Isaiah Thomas has solidified himself as one of the top scoring threats in the fourth quarter this season.
The two-time All-Star had a laugh about the Eastern Conference coaches, Brad Stevens and the rest of the Celtics' staff, benching him down the stretch. In a post on Thomas' Instagram account, the All-Star wrote, "Y'all Taking me out in the 4th now huh? You must not know what time it is LOL #AllStarGame."

It was likely a smart move on Stevens' part to give Thomas some extra rest as we enter the home stretch of the NBA season. The All-Star guard will just have to wait to get back to it when the Celtics head to Toronto on Friday for the first game after the break.
