Isaiah Thomas walked toward his locker before the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Portland Trail Blazers 127-110 on Tuesday, and before he could slip on his jersey ahead of his first game in more than seven months, his teammates caused a commotion to mark the moment.

“I feel like a damn rookie,” Thomas muttered under his breath as he sat down in front of his wine and gold No. 3 uniform. He didn’t play like a rookie, however, as he finished with 17 points on 6-for-12 shooting (3-for-8 from 3) in 19 minutes in his long-awaited Cleveland debut.
