Bazemore filled the stat sheet with 16 points (6-14 FG, 1-2 FT, 3-10 3Pt), 14 rebounds, four assists and to steals in 36 minutes during Monday's series-opener versus the Cavs.

The swingman played well versus Boston in the first round, but he took his game to a new level Monday, notching his first double-double of the postseason. Bazemore should receive all the minutes he can handle in this series as a primary defensive option versus LeBron James, and he is more than capable of producing across the board in expanded playing time.
