Quantcast

We may need to schedule a monthly one of these posts where we just praise Isaiah Thomas and list off his new achievements or milestones that he seems to constantly be reaching.

Yeup, once again Isaiah is surpassing all expectations. The last quarter of the final game of the month on Monday was a prime example of Isaiah's greatness. Let's first look at how the 5'9" guard capped off his historic month of basketball with another clutch fourth quarter against the Pistons.

The Pistons came surging into the final 12 minutes, dissolving the Celtics' lead that they had all game and even taking the lead at one point. Luckily, Isaiah came to the rescue by scoring 24 of Boston's 34 fourth quarter points, including their last 11 of the game and many huge three-pointers like this one:



The second leading scorer in the NBA has been an absolute beast for two months now. He has been improving every month of the 2016-17 season, climbing all the way up to 32.9 points per game in January:



What will the All-Star have in store for February? Could he possible outdo himself again? Well, before we look too far ahead, let's keep enjoying what he has already accomplished. Isaiah had a historic stretch in January that put him in great Celtic company:



To get real nitty-gritty, no one has ever averaged more points over the month of January in Celtics history:



On top of being more and more amazing by the month, Isaiah has consistently been unstoppable in the fourth quarter. You already knew this, but check out how many more 20-point fourth quarter outbursts he has had this season compared to the rest of the league:



I mean, this guy has just been ridiculous.
