Isaiah Thomas was out grocery shopping in Seattle when Mavs GM Nico Harrison called him today about signing a 10-day contract. He asked me, ‘You think you can play tonight.? I said, ‘Hell yeah I can play tonight.’ ” So Thomas hopped on a plane and flew to Sacramento. – 1:41 AM

That’s a really solid opening qtr at both ends for Mavs. Shoot 11-21. Hold SAC to 9-23. And for a guy who arrived four hours before game time. Isaiah Thomas looks pretty darn good. He knows how to run a team – 11:07 PM
