For about four minutes to start the final quarter of Wednesday’s spat with the Indiana Pacers, the Celtics couldn’t find the bottom of the net. At that point, it seemed like the C’s losing streak was going to continue and this team was to fall deeper into a dark abyss.
Then Boston, like a slick thief, stole a W. Literally. With 2:33 left in the game, Jae Crowder picked the pocket of Monta Ellis and that strung off four straigh steals and scores for the Celtics giving them the lead and the eventual 103-94 win.
- Jae Crowder was the spark that ignited the Celtics comeback and the Boston forward has been evolving offensively showing again tonight that he can be leaned on for more than just his defense. Crowder finished tonight with 25 points on 11-15 shooting.
- Isaiah Thomas stayed hot against Indiana dropping a game high 28 points and the Celtics guard also dished out 4 assists.
- Amir Johnson logged a double-double and flirted with a triple-double on Wednesday. He had 14 points, 18 rebounds and 6 assists.
- Marcus Smart (5 points and 7 rebounds) continues to be the king of the circus shot.
Celtics have Thursday off and then will have another back-to-back starting on Friday.
