Isaiah Thomas had 35 points and five assists on the night but the Celtics made some costly mistakes and lost in unbelieveable fashion in Phoenix. Thomas hit some big shots but missed a crucial free throw and couldn't handle the ball so Tyler Ulis hit a buzzer-beater. At least we got this Thomas-Ulis jumpball...
Jae Crowder got himself another double-double as he scored 16 points and grabbed down 10 rebounds. Crowder made a big three-point play down the stretch but then he misunderstood with Thomas while inbouding the ball which resulted in a very costly turnover.
Jaylen Brown once again started in place of Avery Bradley (hamstring) and posted 14 points, six rebounds and three assists for the Celtics. The only thing missing was a little better free throw efficiency as Brown hit 5-for-10 and missed a very important one in the crunchtime.
Terry Rozier provided a nice spark off the bench, scoring 14 points on the night, including going 4-for-5 from the deep! Rozier played some big minutes while the Celtics came back from 14-point deficit.
Amir Johnson is playing the best basketball of this season these last games. He got 13 points, eight boards, three assists and three blocks in Phoenix, being solid on both end of the floor. It seems Amir is finally coming to play on a high level!
