How Tristan Thompson's ability to run the floor impacted Game 6

Tristan Thompson's ability to run the floor and hit the right spots helped take the Cavs' offense up a notch. Tristan Thompson's performance in Game 6 was him at his best. He didn't do anything flashy, but he worked and worked and worked - and then worked some more - to push the Warriors to their brink. With Kevin Love in foul trouble and again a non-factor, Thompson played 43 minutes - the same number as LeBron James - and did everything he needed to do for the Cavs to force a Game 7. As usual, the roles Thompson filled were the ones that aren't glamorous. He stepped out on the Warriors'...

Tristan Thompson helps Cavaliers ‘throw the first punch’ in 116-78 Game 5 victory over Raptors

CLEVELAND: Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson knew he and his teammates needed to bounce back Wednesday night in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The effort and play in Games 3 and 4 were just not up to par for the Cavaliers as the Raptors built leads and won both games in Toronto to even the best of seven series. “The last couple of games we didn’t bring the juice, we didn’t bring the energy,” Thompson said. “They threw the first punch, so tonight T-Lue [Cavs coach Tyronn Lue] told us in the pre-game huddle: ‘Throw the first punch and come out and play really...

Cavaliers notebook: Tristan Thompson angry with his performance against Bismack Biyombo in Games 3 and 4

CLEVELAND: Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson was admittedly ticked off with his play of late.Thompson has been matched up on surging Toronto Raptors center Bismack Biyombo in the NBA Eastern Conference finals.

Although he didn’t provide a sterling effort in the first two games, in the second two, Biyombo was golden, collecting 40 rebounds, including 11 on the offensive end.“Any time in the series, at the end of the day it’s about wins and losses, but at the same time, in the course of...

The Cavaliers need to trust Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson

They're not great right now, but can they be? In the fourth quarter of Game 3 and Game 4, the Cavaliers starting frontcourt played all of just one possession each, about 26 seconds of play. In both games, Tyronn Lue opted for the three-point shooting of Channing Frye and either the perimeter defense of Iman Shumpert or the surprisingly versatile 3-4 hybrid of Richard Jefferson. In the span of those 24 minutes, the Cavaliers were outscored, 22-14, and fell short of a comeback 30-27, with just 2 offensive rebounds on 18 missed attempts. Lue was right to question the ability of Thompson and...
