Celtics' Jae Crowder: Takes 13 shots in Sunday's loss

Crowder produced 15 points (3-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 36 minutes in Sunday's 105-99 loss at Philadelphia.

Sunday marked the eighth time all season that Crowder took 13 or more shot attempts. The Boss Man was helping make up for the second consecutive absence of Isaiah Thomas (knee), but it wasn't enough as Boston struggled down the stretch. The Celtics clearly missed Thomas, shooting only 40% from the field as a team. Boston is hopeful Thomas will return Monday night, the start of a six-game home stand, versus Washington.
