Isaiah Thomas laments ’embarrassing’ blowout loss to Timberwolves
Following the lopsided contest, Wizards point guard Isaiah Thomas admitted that his team had absolutely nothing to be proud of with what turned out to be an embarrassing performance from the entire Wizards team.
Isaiah Thomas: "That was an embarrasing game for us. It should not happen again. … We addressed it. It won't happen again. We got to be the hardest playing team every night or we won't give ourselves a chance and if we don't understand that, it will be a long season for us." pic.twitter.com/fZ2Sl9OOdO

Isaiah Thomas actually had himself quite a ballgame against the Wolves, logging 16 points (on 6-of-14 shooting), two 3-pointers, four rebounds, seven assists, and a block in 20 minutes of the Wizards bench. The veteran guard ended up as the second top-scorer for Washington, behind Bradley Beal’s 30-point performance.
Thomas has been a revelation for the Wizards thus far, with the 30-year-old currently averaging 16.3 points (on 46.2 percent from the floor), 3.0 rebounds, and 7.3 assists, while also knocking down 2.7 3-pointers per ballgame on an impressive 40.0-percent clip.
Thomas is looking as healthy as he has been in the past few years, and given all the issues with Washington’s current roster, it would not be surprising if the two-time All-Star is able to keep up this pace throughout the season. The big question, however, is if he will be able to stay healthy for a full year.
Thomas’ multiple bouts with injuries have been well-documented, and this has been the biggest drawback to his game. However, if he is able to surpass the 60-game mark this year, then surely, this would be considered as quite an achievement by his standards.
