With everyone finally healthy with 14 games to go, they plan to make the most out of the games they have left before the postseason.
After the Celtics' 117-104 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves Wednesday night, the rookie forward returned to his vehicle to find it filled to the brim with buttered popcorn.
Thomas had 27 points on 8 of 15 shooting, while Al Horford scored 20, pulled down nine rebounds and issued eight assists.
"We haven't been together that much", Thomas said.
Isaiah Thomas is now second in the National Basketball Association in scoring at 29.2 points per game and has been the catalyst for the Celtics' rise to the No. 2 spot in the Eastern Conference this season. "It doesn't matter who we play, what their record is". Guard Avery Bradley contributed 17 points in his best output since returning from an Achilles injury and is 7-for-11 from 3-point range in the last two games. We just gotta control our own destiny, control what we can control, and that's by bringing it each and every night.
Ricky Rubio had a season high 23 points as the Timberwolves fell to 10-21 on the road this season.
Certainly the fact that their opponents are Brooklyn and Philadelphia, two teams the Celtics should be able to handle, even without Thomas, is a big factor in the Celtics deciding to keep Thomas in Boston.
