Celtics fans aren’t the only ones enamored with Isaiah Thomas. The pint-sized point guard was recognized by the NBA for his performances by naming him the Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

Thomas averaged 22 points, 6.5 assists, and 2.5 rebounds in just 28 minutes through 4 games last week. The Celtics rode Thomas’ energy to a 3-1 record and now sit right on the cusp of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Thomas is just the 2nd player playing primarily off the bench to win the award this season, following the Raptors Lou Williams PotW award on November 24th.
