Isaiah Thomas PG BOS 6 hours ago

Thomas had another poor shooting performance in Sunday's Game 4 loss, but he still finished the game with 21 points (4-17 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 12-12 FT), five rebounds and nine assists in 37 minutes.

Thomas finishes the season going 6-for-26 in his final two games of this series. Still, he had three games against the Cavs with 21 or more points.

Thomas had a poor Game 3 in Boston Thursday, scoring only five points on 2-of-9 shooting.

After allowing Thomas to post back-to-back 22 point games early in the series, the Cavalier front court was focused on shutting down Thomas during Game 3. Thomas missed all three of his three-point attempts and dished only two assists. He and the Celtics hope to avoid elimination on Sunday.

Thomas led the Celtics in scoring once again Tuesday, posting 22 points (6-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 10-10 FT) in 30 minutes off the bench. He also added seven assists and a steal, but committed four turnovers as the Celtics fell to the Cavaliers 99-91.

Thomas is off to a strong start this postseason with 22 points in each of his first two outings. He is the Celtics' most dynamic threat on offense and is really only a "bench player" in name alone. His ability to score and distribute makes him one of the better point guards in daily formats for the playoffs.

Thomas played 32 minutes off the bench during Sunday's loss to the Cavaliers, finishing with a team-high of 22 points (6-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 8-8 FT), to go along with five rebounds, 10 assists and one steal.

Thomas ended the regular season as the Celtic's leading scorer with a season average of 16.4 points per game, so it's not surprising he again led the team in points during Sunday's game against the Cavaliers. The double-double was his first of the season, as Thomas had yet to reach double-digit assists this season. Considering Thomas will continue to get starters' minutes throughout the rest of the playoffs, don't expect too much of a drop-off in his numbers, although his assist numbers are likely to decrease a bit.

Thomas (rest) will sit out of Wednesday's regular season finale against Milwaukee, Jay King of MassLive.com reports.

With the Celtics' playoff position already set, Thomas will get the night off Wednesday before the postseason begins. Thomas had played at least 20 minutes in each of his last 11 games since returning from a back injury.

Thomas scored 34 points (10-17 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 10-11 FT) with six assists and three rebounds in 30 minutes off the bench Wednesday.

He played like his namesake in his namesake's old stomping grounds, as the Celtics eliminated the Pistons from the playoff picture on Wednesday. He's scored at least 23 points in each of the last three games, and if Boston hangs onto their postseason berth it will be in large part due to Thomas.

Thomas had 23 points (7-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT) with six assists in 26 minutes in the loss to the Bucks on Friday.

Since returning from a back injury on Mar. 25, Thomas had not hit better than 33.3 percent of his field goals in five games. He has doled out at least six dimes in his last five games.

Thomas is shooting only 29.5 percent in his last five games since returning from back injury.

The back injury that forced Thomas to miss eight games seems to be affecting his shooting stroke. Thomas, a career 44% shooter, has only hit 15 of 51 shots in his last five games. That includes shooting only 25.9 percent from three point land. The Celtics are still gunning for a playoff spot, so they can't afford to sit their lead scorer. Thomas has only seven games left to get hot.

Thomas had four points (2-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 0-3 FT) and three turnovers in 20 minutes of action.

Thomas (back) didn't play well, but after missing eight games you can expect some rust. His minutes will likely increase with each game, as will his play.

Thomas (back) will be available for Wednesday's game against the Heat, Jay King of MassLive.com reports.

Thomas, who has missed eight games with a bruised tailbone and elbow stemming from a hard fall, hasn't played any 5-on-5 since the injury, but he'll attempt to gut it out and play Wednesday as the Celtics battle for playoff positioning. "He's going to try to play," coach Brad Stevens said. "We'll see how that goes." While Thomas' willingness to play is admirable, he's probably best avoided in daily formats, as it's possible he'll be limited by the injury.
