Isaiah Thomas ruled out for rest of playoffs with hip injury


James says his only concern is being the Cavaliers' MVP each and every night, and he was just that in their Game 2 win over the Boston Celtics.

The Cavs held an National Basketball Association playoff record 41-point lead at halftime and won their 13th straight playoff game, tying a league record.

The 72-31 lead surpassed the 40-point margin held by the Detroit Pistons over the Washington Bullets on April 26, 1987.

James has scored at least 30 in eight straight games as he looks to visit the NBA Finals for the seventh straight season.

"I think, for IT not to play, he'd have to have one of his legs cut off or something", Green said. Meanwhile, the Cavs are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games following a win of more than 10 points, 7-0-1 ATS in their last eight games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last four Conference Finals games.

With Fultz potentially the team's point guard of the future, the prospect of giving Thomas a max deal at his age is a dilemma most teams would love to have, but it's a dilemma nonetheless. It wasn't fun to watch after halftime, and that may be the biggest takeaway.

His status for Game 3 is unknown. Best of luck to them with that.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said he's seen this kind of "voter fatigue" before, when he played with Shaquille O'Neal on the Lakers. The Cavaliers could finish off the sweep with victories in Cleveland.

Per numberFire Live, Thomas was atrocious last night, with -28.45 nERD in 18 minutes.

All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas aggravated a hip injury in the first half of Friday's game and sat out the second half. In the seven games against the Wizards, he averaged 27.4 points per game, including a 53-point performance in Game 2.

According to McKeon, Thomas has been playing with the FAI for a significant amount of time, dating to March 15, when he first suffered the injury against Minnesota. "People love new cars, they love the new auto smell and Bron has been doing it at a high level and he's been the MVP of every team he has been on for 14 years". "I picked his brain for as long as I could", Stevens said.

His hesitance resulted in him either quickly passing the ball of to teammates for contested shots or putting his head down and getting stuck in the air with no where to go. LeBron is now shooting 62 percent from the field and 42 percent from three for the series. "They swept us off the floor". Their secondary scorers-Avery Bradley and Al Horford-have not been efficient, and the Cavs jumped out in both games and cruised.
