Isaiah Thomas' 20-point streak reaches Celtics' record 41 games

Isaiah Thomas' 20-point streak reaches Celtics' record 41 games

The Boston Celtics were not happy with the way they lost to the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night.

Butler added seven assists for Chicago (28-29), while Isaiah Thomas led the Celtics with 29 points. Butler sized up defender Marcus Smart from well behind the 3-point line until there were less than three seconds on the clock, then put the ball on the floor, took two hard dribbles right, spun left and went up for a jumper. "That's horrible.the Bulls were even shocked".

"That's disgusting when it costs you a game you should have won. That's a bad call".

In watching the replay, there was a small amount of contact between Smart's hand and Butler's elbow during the shot.

But the call from Zarba came with less than a tenth of a second to play, a call made that wasn't made until Butler's shot attempt clearly going to come up short.

"A foul is a foul", he told reporters, according to the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson. He made the call. Hoiberg said the Bulls will welcome back forward Nikola Mirotic, who missed the past two games with a sore back. "It was a roller coaster of emotions".

The Celtics' game is the league's final contest before Sunday's NBA All-Star Game. All things considered, being six (games) in nine (days) I was proud of the way we competed. "I love Kyrie's game man, and he's a really good dude". What's more, Smart has been playing some of the best basketball of his young NBA career lately and will be thrust into a national spotlight for the wrong reasons in the aftermath of Thursday's game.

If you ask the officials on hand, it went to the Bulls when Jimmy Butler pulled up for a potential game-winner, defended by Celtics guard Marcus Smart.

On Wednesday night, Smart was spectacular while registering 21 points and eight steals as the Celtics defeated the visiting Philadelphia 76ers. Doug McDermott struggled with his shot, but he managed to score 11 points and hit some big shots down the stretch.

Smart is one of the few players the Celtics ought to consider untouchable unless an opponent wants to give away a bona fide All-Star for his services.

The Celtics had problems most of the game keeping Portis in check.
