Cleveland Cavaliers C Tristan Thompson could start Game 2 vs. Boston Celtics

Analysis Cavs still have issues to work through and it starts with their reserves

"And we had played well with that lineup and it got us to this point so, yes, we have to weigh that decision".

Lue said the Cavaliers weighed installing Tristan Thompson to combat Horford and help slow the Celtics' interior scoring.

"Usually when Bron has these kind of games, the next game he does something legendary", said Thompson.

"Looking at the statistics, over the last three years with at least 30 [defensive] possessions, out of all the guys that have guarded Al Horford, Tristan is number one in the league defending [him]", Lue said.

"I think in the first half we were a little soft", Love said Monday, according ton ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

We need a fast and just transition for the poorest and most impacted by climate change and the fossil fuel economy. Barber also led a variation on the chant: "What do we want?" "We come not with a left agenda or a right agenda".

Cavaliers head coach Ty Lue is not going to waste a second trying to get his team back on track. While Lue heavily suggested Thompson will start Game 2, he better hope his Game 1 gaffe doesn't come back to bite the team.

With Thompson's focus coming on limiting the damage that Celtics leader Al Horford can inflict on the Cavaliers.

"I think any time you're playing Cleveland, first and foremost, it's about LeBron [James] and then about the shooters and players around him", Stevens offered Monday. We weren't able to get there. "That's a good thing to know". "We didn't play well with that lineup that got us to this point". "The more effective we are, the more it opens up for him". The 6-foot-9 Thompson, who is in the fourth year of the five-year, $82 million extension he signed in 2015, contributed 14 points and 12 rebounds off the bench in the Cavaliers' nail-biting Game 1 win over the Raptors before being relegated to the end of the bench for the next three games, playing no more than 15 minutes in each. He's always responded big and I imagine it will be a lot like Game 2 against Indiana. "But the next game, we can't count on that". Game 2 is not going to be a blowout.

"We just need him to be aggressive, especially when they're switching, putting smaller guys on him or switching and putting the 5 on him", Lue said. "[Sunday] night, we weren't in sync offensively and it kind of carried over to our defense".
