ORLANDO – The Cavs are back in action tonight but the big story is Isaiah Thomas. The Cavs guard will be back in the line-up and he will start tonight against the Orlando Magic.

Thomas made his Cavs debut on Tuesday night against the Portland Trailblazers and he did not disappoint, scoring 17 points in 19 minutes.

He sat out Wednesday’s game in Boston for rest, as it was part of a back-to-back.

Thomas said he was playing at about 80 percent based on his physical conditioning.

His body was a little sore following the game but he’s ready to go Saturday and excited to get his first start with the Wine and Gold.
