The Celtics play the Cleveland Cavaliers, and it will be the first time Isaiah Thomas will return to Boston on the active roster.

The next time they see their former teammate, he probably won't be in a hoodie after watching from the bench.

And it won't be so easy.

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Isaiah Thomas made his return to Boston on Wednesday, but he was held out of their game against the Celtics just a day after finally making his season debut.

"How much do I watch the Celtics?" he repeated.

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

Thomas' first field goal was a 14-footer off a James assist with 1:11 to go in the quarter.

"I enjoyed watching that throughout the game", Pierce said. Jimmy Butler missed at the buzzer as the Timberwolves lost for just the second time in nine games. After missing the first few months of the season with a hip injury, however, the team felt it was best to avoid competing in back-to-back games right out of the gate. The video tribute ain't the whole night. In that time, he stewed over his departure from Boston, where he developed into an All-Star and fan favorite.

"We had some good stuff going in the second quarter", Korver said. "But I'm more concerned about us getting better and better. We will be fine, though". Rozier scored 20 points as the Celtics defeated the Cavaliers 102-88. Thomas said its up to the Celtics whether they want to do something that night for him.




Terry Rozier expects the Garden to be rocking with James in the house. "He opened up the game for a lot of us". In just 19 minutes off the bench, Thomas scored 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting and dished out three assists as the Cavs picked up a 127-110 victory over the Blazers. Earlier this year, Sports Illustrated quoted Thomas wondering whether he would ever speak to Ainge again after the trade.

Thomas didn't play when the Cavaliers and Celtics played on January 3, and the team was originally going to honor him with the tribute video then. He received a roaring standing ovation and acknowledged the sellout crowd in a heartfelt manner.

Brown provided the highlight of the night with a reverse jam in the third quarter, and Tatum did a couple excellent Kyrie Irving impressions, seemingly weaving through every player on the Cavs roster to get to the hoop.

Thomas said he has a long way to go before he feels like himself on the court.

"It was a special moment", Thomas said of the reception.

"There's still movements that I'm scared to do". I'm not in that good of a shape. With Thomas, the Cavs can afford to put in more "defensive-minded" players so they can begin shutting down their opponents instead of simply outscoring them.

Raptors 124, Bulls 115: DeMar DeRozan had 35 points and Delon Wright 25 points and 13 rebounds as Toronto beat Chicago.

Wizards 121, Knicks 103: Bradley Beal scored 27 points, John Wall added 25 with nine assists and Washington beat NY. Green made his first five three-point shots and finished 7-for-10 from behind the arc for the Rockets. Cleveland is off until Saturday, when it visits the Orlando Magic for the second contest of its five-game road trip.
