Boston took a 129-119 overtime win over the team from D.C. The Celtics now have a 2-0 lead over the Wizards as the series is set to move on to the nation's capital.

The leader of the team shows up

isaiah thomas of the Celtics has become the team's fifth player ever to score at least 50 points in an NBA playoff game. Also, the first one since the days of three-point legend Ray Allen, who scored 51 points back in 2009.

Guard Thomas had a night to remember, posting 53 points on 18-of-33 shooting from the field. Thomas, the leader of the Celtic team, came up big to help his team come closer to reaching the finals in the East.

Just short..

No player has scored more than 55 points in the postseason since Allen Iverson's playoff performance 14 years ago in 2003 when he scored 55.

Isaiah Thomas' 53 point performance is the second best scoring performance since the Iverson one. The Celtics guard fell three points short of having a better scoring performance than Iverson.

How great of a performance it was from both players

John Wall and Isaiah Thomas are now the first opposing players to score 40+ against each other in a postseason clash since Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Durant.

Back in 2011, the Dallas Mavericks were battling the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference finals. Germany's Nowitzki scored 48 points for Dallas while superstar Durant had 40 points in Game 1 of their series.

In the end, it was Thomas who will be having sweeter memories of Tuesday's Game 2 between Boston and Washington.

It was a great opening to the game

The Wizards have set their new record for the most points scored in the opening quarter of an NBA playoff game.

Washington scored 42 points in the first quarter of Game 2 against Boston. The 42 points scored gave them a double-digit lead over the Celtics 42-29.

After a great opening to the game, Washington didn't manage to collect more than 25 points in a quarter in the last three-quarters of the game.
