Cavaliers C Timofey Mozgov doubles up vs. Bulls Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2015) Cavaliers center Timofey Mozgov scored 13 points on 5 of 6 shooting while hauling in 11 rebounds in his team's 113-98 loss to the Bulls Thursday.

Mozgov was hit with foul trouble early in the second half, and after receiving his fourth foul soon after play resumed following halftime, he was hit with a technical foul on his way to the bench. He still managed to put together his first double-double in the last eight games, blocking one shot in the loss and scoring in double digits for the fifth time in six February games. Mozgov has a matchup with the Wizards on tap coming out of the All-Star break.


Cavaliers' Timofey Mozgov scores 12 in rout of Clippers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) Cavaliers C Timofey Mozgov scored 12 points and grabbed nine rebounds, matching Kevin Love for the game high, in a 105-94 win over the Clippers, Thursday. 

Mozgov did all of his damage in less than three quarters. He left the game for good with 3:22 left in the third and the Cavs leading by 31. The Clippers rallied in the fourth against the Cavalier bench to cut the lead to a respectable final score. 

Mozgov shot 5-of-7 from the floor and earned four of his rebounds on the offensive glass. 

The Cavaliers play next on Friday at the Pacers. 


LeBron on Mozgov: Best big guy I've played with since Ilgauskas


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) The Cavaliers have won four straight games after beating the Jazz, 106-92, on Wednesday. While everyone is providing their two cents about what is driving the Cavs surge, star forward LeBron James has his own theory as well

James feels the addition of Timofey Mozgov has been a big reason why the Cavs are beginning to play better. Mozgov is averaging 10.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in seven games since his acquisition from Denver.

"It's funny, I was talking to my friend the other day and I said he's probably the best, as far as big, true big," James said, per Cleveland.com. "You know, Chris Bosh is a great big, Kevin Love is a great big. But I'm talking about a true, 7-foot, big guy. He's probably the best one I've played with since Z (Zydrunas Ilgauskas).

"They have different skill sets, but they both have skill. They know how to play. Some times you get a lot of bigs that are just big. He knows how to play and it's great to have him out there."

Mozgov has had double-doubles in back-to-back games.

"He's going to be on the scouting report," James said of Mozgov. "Once you're on the scouting report, you start hitting the opposing team's scouting report then you know you're starting to do some good things. And he's going to be on that. He's a walking double-double."


Cavs' Blatt on recently acquired Mozgov: ''He's a great fit for our team'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Cavaliers center Timofey Mozgov had quite the home debut during Monday's 108-94 win against the Bulls. Mozgov, who was acquired in a Jan. 7 trade with Denver, totaled 15 points and 15 rebounds in his first home game with Cleveland.

He is averaging 9.3 points and 9.0 rebounds in six games since his acquisition.

"I think since he’s came in here, he’s applied himself extremely well," coach Dave Blatt said, per the team's official website. "He’s fit right in and he’s a great fit for our team. The skill set that he has and his activity level is just a great fit for our team. We’ll miss Andy Varejao for a good period of time. We played not a short period of time without our starting center but obviously when Timo (Timofey) came in, he filled a big void and he’s just applied himself extremely well."


Cavs C Timofey Mozgov posts double-double in loss


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

Mozgov, who had nine points and eight rebounds in his Cavs' debut, will visit Phoenix on Tuesday.


Cavaliers' Timofey Mozgov probable after passing physical


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/9/2015) Cavaliers center Timofey Mozgov is probable to play on Friday after passing his physical, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Mozgov was recently acquired by the club, and needed to take a physical in oder to be cleared to play. There were conflicting reports early on Friday, but it appears Mozgov is set, and will take on the Warriors. He's averaging 8.5 points and 7.8 rebounds per game.


Timofey Mozgov not expected to make Cavs' debut on Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/9/2015) Updating a previous item: Newly acquired Cavaliers center Timofey Mozgov has yet to pass a physical and will likely sit out Friday's game at Golden State, per ESPN. A previous report had Mozgov making his debut and starting over Tristan Thompson.

Mozgov was acquired by the Cavaliers from the Nuggets on Wednesday. In 38 games, the big man from Russia averaged 8.5 points and 7.8 rebounds.


Cavs C Timofey Mozgov will be in starting lineup vs. Warriors


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/9/2015) Newly acquired Cavaliers center Timofey Mozgov will make his debut as a starter Friday night against the Warriors, according to Chris Haynes of the Plain Dealer. The move will shift Tristan Thompson to the bench, with both centers likely splitting minutes moving forward.

"I've come off the bench most of the season," Thompson said. "Whatever it takes for us to win. [I'll] come out and join the bench mob again. Bring the energy with myself, Delly [Matthew Dellavedova] and all the other guys so that's a role that I embrace and I'm trying to be the X-factor."

Mozgov was acquired by the Cavaliers from the Nuggets on Wednesday. In 38 games, the big man from Russia averaged 8.5 points and 7.8 rebounds.


What do we do with the new-look Cavaliers' front court?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/7/2015) The Cavaliers got the big man they've been looking for Wednesday, when they moved a pair of first-round picks to the Nuggets in exchange for Timofey Mozgov. What should Fantasy owners think about the Cavalier's frontcourt now?

If anything, this move should be a positive for Kevin Love, who gets to space the floor around a true big man. For Tristan Thompson and Anderson Varejao's gifts, they aren't going to attract the kind of attention near the rim Mozgov will when he's rolling, and he could have a similar impact on Love's outside game that Nikola Pekovic did when the two played together in Minnesota.

The news isn't so great for Thompson, who looked like a really solid Fantasy contributor in the wake of Varejao's season-ending injury. Thompson has been averaging 10.9 points and 10.5 rebounds per game over the last 10, and was seeing even more playing time recently, with 40.4 minutes per game under his belt over the last five. He'll still get plenty of playing time, but I'm not sure he has much value as a 25-minute-per-game player. If that's where things fall, he'll end up as just a low-end Fantasy option, but it is still worth hanging on to him for a few weeks to see how they choose to deploy him.

For his part, Mozgov's value doesn't change much. He probably loses a bit, but it's not like he was a big Fantasy contributor lately anyways. He is an offensively skilled big man and a solid rebounder and shot blocker, but the Cavaliers probably aren't going to rely on him too heavily, so you're probably looking at a reserve big man in most leagues.

The Cavaliers desperately needed a big man, and they got a pretty good one. However, this seems like a move that will make more of an impact in real life than the Fantasy realm.
