Cam Thomas shone with a 36-point performance on Wednesday, hitting 13 of 20 shots. Despite his efforts, the Nets lost 114-113 to Cleveland.
In a crucial moment, Thomas’s final shot fell short, prompting coach Jacque Vaughn’s attempt to call a timeout for Mikal Bridges.
Thomas, a key offensive contributor off the bench, quickly turned the game around by scoring 15 points in just seven minutes in the first quarter.
His scoring prowess, previously glimpsed last season, was vital for the Nets, especially when Bridges struggled.
Thomas ended the first half with an impressive 24 points.
“It felt good, obviously,” Thomas said of his performance. “Obviously, you want to win, but it’s good to always reflect on what you do well.”
