VIDEO: Isaiah Thomas with an absurd bucket

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

In a preseason tilt with the Warriors last night, Kings guard Isaiah Thomas made this field goal, which... I mean... it's... just wow.

I particularly like Curry making the attempt at the steal while falling over, and the fact that he managed to jump off the one leg to full extension and then shoot. Curry's dogging him pretty badly there, even if he's not a great perimeter defender.

Thomas is questioned because of his size and a lack of elite athleticism but the little dude just makes things happen. This shot isn't exemplary of that, it's just a desperation heave that happened to fall. But his tenacity is unquestionable, that's why he stuck with the play. That's why he got the shot up.

The season starts Tuesday.
