Isaiah Thomas scored team-high 18 points to go along with eight assists as the Celtics beat the Lakers in L.A. Thomas did not play in the fourth quarter at all as he just didn't have to, helping his team to build over 30-point lead. Isaiah's father James was watching the game from the stands!
Al Horford finally hit some shots as he got 17 points on 8/12 shooting. Horford has been in a big shooting slump these past games so let's hope this performance is just a beginning of better play for Al. Horford also added three assists and remains one of the best passing big-mans in the NBA.
Jaylen Brown finished the game with 16 points and eight rebounds, easily beating Brandon Ingram in the matchup of #2 and #3 picks of last year's draft. Brown amazed with some great moves and was flying high in the Staples Center, including an alley-oop off the backboard or acrobatic switching-hands alley-oop lay-in.
Avery Bradley played the best offensive game since his return to the court after Achilles injury, scoring 15 points on 6/11 shooting to go with four rebounds and four assists on the night. It's great to see Bradley coming back to his old self as he was having his best NBA season before the absence.
Jae Crowder once again did a little bit of everything, finishing the game with 14 points, six boards and three assists for the Celtics. Jae hit 4/6 from the field, including 2/2 from the deep as the Celtics were +23 with him on the court (second-best result on the team behind Horford who was +24).
Amir Johnson had one of the best games this season as he got 13 points, six rebounds and four dimes. Johnson likes playing in the L.A. as he set his career-high in points a couple of years ago, scoring 32 points on Lakers. This time, he hit two 3-pointers and was very solid on both ends of the floor.
