- I mean, he's been in this prime about 2 and 1/2, three years. The Cavs were outscored 21-20 in the final 12 minutes.

Wednesday's game will be the second matchup between the Celtics and Cavs, who have developed a rivalry in recent years. Sure, Crowder will be a nice role player for the Cavs, supplying defense and the occasional big scoring night, as he did in Boston.

"Cleveland, thank you! Tonight was a very special night for me and y'all made it what it was with the love y'all showed me when I checked in the game". 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). "Obviously my game isn't where I want it to be, but it showed a positive step in the right direction that I'm not far where I want to be". The only game in which the Cavs have shot worse was Christmas Day against the Golden State Warriors.

Speaking of I.T., since the National Basketball Association started recording minutes played in 1951-52, only four other players have scored as many points and played less than 20 minutes in a win in their first game for a team: Joe Caldwell (21 points for the St. Louis Hawks in 1965), Johnny Neumann (21 for the Buffalo Braves in 1976), Richie Frahm (18 for Timberwolves in 2005) and Tim Thomas (20 for Suns in 2006).

Despite the effort he put into the team, he was shipped out in a move Thomas didn't appreciate. "I know it will be all love", he said.


"We had some good looks, but they had a good defensive game plan and they executed", James said. That's the bigger thing.

Some seconds later, Thomas dropped in a layup after Shabazz Napier got whistled for a foul on the drive. "He is a spark and the jump we needed on our team right now". See what happens next. "For the most part when you get hurt the mental part is the toughest part".

While Thomas did not play in the game, the teams are set to meet again in February for what could be a preview of the Eastern Conference Finals. "There was no way I was going to (make my return) against Boston (until I'm fully healthy)". In the meantime, Thomas is just happy to get one game under his wings with the team. "There's no way I was coming back to Boston and play only 17 minutes". If I don't, I stay ready. He's quickly going to become indispensable to his new team. "I think he gives us a good chance to win, I think me playing gives us a good chance to win. I just wanted my family to be here to see it", Thomas said Wednesday (via the AP), after he watched his Cleveland Cavaliers lose in Boston, 102-88.

Bayless, who rarely misses an opportunity to question James' legacy, argued on Undisputed Wednesday that Thomas' presence in the lineup will hurt James' quest to accumulate huge stat lines, thereby keeping James from catching the ghost of Michael Jordan. But the 5-foot-9 playmaker, who inspired the Celtics and an entire city past year by playing in the immediate aftermath of his sister's death, patiently stuck with his rehab.
