The Los Angeles Lakers picked up a 127-113 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers last night and Isaiah Thomas had exactly the kind game that a player hopes to have against a team that recently traded him away. However, the Lakers' point guard said it wasn't a "revenge game."
After the victory, in which Thomas scored 20 points, dished out nine assists and grabbed five rebounds, he told reporters the following.
Despite rumors that Thomas has "no love" for Cavs All-Star LeBron James, there were no signs bad blood before, during or after the game. Thomas embraced with several his former teammates, including LeBron, prior to tip-f.
With last night's win, the Lakers improved to 30-36 on the season but are still a long shot to make the playfs sitting 6.5 games back the eighth seed. The Cavaliers, on the other hand, dropped to fourth in the Eastern Conference, just a half game back the Indiana Pacers.
