Cutting through the noise surrounding Tristan Thompson’s recent play

The Cavs have been better lately when Tristan Thompson sits. Is there cause for concern or is it just noise? Is there something wrong with Tristan Thompson? This is the question that has been bothering me since the beginning of February. For what it’s worth, the Cavs are 14-5 when LeBron plays over that stretch. In addition to the tooth/lip injury Thompson suffered Sunday night, the numbers suggest the Cavs are struggling when he is on the court. Thompson, who typically ranks near the top of the team in terms of On/Off rating differential, ranks last on the Cavs since Feb....

Braces just another badge of courage for Cavaliers’ iron man Tristan Thompson

LOS ANGELES: Tristan Thompson didn’t want to open his mouth at first, at least not in front of the television cameras.But as the Cavaliers center discussed the Julius Randle elbow he took to his two front teeth in Sunday night’s 125-120 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center, he started to come around. After a few minutes, the “throwback braces” he could be forced to wear for two weeks might have seemed like another badge of courage for the team’s iron man.So Thompson finally showed his “metal,” smiling as he did.What was required to fix Thompson’s teeth is not...

Cavs 125, Lakers 120: Marla's 33 shots from Beyond the Arc on Tristan's teeth, putting on a show

Notes, quotes and observations from the Cavaliers’ 125-120 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers Sunday night at Staples Center. 1. Before I get to Tristan Thompson’s apparently gruesome issue with his two front teeth, some pointed post-game criticism from Cavs coach Tyronn Lue. 2. Lue knew the Lakers have the second-worst record in the league and have shut down ex-Cavs Timofey Mozgov and Luol Deng for the rest of the season to develop their young players. But Lue still expected the Lakers to take the game seriously and come to play. And he knew the Cavaliers would not. 3. “We...

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Detroit Pistons: Start time, tv info, and preview

The Cavs look to bounce back in a few different ways On Sunday night the Cleveland Cavaliers got beat up on the glass in a tough road loss to the Houston Rockets. The Rockets spread the floor with the best of them, and the Cavs opted to switch Tristan Thompson onto Rockets guards throughout the game. There were a few different, and bad, outcomes. One, Thompson couldn’t control Harden or really anyone. Hopefully he isn’t hurt, but in his first full season of starting at center, it wouldn’t be surprising if he was a bit beat up, particularly with Kevin Love missing so much time. It also...

James Harden’s triple double pushes Rockets past Cavs late

The MVBeard lived up to his billing in leading Houston over Cleveland at the Toyota Center. James Harden racked up 38 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists, and the Rockets used a big third quarter to rebound from a less-than-stellar first half and defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 117-112. The Beard shot just 4-14 from beyond the arc, but he got to the bucket basically at will and was routinely abusing Tristan Thompson all night on switches, including this absolute beauty in the closing minutes of the fourth to give the Rockets a two-score lead they would not relinquish. #BEARDING #Rockets 111...
