Making his return against Blazers, and already planning to sit out against Celtics? Ask yourself, how does that even make sense?
*HIP = 33; Oregon, the 33rd State: Cleveland = 33; Massachusetts = 33
The Blazers and Cavs have played 36-games each, and this will be their 37th.
Portland = 37
This game comes 36-days before Thomas's birthday, or a span of 37-days.
Consider Portland is the closest NBA city to where his sister died, and where he grew up.
Recall his sister's death April 15, 2017:
Recall him scoring 53 on what would have been his sister's birthday, May 2, 2017:
If the Cavs win tonight, it will be their 53rd win all-time.
Point Guard = 53
Recall his injury against the Cavs May 19, 2017:
Thomas's return comes 228-days after his May 19 injury, or a span of 229-days.
Most importantly, this move comes on the 78th day of the NBA Season, which began Oct. 17.
Celtics lost with 86 the game he was hurt.
This also comes a span of 21-weeks and 3-days before the NBA Finals.
