In two games without Avery Bradley, Isaiah Thomas has 90 points and zero assists
Incredibly, the Celtics point guard has scored 90 points in those two games without dishing out a single assist. Something that’s nearly impossible to do for a point guard with the ball in his hands so much.
Those two games have come recently. The first was Thomas’ career-high 52 points in a win against the Miami Heat. In that one, he shot 15-for-26 from the field and made all 13 of his free throws with two turnovers.
Then last night, Thomas went off for 38 points on 13-for-24 shooting in a win over the Pelicans while turning the ball over just once.
It’s clear that the Celtics and their little general transform somewhat without Bradley on the floor. Thomas is averaging 6.1 assists a night on the year but he does his best Allen Iverson impression when Bradley isn’t around.
It’s certainly not a problem as the Celtics scored 117 points in each of those games to get the win.
