Kings' Thomas named rookie of the month

Kings point guard Isaiah Thomas was named today by the NBA as the Western Conference rookie of the month for February

In February, Thomas led all Western Conference rookies in scoring at 12.2 points per game and was second in assists with 4.4. In the first five starts of his career, the point guard scored 96 points, matching Otis Birdsong's 1970-71 franchise record for most points in a player's first five games.

Thomas will be back on the court tonight when the Kings take on the Los Angeles Clippers at 7 p.m. at Power Balance Pavilion.

The Cleveland Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving was named rookie of the month in the Eastern Conference after leading all rookies in scoring (19.3) and minutes (35.3). He scored 20 or more six times in February.
