Cavaliers F Tristan Thompson adapting to role off the bench
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/4/15) With the mid-season addition of Timofey Mozgov, Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson is adapting to his role off the bench, working behind Mozgov and Kevin Love, respectively, according to the The News-Herald and The Morning Journal.
"I'm bringing the energy," Thompson said, who will be a restricted free agent next season. "That's my role on this team. That leads to getting extra possessions on the court. Defensively, just taking on the challenge of guarding the other team's best big and giving Timo and Kevin a breather."
The 23-year-old is averaging 9.0 points and 8.4 boards per game, and is shooting a career-best 52.1 percent from the floor this season. During Cleveland's 11-game winning streak, Thompson has grabbed eight-plus rebounds in nine of 11 games.
"He's doing a great job," coach David Blatt said. "He's defending post players, rebounding and finishing when we ask him to. Sometimes he plays in tandem with Kevin and Timo.
"He's been very solid throughout the year. We're getting that maximum effort every time he steps on the floor. It's a big part of what he brings to the table and what we need from him."

|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/25/15) Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson scored 10 points on 3 of 4 shooting and grabbed a game-high 16 rebounds in Cleveland's 108-98 win over the Thunder Sunday. Coming off the bench, it was Thompson's season-high for rebounds in a game. It was also his 11th double-double of the season.
Thompson blocked three shots on the evening.
Cavaliers PF Tristan Thompson doubles up vs. Clippers
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/17/15) Cavaliers power forward Tristan Thompson scored 24 points on 10 of 12 shooting while hauling in 12 rebounds in his team's 126-121 win over the Clippers Friday.
Thompson was one of three Cleveland players to play 40 minutes in the win (LeBron James, Kyrie Irving), and all three delivered sparkling performances. The power forward notched his second straight double-double while kicking in two blocks. He'll square off with the Bulls Monday.
|Much was made last offseason about Tristan Thompson's decision to change his primary shooting hand, but it ended up making no difference in his production on the court. Thompson stalled out in his third season in the league, averaging 11.7 points and 9.2 rebounds per game, nearly identical marks from his previous season. He could find life a bit easier with LeBron James around to set him up for easy shots, but he could naturally see a smaller role in the offense. Thompson should be considered a mid-round Fantasy option in nearly all leagues on Draft Day.
