First and foremost, let's send out our condolences to New Orleans Pelicans guard Tim Frazier and his right ankle. Following the Celtics' 104-97 victory tonight, Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry jokingly said, "My guess is he'll be out for the next 2 1/2 years," however, it is believed that Frazier will be available for Friday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

OK, now that we got that out of the way... wow, Isaiah Thomasliterally destroyed Frazier's ankle! Usually, when we get an impressive "ankle-breaker," like this one or this one or this one, these victims tend to get up and live to fight for another play. Frazier, on the other hand, had to be taken out of the game because of the damage Thomas did to his ankle with the jab step. Just brutal. 

To sum it up, Thomas filled up the stat sheet with 32 points, eight assists, four boards, four turnovers, two steals and one broken ankle.
