Wednesday's Mashup: Isaiah Thomas scores 17 points in Cavaliers debut

Isaiah Thomas has a knack for big performances in Boston, and Cleveland certainly could have used one from him last night.

Thomas spoke about the reaction he received from the Cavaliers fans as well. As he is prone to do, the 5-foot-9 lefty kept it real with the reporters.

The relationship between Thomas and Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge, though, is another matter. San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich benched Manu Ginobili, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker and Rudy Gay with his team playing the second of back-to-back games.

Thomas, who had asked the team not to play a video tribute for him until he is healthy enough to play in Boston, pounded his chest in acknowledgement of the crowd. At 25-13, they're now third in the East, 4? games back of No. 1 Boston and two games behind the No. 2 Toronto Raptors, whom they play later on their five-game trip. There's no hard feelings to anybody in this city or anybody in this organization. He got up and shook off the contact, clearing another important hurdle in his journey back.

"Offensively, we got some good looks, but they just didn't fall for us", Love said.

The Suns' search for a point guard since Eric Bledsoe's departure has not been going well, and Tyler Ulis proved Tuesday in a 104-103 win over the Hawks that he is likely not the answer. "So even when we're out there scrimmaging, I can move around and do what I want, but I just don't have my powers yet". "Like a big brother to me", Rozier said.

Terry Rozier scored 20 points in 20 minutes, stealing the spotlight from LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas in a rematch of the Eastern Conference final and leading the Boston Celtics to a 102-88 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night.

In 19 minutes he scored 17 points, admitting after it was over that he got a little winded at times and was sore when he woke up the next morning.

Thomas made his first appearance at the new Boston Garden since the trade, but he did not play.

Salah scored 38 goals in 2017 for clubs and country - a huge total for an inverted winger cum forward. Taking home the women's national team of the year award was South Africa's senior side.

Boston has integrated Irving into the lineup pretty well and is now sitting atop the Eastern Conference with a 31-10 record.

To say Boston has bounced back from that rough night is an understatement.

"This is obviously our first time playing together, but you can see moments where he added a dynamic that we need, especially if we want to get to where we want to be", Wade said.

"I was out for seven months". The Celtics came into the contest with a strong pedigree on defense and put that on display by limiting the Cavaliers to just 35 percent (31-of-89) shooting from the field and 25 percent (8-of-32) on 3-pointers.

Thomas said it won't be hard to sit out this time, but he's circled the Feb.11 return visit by the Cavs to Boston.

Paul Pierce seems frustrated that a supposed conflict has emerged between him and Isaiah Thomas.

"What I like most about him is he has a chip on his shoulder for life", James said.

"I don't know why they're so mad about it". Crowder was the final starter introduced and a very brief highlight video was shown on the jumbotron, followed by the message "Thank you, Jae!" The Wine & Gold have made at least 10 three-pointers in 26 straight games, which is tied for the 3rd-longest streak in National Basketball Association history (Boston, 26 straight from 1/21/2017-3/15/2017).
