Timofey Mozgov could miss two weeks with shoulder injury, creating opportunity for Anderson Varejao to return to Cavs rotation

CLEVELAND: It was a little more than a year ago at this time when David Blatt insisted there wasn’t much separation between Tristan Thompson and Anderson Varejao. They had similar skill sets, they competed for the starting center job throughout the preseason and they were core pieces on one of the league’s best teams.One year later, all of that has changed. Thompson on Thursday reached the rare feat of 300 consecutive games played, while Varejao reached the rare feat of playing in a game.This isn’t the way Varejao expected his comeback season to go, but it’s the position he’s been...

Are the Cavs protecting the rim? Timofey Mozgov and Tristan Thompson are getting it done

Taking a look at the Cavs' last line of defense When the Cavaliers entered training camp last season with Kevin Love, Anderson Varejao, and Tristan Thompson as the primary bigs they would be utilizing, it was clear that protecting the rim would be a major issue. There was hope that Thompson could develop from being among the league's worst to something approaching average. There was hope that Varejao could contribute defense in a variety of ways that didn't involve rim protection. There was hope Kevin Love would be something other than a minus defensively. The results ranged from mixed...

Knicks’ Amundson understands disses — just not from Tristan Thompson

No matter the apology, Knicks backup center Lou Amundson was disappointed in his former Cavaliers teammate Tristan Thompson for his diss at the Knicks journeyman. Amundson played with Thompson last season before the January fire-sale trade that sent Amundson to New York in the three-team deal that sent J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert to Cleveland....

How the NBA has caught on to Jerian Grant

Jerian Grant dropped in the draft because of his shaky jumper, and he’s seeing his scoring plummet now for the same reason. The Knicks’ rookie point guard went 0-for-5 shooting Friday against Cleveland, and is 8-of-32 in his past six games. “It’s just called welcome to the NBA. People watch us play, the same way...

For the first time in a long time, the Knicks actually are learning

A year ago at this time when Derek Fisher would talk about “laying a foundation for the future,” it was hard to take him seriously, knowing the roster soon would be blown to bits, leaving only a few players worthy of returning. By the time J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Amar’e Stoudemire were shipped out, it...

Carmelo Anthony at center of Knicks’ endgame meltdown problem

While the Knicks have been more competitive than many expected, their fourth-quarter failings have been worse than anybody could have imagined, as bad as any team in the NBA. Coming off back-to-back late-game collapses and some of the worst clutch play in the league, if the Knicks have nightmares, they must be of endgame meltdowns....

Bruisers Matthew Dellavedova, Tristan Thompson forming early chemistry for Cavs

CLEVELAND: Perhaps it’s no coincidence Matthew Dellavedova and Tristan Thompson have formed a bit of chemistry this season. After all, they take the court with essentially the same mindset.They’re both brawlers — Thompson has the scars on his eyes and Dellavedova has the reputation to prove it. Thompson received three stitches on his right eyelid recently to close a wound. He also needed stitches on his left eyelid once from a basketball-related injury.“It’s part of being a big,” he said. “If you’re a big man and you don’t get no wounds, don’t get no cuts, you’re not...

Mo Williams and Tristan Thompson step up as Cavs beat Knicks

On Wednesday night, Mo Williams and Tristan Thompson were difference makers The Cavaliers gave up 32 first quarter points, again. They fell behind big, again. Just as they had come out of the gates struggling against the Philadelphia 76ers, it was an uncomfortable struggle early on. This time it even took a bit more time to get the offensive game going. 48 minutes is a long time for two teams to play basketball against one another, though, and over time the better team asserted itself. Big factors in that turnaround: Mo Williams and Tristan Thompson. At halftime the Cavs were shooting 36%...

Cavaliers’ Tristan Thompson playing his way back into shape after contract dispute

CLEVELAND: Tristan Thompson was lying in wait for someone, anyone, on the Miami Heat and Chris Bosh proved to be his unsuspecting victim.In the fourth quarter of the Cavaliers’ 102-92 victory in Friday’s home opener at Quicken Loans Arena, the Cavs’ sixth man was incensed that the Heat’s Dwyane Wade had just “crammed it” on him. Thompson said he was determined to get even and didn't care who would pay.So when Bosh took a pass from Goran Dragic and drove the lane for what looked to be a left-handed slam, Thompson launched and blocked the shot with his right hand. The post-play...
