Thomas led the Boston Celtics sixth straight win against Lakers

Isaiah Thomas scored 38 points to lead the Boston Celtics to a milestone win over the Los Angeles Lakers, a 113-107 triumph that earned Boston's Brad Stevens an All-Star coaching job.

Isaiah Thomas continued his memorable fourth quarter assault, this time scoring 17 of his 38 points in the fourth.

Jae Crowder scored 14 points for the Celtics and Al Horford had 11.

D'Angelo Russell and Lou Williams each scored 20 points for the Lakers.

Raptors: G DeMar DeRozan was out for the fifth time in six games with a right ankle injury. And the Celtics nosed ahead of the Lakers as the NBA's all-time winningest franchise: They had been tied with 3,252 victories entering this game.

Finally, Zurcher Kantonalbank Zurich Cantonalbank raised its stake in shares of Ford Motor Company by 4.6% in the second quarter. The difference between the expected and actual EPS was $-0.01/share, which represents an Earnings surprise of -3.2%.

But that didn't stop Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey from mentioning the Boston Celtics point guard in the same breath as the two National Basketball Association legends.

In a recent one-on-one interview with Boston Globe's Adam Himmelsbach, Paul Pierce commented on this season's Celtics team and called Thomas a "championship-type player". The Lakers cut it to 82-74 after three but couldn't get the deficit below six.

Maybe Thomas can finagle another sit-down chat like the one he had when Bryant played his final game at TD Garden a year ago.

Since a 10-10 start, the Lakers have gone 7-25 over the last two months.

But Thomas hit again from downtown, and Terry Rozier grabbed a defensive board and drove the floor for a coast-to-coast drive and a 92-80 Celtics lead with 8:13 left.

With the filing, the company also disclosed what has previously been uncertain - that it has 158 million daily active users . If it nears the $25bn mark it would give the company the richest valuation in a U.S. technology IPO since Facebook Inc .

Then in the 80s, the Lakers core of Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, James Worthy, Byron Scott and A.C. Green was complemented by the Celtics in the East with their group which featured Larry Bird, Robert Parish, Kevin McHale and Danny Ainge. In Boston's final possession of the second quarter, a roar rose up all around as he dribbled nonchalantly between his legs.

Thomas might have missed out on setting a franchise mark for 40-point games on Friday, but he's still got a chance to etch his name among Boston legends for other offensive streaks.

Early on, it looked like the Lakers might hold on to their claim to all-time wins for one more night.

"I think it's a unique-enough rivalry that 100 years from now it will probably be tied again", Stevens said. While the Celtics sold off Garnett and Pierce for a haul of draft picks, the Lakers paid Bryant a crippling $48.5 million to end his career in L.A.
