the end of regulation:

In the final moments of OT with the game in hand, Isaiah scored his 27th and 28th points of the evening at the free-throw line as chants of "MVP! MVP!" reigned down from the TD Garden crowd.  The way this postseason has gone to this point, it didn't even feel that far-fetched:

Thomas also has the most total points through four games in the playoffs so far with 113, ahead of Irving (110), George (105), and a few other guys you may have heard of named James Harden (98), Kevin Durant (97), Russell Westbrook (94) and LeBron James (91).

After going just 12-of-36 from the floor during two losses in Atlanta, Thomas busted out of his shooting slump and guided the Celtics to a pair of wins in Boston to even the series:

Thomas followed up his on-court heroics with some MVP behavior in the postgame press conference as well--the Celtics All Star brought his sons Jaden and James on stage with him, a la Steph and Riley Curry:

"Isaiah is the greatest basketball player."

I'm not going to argue with you right now, James.
