In his first season with the Pistons Isiah Thomas would average a solid 17.0 ppg. However he was out done by fellow 1st Round pick Kelly Tripuka who averaged 21.6 ppg in his rookie season. The 2 rookies would each help the Pistons get back into playoff contention as they missed the final playoff spot by just 3 games finishing in 3rd place with a 39-43 record.
