Isaiah Thomas: Battling rust but feeling 'a lot better'

Cleveland's Isaiah Thomas has been fined $20,000 for his clothesline of Andrew Wiggins, the league announced Wednesday.

The Cavaliers are 2-1 with Thomas in the lineup, as the 28-year-old made his return on January 2nd against the Portland Trail Blazers and has tallied two solid outings in the games Cleveland won. There's going to be times where it looks awesome, there's going to be times where you're going to see some rust. "Coach [Tyronn Lue] and the guys put me in a position to be successful, so I just tried to make plays". Despite spending the last seven months rehabbing a torn labrum in his right hip, Thomas scored 19 points, giving him 36 in the two victories.

"I love free throws", Thomas said. "He's like, 'I got traded.' I'm like, 'No way, you're joking, right?' The year he just had, there's no way". "One thing about this team, we have a short memory and we always move on to the next one and we figure things out and adjust".

GM just introduced a self-driving auto without a steering wheel
If NHTSA gives the approval, General Motors Co . will still require permission from states to run the cars without steering wheel. For example, new cars must have an airbag in the steering wheel - but in this vehicle there will be no steering wheel.

Thomas said the duo has turned heads playing together at L.A. Fitness and at Rainier Beach High. There is no denying the incredible offensive impact that a player like Isaiah Thomas can bring to a team. I know that when they're short I have no feel. "I wanted to go somewhere where they can kind of build up".

The only game they've scored more without him was November 3 at Washington, when they totaled 130 as James tied the franchise record with 57 points. This time, Lue didn't need to point out the problem, Thomas said. "We've got to play harder on both ends; we've got to push the pace offensively; we've got to pressure up defensively and take teams out of what they want to do. It's definitely more of an effort thing because we've done it this season, we've shown we can be a pretty good defensive team", he said. In fact, Cleveland made just 13 of their 38 attempts from three-point territory (34.2%). "I'm slowly. the only time I can get my rhythm or try to get it is during games, we don't practice".
