Game 2 of the Wizards-Celtics series gave us one of the best games of the playoffs so far. A dueling match between Isaiah Thomas and John Wall led the way for most of the game, but it was Thomas who stole the spotlight late, scoring 53 points and willing the Celtics to a 129-119 overtime win.
Thomas scored 29 points combined in the fourth quarter and overtime, proving he really is King of the Fourth. His 53 points for the game were the most in a playoff game since 2003.
His 50th point came late in overtime as he put the Wizards away for good. It’s fitting that it was a shot as tough as it was. Perfectly Isaiah Thomas.
Here are the times and information for Saturday’s slate of games:
Also on Thursday is the first game between the Rangers and Senators. Neither Cheap Dolphins Jerseys team was given a chance against arguably better opponents, but both New York and Cheap Donegal Gaa Jerseys Ottawa handled their first round series with aplomb. After besting their opponents in six games each, they’ll kick things off in Ottawa for a chance at the Eastern Conference Final.
But of course, the real jewel is the Sidney Crosby vs. Alex Ovechkin rematch we’ve all been waiting for. The Capitals are coming off a grueling series versus Toronto, and the Penguins breezed by Columbus. However, Pittsburgh arguably has a weaker team than last year, and the Capitals are as strong as they’ve ever been.
Wednesday brought us some incredible second round playoff hockey. Thursday will likely not disappoint.
