In the Kings’ 117-111 OT win against the Wizards, the little guard who could Isaiah Thomas racked up his first career triple-double with 24 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists.
“Isaiah is someone that gets a lot of criticism for being a guy that may not be a true point guard,” said Kings coach Michael Malone. “You can call him a lot of things but you have to give him his props because he’s a warrior and he has a huge heart. For him to go out there and get 24-11-10 while being the smallest guy on the court was tremendous. The fact that he did it against one of the rising stars in the game, John Wall, is that much more impressive. I’m really proud of Isaiah and his first career triple-double. I’m sure it won’t be his last. We just need more of that from him.”
