Isaiah Thomas returns to score 19 points, US beats Bahamas
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Isaiah Thomas scored 19 points in his first competitive game in more than a year, helping the U.S. to a 93-77 victory over the Bahamas in a FIBA AmeriCup qualifying game. Thomas is a two-time NBA All-Star who scored 28.9 points per game for the Boston Celtics in the 2016-17 season. But he suffered a hip injury late in that season and has never regained that form in limited opportunities. The 5-foot-9 guard showed his shot is still there, making three straight 3-pointers early on to send the Americans out to an 11-2 lead. But he also committed six turnovers.
