Dirk Nowitzki scored a season-high 22 points, Harrison Barnes had 21 and the last-place Dallas Mavericks spoiled Isaiah Thomas' strong debut with the Lakers, beating Los Angeles 130-123 on Saturday night. Thomas, who didn't want to be traded, returned to his old self with 22 points, a total he surpassed just once in fifteen games in Cleveland. With the trade deadline for the 2017-2018 National Basketball Association season just hours away, the Cavaliers sent point guard Isaiah Thomas, power forward Channing Frye, and their franchise's own 2018 first-round draft pick to the Lakers. Hood is an efficient scorer, averaging 15 points, shooting 54 percent from the field and a whopping 50 percent from beyond the arc. With that being said, the Mavericks haven't been in great form and are coming into this game fresh off a double-digit loss to the Warriors, but I like their chances against the new-look Lakers who could be shorthanded for this one. We are going to get him playing and get him used to what we do and I told him that for us, it doesn't matter who starts and who doesn't. He got a crash course before the Lakers faced the Mavericks, as Coach Luke Walton did what he could to simplify matters in the short time they had to prepare.

"I wanted to bring something to the table", said Thomas, according to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.

"I'm feeling good. I'm all right", he said of the hip, per Ryan Ward of Clutch Points.

It's no secret that Isaiah Thomas didn't manage to ingratiate himself well with the Cavs during his brief stint in Cleveland.

"I'm here and happy and I've got my joy back and I'm ready to put on a show for the Lakers", he said.

The Lakers appeared to be surging toward victory when they embarked on a late 13-4 run (keyed by six points from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope) to take a 118-117 lead with about five minutes left. "So, it's different for everyone, but I assume someone that plays like him he'll be just fine".

As a result of the trade, the Lakers have freed up the necessary cap space to sign two max deals for superstars if they can arrange to do so in free agency. "I don't think it was a chemistry off the court thing because I went and talked to those guys all the time". In contrast, The combined contracts of Thomas and Frye equal less than $14 million and are set to expire at the end of the current season. "I'm happy to be in Los Angeles and to get that joy and happiness back of playing and just working hard each and every day". You're gonna see. He's gonna ball. I mean, I don't know really any plays. Obviously, I am going to help him out.
