Thomas cooled down in the second half, but overall it was a solid return for a guy who hasn't played in an NBA game since Feb. 3 of last year. He finished with 10 points (4-of-13 from the field, 2-of-6 from 3), with two assists, two rebounds, and four turnovers in 25 minutes.

Next up for I.T. as he hopes to turn his 10-day contract into a full-time deal is a meeting with the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night. Tip-off for that matchup is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.
