Tyronn Lue says Cavaliers will be without Tristan Thompson for two weeks

Tyronn Lue says Cavaliers will be without Tristan Thompson for two weeks

Hood's still not shooting well (4-of-12 Monday) but he scored 13 points.

The 37-year-old Jefferson returned to Cleveland for the first time since being traded in October, and he felt unusual entering the visitor's locker room at Quicken Loans Arena.

As Larry Nance Sr. waited in the hallway following the best game of his son's career, the former All-Star was approached by a young Cavaliers fan.

"It just kind of felt easy", Nance said.

Nance, 25, also grabbed two steals and dished out an assist in 32 minutes off the bench.

He had career highs with 22 points and 15 rebounds in his first start for the Cavs.

"I didn't care if I had zero rebounds", Nance said.

"I don't know, no one knows, people can guess, everyone wants to now throw these shots in the dark", Jefferson said.

As expected, Lue turned to seldom-used rookie Ante Zizic because of all the injuries to the Cavs' bigs, and Zizic fared well.

If Nance continues to shoot the ball well, he could force Lue to make a tough decision when Thompson (and Kevin Love) gets healthy. "That's why he's great".

Thompson's timeline for recovery was previously described by the team as causing him to miss "multiple games".

The US intelligence community concluded previous year that Russia-linked actors interfered in the 2016 US election on specific orders from Putin.

"We needed it", James said about the win. He will now "undergo a period of treatment and rehabilitation" before returning.

Nance, meanwhile, hit a number of midrange jumpers while adding an array of spectacular dunks.

“I didnt know he could shoot it, ” Lue said. "He never shot it in L.A". You need me to just go guard this guy?

The Detroit Pistons are in Cleveland tonight to clash with the Cavaliers.

Blake Griffin led Detroit with 25 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists, but the Pistons dropped their 3rd straight and have now lost 9 of their last 11.

Nance also became the first Cavs player besides James or Love with 20-plus points and 15-plus rebounds since Thompson did it more than four years ago (Feb. 2, 2014), according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Jefferson experienced plenty of drama during his time in Cleveland, part of playing with James. His gravity is ridiculous.

Because of Smith's volatile reputation and shoot-first-ask-questions later playing style, his soup-throwing tantrum led to a social-media storm Friday as Twitter filled with posts about him and his possible soup choice.

Even with Nance making an immediate impact at forward, the Cavs scuffled for another month until they won nine of their last 11 games in the regular-season and make the playoffs with a 42-40 record. Totals 34-87 10-15 90. But we can't dig ourselves holes at the beginning of games either and expect for those guys to come in and bring us back every time.

In Smith's absence, Rodney Hood will start.

Cleveland leads the season series 2-1. Assists-Detroit 17 (I.Smith 6), Cleveland 29 (James 7).
