Return of Isaiah Thomas
The Cavs offense struggled mightily in their Christmas Day matchup. The team finished the game shooting an abysmal 31.8% from the field. Their best scoring came from their free throw shooting, where they went 21-25. The addition of Isaiah Thomas, who averaged almost 30 points a game last year, should bolster their offense.
The Warriors did an excellent job defensively of keying on LeBron and limiting him on the offensive end. Isaiah will take over the Cavs primary ball-handling duties when he’s healthy. So, if the Warriors focus on shutting down LeBron’s driving like they did before, it should open the floor up for IT to go to work.
