Thomas Sets Celtics Record with 29 Points in 4th Quarter


Isaiah Thomas had a fourth quarter better than any other player for a team rich in history.

Thomas set a club record with 29 points in the fourth quarter, finishing with a career-high 52 points and leading the Boston Celtics to a 117-114 victory over the Miami Heat on Friday night.

Thomas also came close to the NBA record for scoring in the fourth quarter — 31 scored by Wilt Chamberlain in his 100-point game against the New York Knicks on March 2, 1962.
