"She would have been 23 today", Thomas said as his emotions swelled at his postgame news conference. He's got a swollen mouth. Still, he never considered not playing Tuesday night.
On what would have been his late sister Chyna's 23rd birthday, Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas overcame both his emotions - and intensive dental work - to will his team to an overtime victory against the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night. "There was no way I was sitting out".
Isaiah Thomas scored a career playoff high 53 points, nine of them in a game-closing 15-2 over-time run that powered the Boston Celtics over Washington 129-119 in a second-round National Basketball Association playoff game Tuesday.
Wall wasn't alone. Kelly Oubre was the only Wizards player to score in extra time with five points, including a period-opening 3-pointer.
During player introductions, Thomas pointed to the TD Garden rafters when his name was called. "That's what it's all about". John Wall added an additional 20 along with 16 assists. Wall was the best player in the floor in the first half, making play after play for the visiting team.
"He's one of the biggest winners in this league", Wizards coach Scott Brooks said.
Isaiah Thomas trium-phantly leaves the court after becoming the fourth Celtic to surpass 50 points in a playoff game.

Yoest-who began her career working for Ronald Reagan and, later, worked as an advisor for former Arkansas Gov. On AUL's website, Yoest is referred to as " public enemy no. 1 " of abortion rights organizations.
According to ESPN.com, after a brief retreat to the locker room for a team doctor to re-place the tooth back in his mouth, Thomas lost it again later.
"What else is there to say?". "There was a point today where he was not feeling good at all". I've always had team-mates that I've always clowned them about the tooth being out and now I'm one of them. Not only guts it out, he ends up with 50.
Jae Crowder added 24 points for Celtics while centre Al Horford had 21 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds and Avery Bradley netted 18 points.
The guys in green hope to surge to a 2-0 lead before the series heads to Washington and they're on fire after going on the attack against the Chicago Bulls in the first round.
In Oakland, California, Stephen Curry pulled off a razzle-dazzle spin move right around big Rudy Gobert at the perimeter, went in for a layup and raised his hands, begging the sellout crowd to do its thing. He was winning the game for the Celtics, and Washington couldn't dream of stopping him. I just knew that I had to keep being aggressive.
After a high-scoring first half, which saw Washington going into the break with a 67-64 lead, the visitors used a 14-0 run to help extend their advantage to 81-67 with 7:57 to go in the third quarter.
Gordon Hayward contributed 26 points while Derrick Favors poured in 17 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Jazz as they sealed a 4-3 series triumph in LA. Brown played just 12 minutes compared to Rozier's 25, but he was 2-for-2 from the field and did a great job defensively on Wall and Bradley Beal (just 14 points). Zaza Pachulia scored 10 points in 14 minutes.
