Best 2014-15 Playoff Debuts
The 2014-15 NBA Playoffs have begun, and we’ve now finished all Game 1’s in an entertaining weekend that saw seven of eight teams win their home games. There were also some stunning debuts as some of league’s rising stars played in their first playoff games. We take a look at the top five playoff debuts from this weekend, starting with number 5:
5. Isaiah Thomas, PG, Boston Celtics
Game 1 @ Cleveland Cavaliers: 22 points, 6-14 FG, 2-5 3PT, 8-8 FT, 5 rebounds, 10 assists
The 60th pick in the 2011 Draft (the one where Kyrie Irving went number one overall) had a great playoff debut Sunday against the Cavs. Even more impressive was the fact that he came up big off the bench, continuing to provide an all-around spark for the Celtics as a reserve. Almost everyone is betting against the Celtics in this series, but this series will likely be Thomas’ coming out party as a top-notch scorer in the NBA.
