Isaiah Thomas stuffs Bernard James at the rim

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Spor

The Kings' point guard turned the Mavs' big man away at the rim, but did he actually get credit for the rejection?

Perhaps Bernard James will think twice in the future before attacking the rim with the Kings' shot-blocker hanging around, especially if the "hand is part of the ball" rule is in effect.

Side note: Isaiah Thomas was not credited for a block on this play. What say you? Was this a rejection?
