Isaiah Thomas Is Injuring Pelicans Players With His Killer Crossover


We’re guessing the New Orleans Pelicans are very glad they don’t have to see Isaiah Thomas for a while.

Thomas was a one-man wrecking crew Wednesday night at TD Garden, dropping 32 points and eight assists to help the Boston Celtics fend off the Pelicans in a 104-97 win.

But the Celtics point guard didn’t just hurt New Orleans with his stat line. With Boston leading by just four points in the game’s final minute, Thomas hit Pelicans guard Tim Frazier with a lethal in-and-out move before finding Avery Bradley for the game-clinching 3-pointer.

That’s the definition of “breaking ankles.”

Frazier badly twisted his right ankle on the play, but fortunately for New Orleans, which has been absolutely decimated by injuries this season, he doesn’t plan on missing any time. Still, the former Celtics D-Leaguer looked like he was in pretty bad pain after the play and undoubtedly suffered a major injury to his pride.

A note to Celtics opponents: If you’re guarding Thomas, bring extra ankle tape.
