Isaiah Thomas scored team-high 19 points to go with seven rebounds (also team-high!) and seven dimes for the Celtics but they couldn't overcome the Hawks on Monday night. Thomas was only 4/21 from the field and had seven turnovers so it clearly wasn't his best performance. What is more, he didn't score 20 or more points for the first time in the 44 games so his historic streak stopped at 43.
Marcus Smart got 16 points and finished the month of February on the high note. He was also mic'd up during the game and was very vocal about his teammates which shows how much of a leader he has become this season.
Celtics fans wasn't happy about third loss in four last games but Jaylen Brown's continues to impress with his solid play. Brown started the game on the bench with Avery Bradley coming back to the floor but it didn't stop the rookie from being one of the best Celtics player in this game. He was 6/10 from the field, including hitting two 3-pointers and some tough shots around the rim.
