The legend of Isaiah Thomas keeps growing. The NBA‘s top fourth-quarter scorer erupted in crunch time yet again Wednesday, scoring 19 of his 44 points against the Toronto Raptors in the final frame. Thomas’ Celtics fell behind by double-digits in the second quarter and trailed by 18 points in the third, but in crunch time, he did what he normally does. When Boston took its first lead of the game, 95-94, Thomas was on a personal 9-0 run. This was exactly what Toronto coach Dwane Casey feared when, before the game, he compared the 5-foot-9 All-Star’s work in the clutch to that of Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Dirk Nowitzki.
