LOS ANGELES: LeBron James dropped in 24 points and two-time all-star Isaiah Thomas made his Cleveland debut as the Cavaliers defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 127-110 on Tuesday night. Thomas tallied 17 points in 19 minutes of play as he embarks on a soft return to NBA action following injuries to his hip and shoulder. Thomas’ last game was May 19, game two of the Eastern Conference finals against the Cavs. Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said earlier that Thomas would play restricted minutes on Tuesday. Even though the Cavaliers’ next game is against the Celtics, Thomas already said he isn’t keen on facing his old teammates just yet.
