Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson demoralizes Hawks on offensive glass, as usual

CLEVELAND: On Sunday, Cavaliers veteran Richard Jefferson said the Atlanta Hawks had two Tristan Thompsons. For the rest of the Eastern Conference semifinal series, Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer will hope that is the case. In Game 1 Monday night, Thompson's domination on the offensive boards helped demoralize the Hawks late in the fourth quarter as the Cavs pulled out a 104-93 victory at Quicken Loans Arena. The Cavs center finished with a game-high 14 rebounds, seven offensive, as the Cavs blew an 18-point third-quarter lead but rallied after the Hawks went ahead by one in the fourth...

Watch: LeBron James hits Tristan Thompson with slick no-look pass

LeBron made a simple, yet, pass to set up a Tristan Thompson dunk. LeBron James is a great passer, maybe one of the best in the NBA. This no-look assist to Tristan Thompson is just an other example why. Really, the best part of this pass is how simple it is. LeBron clearly sees Andre Drummond staring him down and Thompson continues rolling to the rim as a result. James recognized by just looking at Drummond and made the Pistons pay. That's great passing.

In what may be his final year of eligibility now that he has earned the starting role with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Tristan Thompson came up well short in the voting for Sixth Man of the Year. Jamal Crawford received the award for the third time of his career. Thompson trailed Andre Igoudala, Enes Kanter, Will Barton, Evan Turner, Ryan Anderson, Jeremy Lin, Ed Davis and Dennis Schroeder, receiving just two first place votes. There were a few factors working against Thompson, as this is an award that is traditionally given to a top bench scorer with little regard for actual impact on the...

Tristan Thompson denies Paul Millsap at the rim

Watch Tristan Thomson swat away Paul Millsap at the rim. Tristan Thompson will not be on your highlight reel, Paul Millsap. Tristan Thompson holds down the paint on @NBATV! #NBARapidReplay #ATLatCLE https://t.co/5bKwEepUAw — NBA (@NBA) April 12, 2016 What Thompson did here is really great. Millsap rises here in space and he looks like he has a dunk. But then Thompson meets him at the top of the rim and rejects him. And when Millsap gets another shot attempt up, Thompson is there to contest that too. Really excellent play here from Tristan.

Why Tristan Thompson should be the sixth man of the year

The last time the sixth man of the year award was given to someone who scored less than ten points per game, Michael Jordan was busy batting .202 for a double A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox. I'll explain why that streak should end this year. 8.0 points per game, 9.1 rebounds, 0.7 assists, 0.4 steals, 0.6 blocks, 0.8 turnovers. That stat line might cause you to yawn and move on past Tristan Thompson as a sixth man of the year candidate. It would also be a mistake. First of all, whom are you passing him over for? a) Will Barton - 14.5 points on 53.8 percent true shooting, 5.9 rebounds,...
