Thomas scores 17 points in debut for Cavaliers

Thomas scores 17 points in debut for Cavaliers

In nine minutes with Thomas on the court and James off, the Cavaliers outscored the Trail Blazers 31-13.

But all this time, we have known how Thomas feels about Celtics GM Danny Ainge.

The Cavs bring a three-game skid into tonight's game against Portland, but are in third place in the conference - four games back of the Celtics. But he says he's now moved a lot closer to a water-under-the-bridge mentality.

Thomas picked up a quick assist with a pass to Crowder, who came with him from Boston in the summer trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Celtics and shook the National Basketball Association.

"I keep saying I gave that city everything I have and they showed me genuine love back", he said, "and that love is going to last forever". "The only hard feeling is Danny didn't send me no Christmas card this year". "I know it will be all love", he said. He was a great player in the time that he spent with us - certainly had a year that was nearly unmatched by anybody last year.

"He's very good, very good", LeBron said after the Cavaliers beat the Blazers 127-110. Playing for the first time since he was named Eastern Conference player of the week, Beal, a former Gator standout, followed his 39-point outburst on Sunday by hitting 11 of 14 field goals for Washington, which has won five of six.

James has played 47 times against Boston and has been typically dominant in these games.

Cleveland's LeBron James said of Thomas' return: "It was great". "I just wanted my family to be here to see it".

"I was out for seven months". Since then they are just 8-6, and their defense has dropped off significantly.

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. "I'm not taking nothing from Paul Pierce".

The resolve it took for him to do that while at the same time having to stand on a stepladder to look someone like LeBron James in the eye is the same edgy stubbornness that made it so hard to accept Ainge's decision.

But Tuesday night was great first step for Thomas in his return to the floor. And this time, the crowd rose to its feet for a standing ovation. Was he saying the Cavs lucked out by getting past Boston to make the Finals a year ago and a healthy Thomas would have swayed the series the other way?

Lue said the Cavs will turn to little-used veteran to start at point guard.

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, routing host Orlando.

It's a Big Three that figures to be a force to be reckoned with. He will take some of the scoring load and playmaking responsibility off James, whose usage has increased this season.

Which means that despite the positive development, Thomas won't be making a surprise appearance Monday when the Cavs play the.

Bayless went as far as to proclaim that the Cavs are now Thomas' team. "My attitude is he has to do what's best for the team, and I think for me, it's to be a pro and do what I got to do and be ready to go whenever". He's had one for his entire career. He put his body on the line to help the team and he paid for it. Boston traded him soon thereafter.
