It was the game he was waiting for. Just four days following a trade to the Celtics, Isaiah Thomas returned to Phoenix to take on his former Suns teammates. And he didn’t disappoint, scoring 21 points, with 7 assists and this late four point play which put the nail in the coffin for the Celtics.
“It meant a lot. I just wanted to win at the end of the day. It felt good to beat the team that traded you away…They probably thought I was going to try and go off on them, which I was.” Thomas said after the game.
The Celtics return to Boston to take on the Knicks on Wednesday.
