Two nights after toasting the Nuggets for a career-high, Ish Smith went off again against the Celtics to give the Wizards back-to-back wins over two of the best teams the league has to offer.
There must be something about Smith playing great teams because he's been unstoppable as of late. On Monday, he finished with 27 points on 12-18 shooting to go along with four assists.
We typically give you the top Wizards moments from after every game, but for this one, it just felt right to dedicate the whole thing to Smith. Here are his best moments from the game.
Moe losing his mind
As the Celtics stormed back in the fourth quarter after falling behind by 11 points at halftime, Smith took matters into his own hands to keep Boston at arm's length down the stretch.
When he started to cook and hit a bunch of jumpers in a row, Capital One Arena started to get loud. Once he hit another pair of jumpers, it went nuts.
And then Moe Wagner lost his mind.
Shiftiness in the lane
Before he went berzerk in the fourth quarter, Smith was giving the Celtics' bigs fits on switches.
Smith is already incredibly tough to contain off the dribble if you're a big man, but when he starts changing speeds? Forget it.
Without Bradley Beal and basically every other offensive weapon the Wizards have, Smith stepped up big to deliver consecutive wins against two of the best teams in the NBA.
When you dominate two top defenses in back-to-back defenses on a team decimated by injury, it's perfectly appropriate to get some MVP chants in front of your home crowd.
Smith missed the free throw unfortunately, and probably because he was distracted by the love, but the best part of this might have been Beal's face on the bench.

There's a zero-chance Smith actually wins the MVP award, but there's no question he's the team's MVP over the last week or so.
If it weren't for him, where would this Wizards team be? Certainly not 12-24.
