Isaiah Thomas scored 28 points on 9-of-21 shooting (including five threes and the game-winner) with four rebounds and nine assists on Friday against the Hawks.
Thomas is returning top 11-14 value and after taking over yet another fourth quarter he is taking the discussion from whether or not he is an All Star to whether or not he should start in that game. We could be leaking at his peak season but if he doesn’t take as much contact as past years it’s possible the upward trajectory continues for another year or two. Alex Oriakhi added zero points and zero rebounds in approximately zero minutes, mostly because he was not a participant in this game and does not play in the NBA.
