Crowder and Bradley both score 21, Isaiah gets 17/10 and Brown shines but it's not enough (videos)
Jae Crowder played one of his best game in this year's playoffs, finishing with 21 points on 8-for-13 shooting (including 4-for-6 from downtown) to go with eight rebounds and five assists. Crowder couldn't do much about LeBron James so he was team-worst minus-22 on the night but we still need him to make all those shots to fight with the Cavs.
Avery Bradley got 21 points himself, getting a ton of easy buckets from great cuts to the basket. He even did try to posterize LeBron and ended up getting fouled.
Isaiah Thomas posted second double-double in a row as he scored 17 points to go with 10 dimes on the night. Isaiah easily won his matchup with Kyrie Irving but he needs to be better on the offensive side of the floor if the Celtics don't want to get swept.
Jaylen Brown was the biggest silver lining for the Celtics on Wednesday night, being just one reboud shy of a double-double. Rookie finished with 10 points and nine boards in 20 minutes of play and was one of only three Celtics player to have positive plus/minus.
