Isaiah Thomas misses playing in Boston

Boston Celtics backup point guard Isaiah Thomas was the driving catalyst for that team's surprising playoff appearance last season. 

In fact, the 26-year-old had such an incredible experience that he recently tweeted his longing desire to get back on the court, in front of diehard Celtic loyalists.

Funny enough, after getting traded to Boston from the Phoenix Suns, Thomas was actually more productive on the road, averaging 3.9 more points per game with better efficiency.

But the sample size is small, and there's a good chance Thomas shines at TD Garden in 2016.
