Clippers 113, Cavaliers 94: Complacency kills Cavs in blowout home loss to Clippers

CLEVELAND: The complacency Tyronn Lue railed against this week apparently wasn’t cured with one embarrassing road loss or one public example made out of J.R. Smith’s antics.Identifying the problem and fixing it are two different issues. Two blowouts in three nights proves the Cavaliers still have work to do.LeBron James scored 16 points, but the Cavs were drilled at home Thursday by the Los Angeles Clippers 113-94 on a night their shooting and defense again failed them.A jumper by Tristan Thompson pulled the Cavs within 47-45 with two minutes left in the first half, but the Clippers...

Tristan Thompson doing a better job of protecting the rim, blocking shots for Cavaliers

INDEPENDENCE: After the Cavaliers let Timofey Mozgov walk in free agency, one of the biggest concerns was finding another rim protector. It’s what has made Tristan Thompson’s emergence this season such a pleasant surprise.Part of the reason the Cavs pursued Mozgov two years ago was their lack of rim protection. Now in his sixth year, Thompson might be evolving into a shot blocker.It’s still too early to draw any definitive conclusions, but Thompson’s 1.8 blocks per game this season are more than double his career average (0.8). He is tied with Dwight Howard for eighth in the league in...

From tanking to a title: Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson are evolving - and leading

Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson have seen it all, and they’ve seen it together With just under six minutes to play in an early measuring stick game against Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Hornets, Channing Frye hits a three-pointer off an assist from LeBron James. After being down by a point heading into the fourth quarter, the three gives the Cleveland Cavaliers a nine point lead. Coming out of a Hornets time out, Kyrie Irving stays right where he’s been all quarter: on the bench. Irving is nothing if not full of pride and self-assuredness. Given what he’s accomplished at such a...

Final score: LeBron James wakes up to lead fourth quarter bench unit over Hornets

This one wasn’t always pretty, but the Cavs beat a good Hornets team at home Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, and Tristan Thompson didn’t spend very much time sitting down in the fourth quarter, but it was for the best possible reason: they had a lot to cheer about as a quirky bench unit led by LeBron James played for the entire period and delivered a big home victory over one of the East’s best teams. The Cavs entered the fourth quarter facing a one-point deficit, and LeBron James had been having a rough go of it. With 12 minutes remaining, James was 4-15 from the field with three assists...

With Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue experimenting with lineups, Tristan Thompson playing fewer fourth-quarter minutes

WASHINGTON: As Tyronn Lue continues to experiment with his lineups and reserves packages, one of his recent trends has been using Tristan Thompson less and less in fourth quarters. Thompson has played sparingly in fourth quarters through much of this early season and his playing time has gradually decreased in the past four games, to the point where he didn’t play at all in the fourth quarter of Friday’s win at the Washington Wizards. Lue still believes Thompson is his best interior defender, he’s just tinkering for now and examining what happens when he puts more shooting on the floor....
