Thomas set for Cavaliers debut vs. Blazers

Adjust Comment Print

Because Thomas will be on a minutes restriction against Portland and will not play in back-to-back games until he gets more time on the court, his focus at the outset is to regain the rhythm that allowed him to average a career-best 28.9 points along with 5.9 assists per game for the Celtics past year. That said, while Thomas's ecstatic personality and celebrations will be missed on the sidelines, Cavaliers fans will have even more fun watching him play side by side with LeBron James, Kevin Love, and the rest of the team. He can't get frustrated thinking it's going to happen overnight.

"My hip is better, but I have no rhythm", Thomas said when asked about his return. "They haven't even had Isaiah yet, and we all know how special he is". I think we play them in February again, so I can wait and put on a show then. But they've got to be patient and stay the course.

Bill, which was tabled at the Indian parliament last week, is likely to come up for discussion on Tuesday. However, emergency and critical services would continue.

The Cavaliers and Trail Blazers will face off in Cleveland at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday night on NBA TV. "I can wait until February". It would be highly unlikely he'd be peak Isaiah Thomas in his first game back from injury. Teammates expressed their joy on social media, sharing messages of encouragement or retweets of the Lue's announcement.Given the Cavs have lost three straight games and four of five, it's clear Thomas will be asked to provide an offensive spark. He tried to force the Cavs to play him last week in Sacramento and was denied. Get everything out of this game I possibly could. "It's been a long process for me". "And it might take some time but at the same time, the progress that I've made is all good and positive progress and I'm excited about the opportunity to be able to get out there and compete". He told NBC Sports Northwest that he could have played Monday against the Bulls and intends to play against the Cavs.
