Isaiah Thomas Scores 42 Points In G League Debut

Dec 16, 2021 10:17 AM

Isaiah Thomas' G League debut was a good one. Thomas scored 42 for the Grand Rapids Gold in their loss to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

Thomas started at point guard and shot 16-of-30 from the floor. He also grabbed six rebounds, dished out eight assists and nabbed two steals. Teammate, and fellow NBA veteran, Lance Stephenson put up a triple-double of 18 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists in the loss.

Thomas is hoping to use his time with the Gold to launch a return to the NBA. The plan is for Thomas to play in the upcoming G League Showcase, where every NBA team will have front office staff on-hand to scout G League players.
