Isaiah Thomas opens up on return from injury

Isaiah Thomas opens up on return from injury

"I'm not saying Isaiah shouldn't get a tribute video", Pierce said.

Thomas has slowly worked his way into game shape, scrimmaging first against the G-League Canton Charge and then with his teammates a few days ago. "Like a big brother to me", Rozier said. Boston improved to an Eastern Conference-best 31-10, while the Cavs dropped to 25-13. Rose, who has missed the past five games and nine games total this season because of a sprained left ankle, is in a walking boot and expected to miss at least the next two weeks.

End of quarter: Cavs 28, Blazers 28: Thomas scores his first points as a Cavalier on a pull-up jumper and proceeds to add an and-1 layup, helping his new team even the score by the end of the first quarter. We know what we have.

"My hip is better, but I have no rhythm", he said.

He averaged more points than Kyrie.

It will take some time for Thomas to return to the complete form he consistently showed previous year, considering Tuesday was his first game action since Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals and Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reported there will be an initial minutes restriction, but he appreciated the moment following the victory.


When host Rachel Nichols pushed back to vouch for Thomas, Pierce offered a compromise: "Well, you could Instagram it". "That's not the way that's going to help the team", Calderon said.

Celtics play-by-play announcer Mike Gorman isn't the only one who has an issue with the team airing an Isaiah Thomas tribute video the same night as Paul Pierce's jersey retirement.

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge confirmed on 98.5 The Sports Hub's Toucher and Rich that the team, as of now, still plans to show Thomas' tribute on February 11. While the spokesman was not able to clarify why Thomas made that request, the Cavs guard clarified the move later in the day in responding to a tweet that accused him of egoism. "You talk about when he starts the game and comes out early, and then LeBron comes out for a breather and Isaiah goes back out with the second unit - think about how many scorers and players they can have out there with him. It ain't about me it's about my family". Boston had to include Jae Crowder.

"Fans have cheered for opposing team's players before", he told the Boston Globe's Gary Washburn. "After the shots or whatever is going to come, I feel pretty comfortable playing with these guys".

The Cavaliers held off the Celtics in the first game of the 2017-18 season.
