I.T. reveals awesome detail about game-winner for C's in 2017 originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
It's impossible for any Celtics fan to forget Isaiah Thomas' incredible 2016-17 season.
I.T.'s 28.9 points per game average ranked third in the NBA, and he cemented his "King of the Fourth" nickname with a string of unbelievable performances, including a 44-point outburst against Memphis, a 52-point explosion (including a 29-point fourth quarter) against the Heat, and three more 40-point games in a seven-game span in late January/early February. And that's not even including his unforgettable 53-point playoff game against the Wizards.
One of the Celtics point guard's high points of the 2016-17 season came four years ago Wednesday when he buried a step-back jumper over Kent Bazemore with two seconds left to beat the Hawks, 103-101.
Thomas added some additional context on his great night -- and his game-winner, which you can watch above -- via social media Wednesday afternoon, using some NSFW language:

Thomas didn't let the fresh ink slow him down that night: The game-winner capped another great fourth quarter, with Thomas scoring 13 of his game-high 28 points in the final stanza.
