Isaiah Thomas was definitely enjoying his first taste of big minutes against his former Celtics teammates Wednesday night.
Towards the end of the first half with the Wizards down five, Bradley Beal found Thomas on the kick out. Thomas rose up, buried the three in Marcus Smart's face and gave his former teammate a nice pat on the rear end before running back to play defense.
Thomas got plenty of cheers from the Boston faithful when he was introduced and wasted no time getting his first bucket for the Wizards.
Little defense was played in the first half of this one, with both teams scoring over 30 points in each of the first two quarters. 50 points was probably too ambitious a goal to set before the game for Thomas, but you can't say he didn't put on a good show.
