Isaiah Thomas scored 17 points in 19 minutes in his Cleveland Cavs debut last night. The Cavs beat Portland 127-110.

It was his first game action in more than seven months.

Thomas is on a minutes restriction and will not play in back-to-back games. That means he will not play tonight against the Celtics.

He check into the game late in the first quarter and received a big ovation from the Cleveland crowd.

Thomas took a spill and hit the floor for the first time in his second possession. He missed his first two shots before draining a jumper.

NOTE: Thomas has requested to the Boston Celtics that they not show a video highlight tape during the game tonight. He says he wants to be able to be playing when that happens. The C's will honor his request. Live coverage of the Celtics vs Cavs tonight on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket starting at 7:30pm.
