Isaiah Thomas scores 38, Marcus Smart with 22/5/6 and Gerald Green goes for 15 off the bench (videos)
Isaiah Thomas scored game-high 38 points, including 17 coming just in the fourth as he won a head-to-head battle with Anthony Davis who got 36 on his own. Thomas shot 13 for 24 from the field, hitting six 3-pointers on the night as the Celtics beat the Pelicans and ended four-game home stand with 4-0 record.
Marcus Smart was once again doing it all, scoring 22 points to go along with five rebounds, six assists and some stellar defense, including great D on much taller Anthony Davis. Smart was 5/7 from downtown and even got one four-point play! It was easily one of his best games this season.
Gerald Green finished the game with 15 points off the bench, scoring 10 in the 2nd quarter and going perfect 7/7 from the charity line. Green provided nice offensive spark with Avery Bradley being sidelined because of strained Achilles. Gerald has been killing it lately when giving a chance to play!
