Isaiah Thomas put up 53 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals in the Boston Celtics’ Game 2 win against the Wizards tonight. He poured in 27 of those points in the fourth quarter and OT. Whilst this performance on it’s own is incredible, it becomes even crazier when you consider the fact Thomas has not only just completed 2 days of dental surgery, but today would have been the 23rd birthday of his late sister Chyna who passed away in a car accident on the eve of Game 1 for the Celtics/Bulls series.
This man is a trooper. No matter who your team is, you have to respect the endurance.
Thoughts and prayers go out to Isaiah Thomas. 🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/kvGQEYidwL
