Isaiah Thomas scored game-high 28 points, including a game-winner with 2.4 seconds left on the clock as the Celtics stopped Atlanta's seven-game win streak. Thomas had 13 points in the fourth quarter and seven coming in the final two minutes of the game. He also added nine assists to his total, all this with everybody watching it on ESPN. Check out his highlights as commented by Mike & Scal.
Kelly Olynyk played his best game this season, scoring 26 points on 9/11 shooting. Olynyk hit four 3-pointers and had eight rebounds and four assists as well. He started the second half in place of Amir Johnson and spent 32 minutes on the court, having the best +/- on the team (+20). Great game for Kelly!
Jae Crowder was just one rebound shy of a double-double as he got 18 points and nine boards. The Celtics are shooting the lights out lately and Jae is one of the reasons - he hit four threes of 17 total for Boston team. This was just the second time in club history when the C's took more threes (44) than twos (39).
As a bonus, watch highlights of Al Horford's homecoming to Atlanta. Fans booed at Al when he was introduced as a Celtics player but they gave him a standing ovation after the nice tribute video that was showed before the start of 2nd quarter. Horford finished the game with 10 points, six rebounds and six steals, admitting in a post-game interview with Abby Chin that he's just happy it's all behind him now.
