The Cobra Feasts, Celtics beat Sixers 116-108

17 February 2017, 02:12 | Joan Schultz

With the Boston Celtics leading the Chicago Bulls 103-102 in the waning moments of Thursday night's game, Jimmy Butler attempted a game winning shot and missed.

Isaiah Thomas scored 13 of his 33 points in the final period and the surging Celtics beat Philadelphia 116-108 in Boston on Wednesday night.

Once the final buzzer sounded, all of the attention was on Smart's foul of Butler.

"You look back after the big meeting we had and we really got in a good rhythm", Hoiberg said, citing the January 27 team talk after Rajon Rondo called out Wade and Butler for criticizing teammates publicly. However, they made their first six shots in the fourth quarter to close the gap to 96-95. "That's a bad call". That broke a Celtics franchise record previously held by John Havlicek during the 1971-72 season. It's just the third time in the last 10 games that Johnson has reached double-digits in scoring.

"I'm one of the best defenders in this league".

At over 10 points and 4.5 assists per game, Marcus Smart has become the club's top bench player, with Kelly Olynyk providing significant support from the bench as well, at nine points and 4.7 rebounds per game. He is also the undisputed lead shot blocker on the club at 1.6 per game, and has displayed an ever-improving perimeter shooting game, hitting 65 three-point shots at a respectably good 35 percent shooting average. Through Wednesday night, Thomas was at 29.88 points. Later in the quarter, Gerald Henderson was ejected for two technical fouls on the same call.

Arsene Wenger defends Champions League record
Former Chelsea boss Ancelotti was speaking before Wednesday's Champions League last-16 first leg tie between the sides in Germany. If I said that I will make a decision in March or April, it is because I did not know.

"Great win to go into the break strong", he said, per the Bulls' Twitter account. "We do expect him to play this year", Brown said, also saying the same thing about injured C Joel Embiid (knee). The two free throws were the difference in Chicago's 104-103 win at the United Center.

BOSTON The fourth quarter has been good to Isaiah Thomas all season.

Robert Covington collided into the Celtics' bench and went down to the floor late in the fourth quarter (see video). The 6-foot-10 forward had missed two straight games with back spasms.

The rookie is the only Sixer to play in every game this season and he is playing his best basketball just prior to the All-Star Break, drawing praise from his head coach. The Celtics hope Bradley can return to the lineup soon after the All-Star break.

In the locker room, most of the Boston Celtics did not look like a bunch of guys who had just gotten blindsided by a last-second call.
