It ain't easy becoming a 5-foot-9 NBA All-Star. Isaiah Thomas did so this season, thanks in large part to his handles. If the NBA added a "Ball-Handler of the Year Award," Thomas would be in the running with the Stephen Currys, Russell Westbrooks and John Walls of the league.
Tim Frazier learned that the hard way last night, injuring his ankle on a Thomas dribble.
Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier!
Luckily for Frazier, he escaped with nothing more than a rolled ankle.
Tim Frazier said after game that his ankle will be fine for Friday's game vs. Lakers: "I feel good. I just twisted it pretty badly."

Still, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry threw some shade at his embarrassed guard.

After spending some time in the D-League earlier this year, Frazier has been finishing the season strong. But this play is destined to lead off his lowlight reel.
