Isaiah Thomas makes successful Cavs debut

The Celtics scraped over the line for the second consecutive game on Sunday, holding off the Brooklyn Nets to win 108-105. Marcus Smart and Jayson Tatum had 15 points apiece, and Irving and Al Horford each had 11 points and nine rebounds to lead Boston.

The Cavaliers meanwhile have recovered from an early-season dip in form to move up to third in the standings and, with Thomas back in the set-up, are expected to have a strong final few months.

Thomas made his Cavs debut Tuesday night, scoring 17 points in a 127-110 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Thomas hadn't played a minute this season until Tuesday night, when he made his debut in maroon and gold in Cleveland.

How many minutes for Isaiah? .

The Cavs will gradually increase Isaiah Thomas' minutes going forward, but even on limited minutes, he has already shown that he can still make a big impact on the floor.

The Thunder crushed the Lakers as Russell Westbrook's 20 points and 12 rebounds send Oklahoma City to a 133-96 win at Los Angeles.

Pierce said Thursday that he would prefer the Celtics not run their planned in-game tribute video for Thomas' on-court return February 11, the same night the Celtics will send Pierce's jersey to the rafters following a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"How much do I watch the Celtics?".

Portland are back home for two games starting Saturday morning against Atlanta. They just play off each other. And Love is having his best season in a Cavalier uniform in terms of offensive production.

LeBron James scored 19 points, seven rebounds and six assists as Cleveland (25-13) suffered their fourth loss in their last five games. Thomas led the Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals last season, playing his heart out after his sister, Chyna, was killed in a vehicle crash. Third in the National Basketball Association in minutes per game going into the night, James needed just 34 to help dispose of the Blazers, matching the fewest he's logged since November 28. While the team says Thomas has not experienced any setbacks, it has not updated that timeline. The man who left his Cavs to be the number one guy vs the man who he was traded for. "But [the fans] showed their true colors, like they always do, and that's - I keep saying it, but it's genuine love on both sides". Lou Williams led the way with 33 points while Blake Griffin had 21 points, eight assists and six boards. He's excited to measure up against LeBron James and the defending East champs.

Rockets 116, Magic 98: Gerald Green scored 27 points, Clint Capela had 21 points and eight rebounds and Houston got by without National Basketball Association scoring leader James Harden, who was sidelined by a strained left hamstring. Thomas converted the free throw.

Boston have been given slight favoritism in this game by oddsmakers, who have given them a one point handicap.

And yet, in this trade, it was Boston that had to give up not- it wasn't Kyrie for IT straight up.

Stevens took a circumspect approach to the rematch with the Cavs.

Damian Lillard outdueled Isaiah Thomas in a battle of returning All-Star guards yesterday morning (Singapore time), but Thomas' team had the last laugh. They've given me the opportunity to be who I always wanted to be and I can't thank them enough. And of course, the Cavs-with Thomas-were back in Boston last night.
