Boston went 24-58 in 2006-07, and the victory, a 92-77 win over the Indiana Pacers, gave the Celtics a 60-15 record so far that season.
Still, for the Celtics, the regular season record was far from the focus. The first 50-win season of point guard Isaiah Thomas’ career.
“I’ve never won 50 games in my NBA career, so definitely was an individual goal of mine coming into this season to win 50 games and I’m just glad we got to that,” IT related at the time courtesy of the AP.
“But like I keep saying, we’ve got a lot more work to do.”
While no championship would be in the offing this season, Thomas had an outstanding performance in limited minutes, logging 19 points and 6 assists in only 24 minutes to push Boston over the 50-win threshold.
