Think the Celtics didn’t miss Isaiah Thomas? They lost three of four when he was out recently, and won both games since he returned.
Thomas had 23 points and the Magic Johnson-like behind-the-back, no-look pass to Jae Crowder to help spark the Celtics to a 105-95 road win over the Heat.
Thomas also was ejected for a flagrant-2 foul when he elbowed the face of Justise Winslow with 3:02 left in the game. It was just a swing-through move trying to create space and it didn’t appear intentional. I doubt we will see a fine for this.
