The win was their third in four games, and furthered their hold on top spot in the East over the Raptors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. And when the buzzer finally sounded and the Cleveland crowd erupted for a player it barely knows, Thomas took the last few steps onto the court and completed a trip he hopes to never take again. They took an 81-68 advantage into the fourth and the Cavs were outscored 21-20 in the final 12 minutes.
How many minutes for Isaiah? . Thomas, however, doesn't contribute much on defense due to his size and his lack of effort. Was he saying the Cavs lucked out by getting past Boston to make the Finals previous year and a healthy Thomas would have swayed the series the other way? The backlash came from people believing Thomas should have just accepted the video tribute when the Celtics wanted to give it to him without taking away anything from Pierce's special night.
Pierce is first in Celtics history in free throws, three-pointers and steals, among other categories, and he is second to John Havlicek in points. He poured in 17 points and was 6-of-12 from the field. "He is a spark and the jump we needed on our team right now".
Thomas tallied 17 points in 19 minutes of play as he embarks on a soft return to National Basketball Association action following injuries to his hip and shoulder.
What should have been a slugfest between the two best teams in the Eastern Conference was a slaughter, as the Celtics rolled over the Cavaliers, 102-88. "He's going to add quite a bit to their team".
"It's been a long journey for me", Thomas said. He displayed his usual array of offensive moves, driving to the hoop with relative ease despite his 5-foot-9 stature while also knocking down shots from deep.
Aldridge sank 29 points, while Leonard notched a season-high 25 points, made eight rebounds and four assists.
Damian Lillard scored 25 for the Blazers after missing five games with a hamstring injury. He played just a handful of minutes with LeBron and Love in his debut, and is will continue to be on a minutes restriction that will sit him out of the Cavs' next game against Boston. Kyrie Irving led the Celtics in scoring against their last opponent, the Nets. The Cavs also lost Kevin Love after just 21 minutes of action (ankle) on Wednesday, but the power forward had just two points on one-of-11 shooting before his injury. The Celtics are 3.5-point home favorites.
Kyrie Irving, who Clevelandtraded to Boston, has been the straw that stirs just about everything the Celtics do. And it's not going to vibe right with LeBron for a while.
Despite all this, the Cavs have the best player in the world, and this alone is enough to give them a big chance in any game they play. He suggested Thomas's video tribute should be sent to him by the Celtics "on Twitter or Instagram".
