The Boston Celtics won 129-119 over the Washington Wizards at home to take a 2-0 lead in the series. An overtime thriller in Boston on Tuesday night was definitely the best game in this postseason so far.

A career night for Isaiah Thomas

It was another emotional night for Isaiah Thomas. He played the best game of his life on his sister's birthday, who died recently in a car crash. The Wizards opened the game strongly, as they scored a big 42 points in the first quarter alone. They had a 13 point lead after the opening quarter. Then the Celtics responded and won the second quarter by ten points, as they went to the break with a three point deficit.

The visitors had a 13 point lead again in the second half, but Boston quickly turned it into a single-digit deficit and entered the fourth quarter trailing by five points. The Wizards led 110-104 with 2:26 left on the clock when Isaiah Thomas and Terry Rozier hit their three-point attempts and tied the game. Washington regained the lead with Porter's three point shot, but Thomas tied the game from the Free Throw Line and sent it into overtime. It was all about the Celtics in the overtime, as they outscored the Wizards 15-5 and took the game.

Isaiah Thomas finished the game with a career-high 53 points, while shooting 18 of 33 from the field, 5 of 12 from the outside and 12 of 13 from the free-throw line.

Thomas also had four rebounds, four assists and three steals in 44 minutes on the floor. Al Horford had a double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds, while shooting 6 of 9 from the field. Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley added 14 points each, while Terry Rozier scored 12 points off the bench.

Another great performance by John Wall

John Wall continues to play at the highest level, as he led the Wizards in points, assists, steals and blocks. Wall had 40 points, 13 assists, three steals and three blocks in 47 minutes of play, while shooting 16 of 32 from the field and 3 of 10 from downtown. Bradley Beal had a silent night with only 14 points, five rebounds and four assists, as he shot just 4 of 15 from the field and 1 of 9 from the three point line.

Marcin Gortat added a double-double with 14 points and ten rebounds, while Markieff Morris had 16 points and six rebounds in 26 minutes on the floor. Kelly Oubre Jr. added 12 points and seven rebounds off the bench.

The next game is on the schedule for Thursday, at 8.00 pm, as the series will move to Washington.
