WATCH: Isaiah Thomas loses his shoe but doesn't stop playing defense

Mike DePrisco

Isaiah Thomas doesn't have too many defensive highlights in his career, but the third quarter of Wizards vs. Magic produced a classic one. 

After passing off to Davis Bertans, Thomas' shoe came off. The Magic were on the break so he didn't have time to pop it back on, so Thomas picked it up and ran back the other way to play defense. 

Thomas then slid it back on to guard DJ Augustin and help the Wizards get a stop.

Once the Wizards got the ball back, Thomas rose up and drilled a three on the following play. 

Legendary. 

The Wizards don't get many stops on the defensive end, so it's hilariously ironic that one of the stops they actually got against Orlando came when arguably their worst defensive player was playing with one shoe on.
