Isaiah Thomas has big night, drops 26 on Cavaliers, Kyrie Irving (VIDEO)

Isaiah Thomas the starting point guard may have had the best night yet in that role for the Kings Sunday.

Going against a Cavaliers team that had played a couple good games in a row since the Luol Deng trade, Sacramento completely dismantled Cleveland, especially in the second half (winning by 44) and Thomas was central of that. He just completely outplayed Kyrie Irving on the night — Thomas had 26 points (Irving had 7 points on 3-of-14 shooting) and more than that Thomas had the Kings playing efficiently on offense. The Kings get in trouble when other teams push the pace on them, which happens when they turn the ball over a lot or miss a lot of shots, but when they score and can get back and set the defense they are solid. That Thomas was orchestrating a strong offense was key to them on both ends of the court.

Also, the Thomas/Rudy Gay/DeMarcus Cousins trio is finding some chemistry. Pair them with a good catch-and-shoot floor spacer (Jimmer Fredette? although his defense is a disaster) and you may have something.
