Isaiah Thomas did it all last night in game 2 against the Wizards. When they needed him the most(4th Qtr & OT), Thomas scored 29 of his career high 53 points, and he did it on his late sister Chyna’s 23rd birthday. Why has Thomas been playing so well? We may have found the reason. According to A. Sherrod Blakely, Thomas has been doing some film study with the “Mamba.” He has been getting support from Kobe Bryant since game 2 against the Bulls.
“He was going over my film with me, and teaching me things he looks at when he watches film. That’s probably been a big help for me,” Thomas said.
Thomas said Bryant reached out to him after the death of his sister.
If he keeps playing like this, Thomas might need talk to Bryant all the time.
