I.T. comes up BIG again, Crowder stays hot, Horford & Smart both with solid games (videos)

Isaiah Thomas scored game-high 41 points, icluding 24 points just in the fourth quarter as the Celtics beat the Pistons. This was another great performance for Thomas who is the only NBA player to have multiple games with 20+ points in the 4th quarter this season.

Jae Crowder continues his great shooting streak with 21 points on 12 shots. Crowder hit four threes on the night and added eight rebounds as he's been tearing it up lately in terms of shooting. Actually, Jae has a legitamely chance to join the 50/40/90 club!

Al Horford returned to the lineup after missing two games with groin injury and posted nice statline of 13 points, six rebounds, six assists and two blocks, icnluding game-clinching swat on Reggie Jackson in the crunchtime. Horford showed some hoops as well, throwing it hard down in the first quarter.

Marcus Smart also got 13 points and added eight assists as he continues to progress as a playmaker. It wasn't the greatest night for Marcus who shot 3/13 from the field and made some easy mistakes down the stretch but he still was able to contribute in a positive way, being +11 for the team.
