For Isaiah Thomas, no hard feelings in his return to Boston

201801032050750058518

Isaiah Thomas wanted to make thing one perfectly clear during his return to Boston: He isn't holding onto any hard feelings about the way he left. Thomas returned to TD Garden on Wednesday night for the first time since he was dealt to the Cleveland Cavaliers in August as part of the blockbuster trade that brought Kyrie Irving to the Celtics. It was the lowest point of a whirlwind summer for Thomas, which was compounded by his ongoing recovery from the hip injury that cut short his postseason run with Boston last season.

Kyrie Irving breaks silence on Cavaliers exit: ‘They didn’t want me there’

Kyrie Irving and LeBron James share a moment after their first meeting since parting ways. If you thought Kyrie Irving and LeBron James weren’t going to give us the satisfaction of lobbing passive-aggressive digs at one another through the media before Wednesday night’s game between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers, you are sorely mistaken, because they’re at it again. Thanks to Hall of Fame basketball writer Jackie MacMullan, who went deep behind Irving’s breakup with James and the Cavs for ESPN.com, we were treated to an exchange between the ex-teammates, delivered 650 miles and a week apart early last month, that captured their relationship perfectly.

Will Isaiah Thomas Face Celtics? Stephen A. Smith Can’t Understand Cavaliers’ Decision to Rest Him in Boston

The Cleveland Cavaliers travel to TD Garden on Wednesday night to take on the Eastern Conference-leading Boston Celtics, in perhaps the biggest game for either team since they met on October 17, opening night. Isaiah Thomas, though, won’t be suiting up against the team he left in the summer. Thomas played 19 minutes on his comeback, and Cavaliers debut, against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night.

Damian Lillard outdueled Isaiah Thomas in a battle of returning All-Star guards on Tuesday night, but Thomas’ team had the last laugh. Thomas scored 17 points off the bench in his season and Cavaliers debut to help host Cleveland top the Portland Trail Blazers 127-110 despite Lillard’s 25-point night. Thomas, who before the game said he was excited to show fans what they wanted to see after he missed the first 36 games of the season recovering from a hip injury, did not disappoint.

Cavs to rest Thomas against former Celtics teammates

Isaiah Thomas finally played his first game with the Cleveland Cavaliers in Tuesday night's 127-110 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. The former Boston Celtics' little scoring machine will not, however, play his second game with the Cavs when his new team invades TD Garden for the second meeting of the season between last year's Eastern Conference finalists. Thomas will be with the Cavs and has asked the Celtics not to give him a video tribute, a wish granted by Boston with the thought that could come in the future — like Feb. 11 when Cleveland returns on Paul Pierce jersey retirement day.
