Early in the first quarter after an Isaac Bonga layup, Fultz was re-lacing his shoes when Thomas came over and tried to prevent him from achieving that goal.
Fultz played his college ball at the University of Washington just as Thomas did. The Wizards' guard has been a mentor for Fultz early in his career, so he took the opportunity to have a little fun with him.
Meanwhile, untying his shoes may be the best form of defense on Fultz. He scored a career-high 19 points against Washington three weeks ago and came out on fire Tuesday night.
