Isaiah Thomas, fresh off an impressive Celtics debut (despite getting ejected) against the Lakers on Sunday, put up another 21 point game and buried the team that traded him last week.
Thomas scored 8 of his 21 in the final minute and a half to help pull off a 5 point victory over the Suns.
“It felt good to beat the team that traded you away,” Thomas said. “I just love the big moment. I want to be the hero.
“There’s no hard feelings between me and the Phoenix Suns. My closest friends are on that team,” he added. “It’s just me going out there and doing what it takes to win. When I get on the court, I don’t have any friends.”
Thomas also had 7 assists in 27 minutes of play.
