Isaiah Thomas on blocking DeMarcus Cousins at the rim: "I did it a couple of times in practice. You can put that on paper. Nah, we were joking around and, when I blocked it, it was good. We always joke around in the game and I was able to talk a little trash to him." Cousins joked with Thomas outside the locker room post game that it was a goaltend.
