Isaiah Thomas finds love at Emerson College - will face Terry Rozier tonight

A series of interesting tweets prior to Isaiah Thomas' Nuggets dual with Boston tonight apparently ended with Isaiah getting some love last night at Emerson College - while also choosing not to face Terry Rozier 1-on-1 until tonight's contest. It is very apparent that Isiah loves Boston and its fans as much as they love him.

It started with Isaiah looking for a good run at a local Boston gym. Instead, he got an invitation from Terry Rozier for some one-on-one action a the Celtics practice gym. But IT saw a better option from Emerson College.

So Isaiah played some pickup ball at Emerson, and a number of guys got the chance to play with (and against) IT, accompanied by a round of photos. The good will he spread around went a long way

Unless I missed something, the IT/T-Ro 1-on-1 dual never took place, and we will look for it tonight when Denver takes on the Celtics. Despite being taken out of Denver's regular rotation, it would be a travesty if IT never got back on the parquet for this game. Expect a loud verbal demand from the fans in attendance for some IT floor time. The crowd's love should be quite evident.
