Tristan Thompson scored 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-5 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes off the bench during Saturday's win over the Nets.
Timofey Mozgov is back in the starting lineup but played only 17 minutes while he tries to get back up to speed from a shoulder injury, leaving plenty of court time for Thompson. The fifth-year big is capable of averaging a near double-double even off the bench, but if Mozgov continues to struggle with injuries, Thompson's value gets a definite boost.
Tristan Thompson notched nine points (3-4 FG, 3-4 FT), 14 rebounds, and one assist over 34 minutes in Monday's win over the Magic.
The four shots are a paltry total given how many minutes Thompson played, but given his lack of natural feel on the offensive side of the ball, it's probably in the Cavs' best interest that he limits his involvement mostly to high-percentage put-backs and alley-oops. Instead, Thompson is most valued for his ability to clear the glass, which he does better than just about anyone in the league on a per-minute basis. Now that he's getting sizable swaths of playing time as a starter in place of the injured Timofey Mozgov (shoulder), Thompson should routinely haul in 10-plus boards per game. He's already collected 30 rebounds over his first two starts.
Tristan Thompson scored nine points (4-9 FG, 1-2 FT) with 16 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 40 minutes during Saturday's win over the Hawks.
He was one point shy of his second consecutive double-double in his first start of the year, as Thompson got the nod in place of the injured Timofey Mozgov (shoulder). Mozgov could be out for a couple of weeks, so Thompson becomes a great short-term play if you need help in boards, but his offensive contributions will likely be inconsistent.
Tristan Thompson grabbed a season-low four rebounds to go with six points (3-4 FG) in 26 minutes in the double-overtime loss to the Bucks on Saturday.
Despite the length of the game, Thompson played his usual complement of minutes, but the missed shots simply did not come his way. He should bounce back Tuesday against the Pistons.
Tristan Thompson had 16 points (7-8 FG, 2-4 FT) with eight rebounds in 30 minutes in the win over the Pacers on Sunday.
Thompson has averaged an even 10.0 points and 10.0 rebounds with a field goal percentage of 71 in the last five games. He was able to take advantage of his three offensive rebounds against the Pacers. The rebounds will be consistent, but the points will not.
