My *actual* favorite part of the Tristan Thompson piece is that Dion Waiters is the presented authority on who is an irreplaceable Cavalier.

Chris Haynes

Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters have combined for 40 of the #Cavs 53 points. They'll eventually need assistance.

I sense Hubie Brown is not a huge Dion Waiters fan.

Paul Flannery

"See, Waiters is trying to score the basketball." Grumpy uncle Hubie getting right to the point.

Jason Lloyd

#Cavs have tried Irving, Waiters and Delly on Rose. 0 for 3. It'll be LeBron's turn when games matter

Chris Haynes

Dion Waiters is subbed out and Matthew Dellavedova takes his turn on Derrick Rose. Rose went right at him for the layup.

Chris Haynes

Like this adjustment by Blatt. Got Dion Waiters on Derrick Rose. Say what you want about his shot selection, his defense has been on point!

David Blatt on Dion Waiters leading the Cavs in shot attempts every game: "I don't think he should lead us in shots."

Dave McMenamin

As @Jason Lloyd pointed out, Dion Waiters has led the Cavs in shots all five preseason games so far.

Jason Lloyd

Final: Mavs 108, #Cavs 102. Irving 23p,5a; Thompson 17p,11r; LBJ 12p,4a; Waiters 14p. DAL Parsons 19p. CLE 46%, 22TO; DAL 46%, 11TO

Earl K. Sneed

Waiters is now 4-of-9 from three, but just 4-of-15 from the field. @Dallas Mavericks' lead is just 88-85 with 9:32 left to play. #DALatCLE

Mark Followill

Kyrie Irving leads Cleveland with 16 points, Dion Waiters had 9 of Cleveland's 29 2nd qtr points

Jason Lloyd

Half: Mavs 56, #Cavs 55. Irving 16p,3a; Thompson 14p,8r; LBJ 1p,4a; Waiters 11p. DAL Nowitzki 11p,6r. CLE 44%, 11TO; DAL 46%, 6 TO

Jason Lloyd

Waiters, incidentally, has led team in shots attempted in every game thus far and has a team-leading 10 more tonight. Conversely, LBJ has 2

Jason Lloyd

Not sure if I missed it last year or Waiters really worked on it over summer, but he's really grasping rule of verticality this preseason

David Thorpe

If Blatt can get Waiters up to his potential, he has a lot of Ben Gordon in him. I mean the BG that no one could guard. And the deadeye shot

Earl K. Sneed

Cavs roll with the 1st unit of LeBron, Thompson, Varejao, Waiters and Irving. #DALatCLE
