Isaiah Thomas has been one of the top scorers in the NBA this season, but he hit another level on Friday night against the Miami Heat.
The 5-foot-9 point guard scored a career-high 52 points, including 29 in the fourth quarter, leading the Celtics to a 117-114 victory at the Garden.
The performance produced the third-highest point total by a player in a game during the 2016-17 season.
The 52 points from Thomas trailed only DeMarcus Cousins (55 points) and Klay Thompson (60 points).
While the 27-year-old All-Star did not set any NBA records during the outburst, he did cement his place in franchise history in a number of different ways.
