Isaiah Thomas to Make Season Debut Tomorrow Night vs. Blazers

  • Isaiah Thomas will not play against Celtics on Wednesday

Monday's practice was the final tune-up, the last step in his grueling grind."I never took the game for granted", Thomas said.

Isaiah Thomas will make a debut for the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night that has been far too long in its gestation.

Despite the injury to Thomas, the Cavaliers (24-11) own the third best record in the Eastern Conference and are odds-on favourites to return to the NBA Finals for a fourth consecutive year.

Thomas, 28, but said he would not want to jump back into it unless he could average 30 points a night. He was traded to Cleveland over the summer in a blockbuster that brought guard Kyrie Irving to Boston.

$343 million, $440 million jackpots tempt lottery players
The lump-sum cash options are now $278.3 million for Powerball and $215 for Mega Millions . Just behind that is the $648 million jackpot split by two winners on December 17, 2013.

The Cavaliers have the second-worst defense in the National Basketball Association this season and even a fully fit, up-to-speed Thomas isn't going to help that statistic. It's been a frustrating and tough process but at the same time you got to trust it. He can't get frustrated thinking it's going to happen overnight.

The Cavs are now on a three-game losing streak, so Thomas' return could not have come at a better time. He played hurt through the first two rounds of the playoffs, then was furious that Boston traded him.

On New Year's Day, it was announced that Thomas will be available when the Cavs face the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday. Still, the stated reason is that Thomas will avoid back-to-backs and, for good measure, he will be on a minutes restriction.

The Cavs return to Boston again February 11. "I can wait until February".

Raiders fire Jack Del Rio
It feels like it's only a matter of time before Gruden is named as Del Rio's successor with the Silver and Black. He owns a 100-85 career record and won a Super Bowl in the 2002 season with the Buccaneers over the Raiders.

"I haven't even really put on the jersey, so to continue to get that type of love when I haven't really given the city anything but some workouts on my own, I'm just ready to put the grind forward and give the fans what they want to see, and make this season something special".

The team will honor Thomas some other time, Megliola said. This ain't no revenge game. But they've got to be patient and stay the course. He tried to force the Cavs to play him last week in Sacramento and was denied. After six months away from the game, he's still searching for his feel for the game.

The Blazers also are likely getting back their All-Star point guard, Damian Lillard, who missed the past five games with a right hamstring strain. "The NBA didn't do us any favors".

Guardiola expects up to two months out for Jesus
In Wenger's record 811th game in charge, James McClean deflected in Alexis Sanchez's 83rd-minute free kick to put Arsenal ahead. We know how strong physically it is England but teams miss big players, not just Manchester City.
