Isaiah Thomas makes Pelicans debut, scores 10 points in loss vs. Hawks

Isaiah Thomas made his debut for the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday, scoring 10 points in 25 minutes off the bench. It was his first NBA action since Feb. 3, 2020, when Thomas played for the Washington Wizards.

The 32-year-old guard hit a catch-and-shoot three-pointer to score his first points in a Pelicans uniform.

Thomas quickly scored eight points in his first nine minutes on the court. But he then went cold, making one of his next eight shot attempts to finish 4-for-13 on the night. 

The Pelicans lost the contest to the Atlanta Hawks, 123-107. Trae Young spearheaded Atlanta with 30 points and 12 assists, while Zion Williamson's 34 points led New Orleans.
