Isaiah Thomas dazzles in debut, destroys Twitter troll
Isaiah Thomas made his long-awaited return to the court last night, scoring 17 points in 19 minutes as the Cavs downed the Blazers. All in all, it was a great night for Thomas. He received a huge ovation from the Cleveland fans, his son was hilarious in the postgame interview and the Cavs snapped their three-game losing streak. Seems like a happy ending, only it came with some drama earlier in the day. Since Thomas won't be playing tonight against the Celtics as it's the second night of a back-to-back, he asked the Celtics not to play a video tribute for him. Seems like a fair request, except for the one Boston writer had a problem and told IT to "get over yourself." Thomas did not like this comment and quickly told that writer to shut the F up (but in different words).
This guy is really, really good at Tetris
Congrats to Jonas Neubauer, who became the first ever player to score 300,000 points in under two minutes (and he did it by accident). I've watched this twice and I can't believe how good he is.
