Isaiah Thomas finished with game-high 34 points in Portland as the Celtics bounced back qucikly and beat the Blazers. Thomas won the battle with Trail Blazers backcourt and managed to score 30+ points despite hitting just two 3-pointers. It was his 20th game this season with at least 30 points.
Marcus Smart was Mr. Do-It-All on Thrusday! He got 18 points on 8/13 shooting to go with six boards, five dimes and five steals. Smart was everywhere on the court, especially in the fourth quarter when he just kept making winning plays, including a great steal, a putback and taking a charge on Damian Lillard. Very efficient night for Smartacus who started in place of Jae Crowder (out for personal reasons).
Jaylen Brown scored 14 points and added seven rebounds and two assists as well, hitting two threes and going 6/8 from the charity line. It's nice to see Jaylen taking the advantage of the situation and making the most out of the minutes he gets lately. It was just another solid start for the rookie. Hard work pays off!
And last but not least, watch Gerald Green fly to the big putback dunk over Mason Plumlee.
