Related Topics: Jumbotron

BOSTON -- Isaiah Thomas received a standing ovation from fans inside TD Garden when he was shown on the JumboTron before the start of the second quarter during Wednesday's tilt between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Thomas, dealt to Cleveland in late August with Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 unprotected first-round pick and the Miami Heat's 2020 second-round pick in exchange for Kyrie Irving, pounded his chest and waved to the crowd from in front of the Cavaliers' bench.

At Thomas' request, the Celtics did not show a prepared tribute video for Thomas, who sat out the second night of a back-to-back after making his season debut in Cleveland's win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night.
