Kyrie Irving expects Celtics fans to praise Isaiah Thomas in Boston return

Isaiah Thomas wants to make season'something special
		Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

In his 76 games played for the Celtics during their 2016-17 campaign, Thomas turned in averages of 28.9 points on.463 shooting from the field (both career-highs), 5.9 assists, and 2.7 rebounds in 33.8 minutes per game - all while sinking.909 percent of his free-throws.

Thomas has been rehabilitating a nagging hip injury suffered in last year's Eastern Conference Finals and has been anxious to make his return.

Though the Cavs' next game after Tuesday is in Boston on Wednesday - which will be Thomas' first trip to TD Garden since he was traded - he will not face his old team.

"I know it will be all love", Thomas told ESPN of his Boston return. They know what they gave up.it's all good. I think we play them in February again, so I can wait and put on a show then. However, Thomas is nearing a return to the court to the point where there is now an official projection of when he will suit up for the first time.

In any case, there are all kinds of things to get excited about over this past year, that has brought them to this point right now.

That won't happen tomorrow night when the Cleveland Cavaliers visit. "But I can wait until February".

Thomas is recovering from a torn labrum and other stress injuries related to his right hip. "Be you, be aggressive and look to score, ' so that always makes you feel comfortable that they want me to be who I am, and that's all I can be". "It's been a long process for me". "I was always one that just wanted to be the best I possibly could". The Cavaliers have been winning, and keeping pace at the top of the Eastern Conference, with a hotchpotch of veterans playing the point including Jose Calderon, Derrick Rose and the veteran Dwyane Wade, who is much more of a shooting guard anyway. "A lot of guys stepped up tonight and were ready to play".
