Isaiah Thomas rested during the fourth quarter on Wednesday against the Bucks, as the Celtics wrapped up the No. 1 seed in the East.
He finished tonight with eight assists, four boards, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block in addition to his scoring total. Thomas finishes the season with 76 games played and without any worrisome injuries on his record. More importantly, he returned first round value on a per game basis, averaging 28.9 points, 3.2 3-pointers, 2.7 boards, 5.9 assists and 0.9 steals per contest for owners who stole him in the second round. The Celtics remain at the epicenter of the NBA offseason, but it’s hard to imagine Thomas seeing a significant change in role next season. He should be a locked in early round target in drafts next season.
