BOSTON — It’s safe to say Isaiah Thomas’ performance Tuesday night was the talk of the sports world.
The Boston Celtics point guard scored 53 points, 29 of which came in the fourth quarter and overtime, as the C’s topped the Washington Wizards 129-119 in Game 2 of the teams’ best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series, which Boston now leads 2-0.
And while TD Garden certainly was buzzing, so was the Internet.
And Thomas did that all after major dental surgery on what would have been the 23rd birthday of his sister, Chyna, who was killed in a car crash on April 15.
