Isaiah Thomas dropped a team-high 24 points in his return to the lineup after leaving last game early after becoming violently ill.
Thomas was one of the few bright spots for a Kings team that is spiraling in the wrong direction. Thomas' 24 points on 10 of 21 shooting (4-for-10 from 3-point land) came against one of the better defensive point guards in the league in Mike Conley, and consider Thomas was probably not totally 100% healthy after falling ill last game.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Phillies recalled Cody Asche from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
The Phillies seem ready to commit to Asche as their new starting left fielder which certainly gums up the outfield configuration for veterans like Ben Revere, Grady Sizemore and Jeff Francoeur. It also displaces Darin Ruf. While they may be happy with the defensive work he did down in the minors, Asche's bat never really heated up, so the team is still going to have some serious offensive woes. This plan may have looked good on paper, but it should be re-visited in a couple of weeks to see how things are panning out. Analysis: Howard Bender
