Cavs win 110-99 for 18th W in last 20 games, improve to 37-22. LeBron season-high 42p 11r; Kyrie 24p; Love 16p 8r; Mozgov 10p 10r
Cavs up 90-78 through 3Q. LeBron 38p on 13-for-21 5r 4a; Kyrie 20p; Mozgov 10p 10r; Love 10p; T.Thompson 8p 7r.
Those seem to be MVP chants for Mozgov
GSW at CLE starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; CLE -- Irving, Smith, James, Love, Mozgov. Out: Varejao, Marion.
Mozgov going out with 3 fouls has allowed Pistons to start working middle, finding shooters. Detroit now 6-of-8 from deep, up 5.
Three fouls now on Mozgov in the first half.
What a difference when Mozgov catches the ball
Timofey Mozgov's athleticism, on both ends, is a factor in Detroit. Extremely coordinated for a guy his size. Cavs up 39-33.
Quietly, Kevin Love's rim protection numbers (per @NBAstats) have improved dramatically. Was allowing 59.9% at Mozgov trade. Now 53.8%.
Las llegadas de Mozgov, JR Smith, Shaumpert y Perkins fortificaron a Cavs. Irving y Love están mejorando y por si fuera poco tienen a LeBron
Since Mozgov's arrival, he, Love and Thompson have played 93% of Cleveland's PF/C minutes the first 3 quarters. Not sure where Perk fits.
Jim Dolan is going to absolutely freak out when J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Timofey Mozgov reach the NBA Finals.
Kris Humphries just sat there as Mozgov collected himself for the layup.
Gortat on why Mozgov’s been good w/Cavs: “His size. He’s 7-2. He’s European. He’s coming from a different culture. He’s super white.”
Crazy trade year: Rondo, Dragic, Green, Waiters, Knight, Kanter, Young, Garnett, Jackson, Carter-Williams, Brewer, McGee, Afflalo, Mozgov!
So Nuggets held out for that second 1st round pick from Cleveland (the OKC pick) for Mozgov basically so they could salary dump Javale McGee
Regarding Denver's demands for Afflalo and Chandler -- most folks also thought they were crazy for requesting 2 first-round picks for Mozgov
5 fouls on Mozgov
Hmm. There is a chance Mozgov hears from the league office on that one
Timofey Mozgov & Tristan Thompson are 25-for-29 the past 2 nights, against the Heat and Bulls.
Timofey Mozgov picks up his 4th PF less than a minute into 3Q, picks up a technical foul on way to the bench.
Mozgov with 4th foul early in 3rd qtr, but no cease fire as quickly draws technical.
