Celtics coach Brad Stevens set his DVR to record Nuggets game so he can watch Isaiah Thomas’ season debut
Stevens won’t be able to watch the Nuggets game live because he has his own game to coach, as the Celtics are taking on the Detroit Pistons at home.
However, Stevens told local reporters in Boston he set his DVR to record the Nuggets’ game so he can watch Thomas’ debut when he gets home.
Brad Stevens said he set his DVR to record the Nuggets game tonight. He can’t wait to watch Isaiah Thomas’s season debut.

Isaiah Thomas underwent arthroscopic hip surgery in March of 2018. He had an MVP-type season for the Celtics in 2016-17, but then hurt his hip badly during the 2017 playoffs and hasn’t been the same player since.
Thomas is still loved by the fans in Boston and Stevens still holds a special place for the scoring guard in his heart as well. The two-time All-Star lost his sister in a tragic car accident in 2017 and still played for the Celtics in the playoffs.
This is a pretty cool gesture by Brad Stevens.
Just because Thomas isn’t on the Celtics anymore, doesn’t mean people in Boston aren’t paying attention to him from afar.
