  • There were no gaps in Isaiah Thomas game on Sunday

The point guard only played after enduring hours of painful oral surgery to fix three teeth, one of which was knocked out in Game 1.

Isaiah Thomas became the second player to break the 50-point barrier in this year's NBA Playoffs, after the Boston Celtics defeated Washington Wizards 129-119 in overtime.

Washington Wizards guard John Wall (2) threads past Boston Celtics forward Jae Crowder (99) on a drive to the basket during the second quarter of a second-round NBA playoff series basketball game in Boston, Tuesday, May 2, 2017.

The Celtics lead the best-of-seven series, 2-0.

Thomas is playing at another level despite losing his younger sister, Chyna, in a tragic vehicle accident just two weeks ago.

He scored a career playoff-high 12 points with six rebounds and four assists.

John Wall led seven double-figure scorers for the Wizards with 40 points and 13 assists, but 19 of those points and six assists came in the first quarter.

The Celtics star says his sister, who died in a vehicle crash two weeks ago, helped him as he scored 53 points against the Wizards. Markieff Morris had 16 points, Marcin Gortat totalled 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Bradley Beal also scored 14 for the Wizards. Thomas extended the game by hitting two free throws in the closing seconds or regulation. Isaiah Thomas, especially not on the night of what would have been the 23rd birthday of his late sister Chyna.

Thomas scored 29 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, which nearly matched the Wizards as a team, who scored 30.

Wall made 7-of-10 shots and set-up 15 points in assists in the first quarter as the Wizards too advantage of nine Boston turnovers while making none in building the 13-point first-round edge, their largest lead of the first half.

He scored a then career-high 52 points against the Miami Heat during the regular season.

No one knew for sure if he would play due to a left ankle sprain in Game 1.

Terry Rozier came off the bench and was another player who scored in double digits (12 points). "There was a point today where he was not feeling good at all".

Any way you want to look at it, the performance was remarkable, especially considering Thomas underwent multiple hours of dental surgery before the game. And never in my life have I ever thought about quitting.

To even be playing under these circumstances was impressive, but the fact that Thomas is somehow even stepping up his play is nearly unbelievable.

Before Game 1 of the Boston-Washington series, Celtics coach Brad Stevens was asked about the lack of deep playoff experience for a team that hadn't made it out of the first round the past two seasons.
