Thomas scores 52 points in Celtics’ win

 

Isaiah Thomas had set the stadium on fire by scoring 29 of his Career-high 52 points in the fourth quarter, marking a record that was hardly seen in the NBA Season till date. Thomas overall established 52 points in Boston’s win over the Miami Heat 117-114 on Friday night at the TD Garden in Boston.

The 5-foot-9 Thomas was seen obeying his mother who was screaming from the fan crowd to hit 50 on a six 3-pointers with just 37.2 remaining and turned a 3-point game in the deciding 4th quarter, which ultimately broke the franchise record of 24 points set by Larry Bird in 1983 and tied by Todd Day in 1995. Thomas surpassed his own record of career high of 44 points he scored in Memphis, on 20th December.

Thomas after the overwhelming win said –

“I looked in the stands, and my mom was like, ‘Fifty! Fifty!’ and I’m like, ‘I’m trying!'”

The maven entered the 4th quarter with 23 points and smashed the first 11 of the quarter for Boston that required Thomas’ scoring outbreak to hold stop the Heat.

Other players from Boston that scored well during the final period were Al Horford and Jaylen Brown until Marcus Smart thrown two free hit to cement it with just 6 seconds left.

Currently Thomas is the 6th player that scored 50 points or more in this season, with Golden State guard Klay Thompson tallying a season-best 60 in a 36-point win over Indiana on 5th December.

Thomas ended the statement saying it was Brad’s efforts –

“I have to give credit to my teammates and coach Brad (Stevens),”

“They were saying, ‘o 60!'”
