Now it's all up to J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert & Timofey Mozgov to rep New York in the postseason.
Timofey Mozgov is a 200-1 bet to win Finals MVP... similar to my own odds
Irving may not be at 100% health, & not a great PG defender, so Mozgov & Tristan as hedgers, switchers & rotating back very key vs. Curry.
Smith, Shumpert, Thompson, Dellavedova & Mozgov all dominated their Hawks counterparts which is why they were able to sweep the Hawks!
I'm not saying the Cavs will beat the Warriors, just that LeBron-Thompson-Mozgov is going to be an interesting matchup for them.
Eastern Conference Finals Center matchup: Al Horford: 11 points, 4 .8 rebs on 58% FG Timofey Mozgov: 10.8 points, 7.5 rebs on 57% FG
While LeBron James deserves props, give a nod to Tristan Thompson and Timofey Mozgov for making Hawks All-Star frontcourt look pedestrian
Coach Blatt empties his bench, subs out Delly, Timo, JR to a raucous ovation at The Q. Perk, Joe Harris, Mike Miller, Matrix enter the game.
Next week, Timofey Mozgov will try to be the first NBA player to win a title without hands.
Cavs are one half from the NBA Finals, up 59-42. LeBron 15p 6a 4r; Kyrie 11p; J.R. 10p; Mozgov 9p 4r; T.Thompson 6p 6r
Mozgov caught that joint with his wrists
How dare Mozgov ruin that
Best part of that JR three was Mozgov in the corner with his hands up and ready. Just in case JR passed.
So the small forwards aren't going to be able to check Mozgov. Didn't see that coming.
DeMarre Carroll didn't like something Mozgov did, but I couldn't tell what. Besides bull him back and score.
Why won't The Q show a replay of that Millsap goaltend? I wanted to see that again. It was very close. I mean, they showed the Mozgov one.
no excuse for what Horford did, but Mozgov should have been called for blocking foul much earlier in sequence
Mozgov moved much more than Bazemore on his screen. Illegal screen=the other guy fell down.
Nice high pick and roll between LeBron and Mozgov. The weakside action was tremendous
Cavs take lead, 42-40, with 2:51 left in first half on Mozgov's layup
Nice double high screens for Dellavedova where Jones actually pops to opposite side UNDER Mozgov's roll!
I don't think Mozgov was allowed to do that.
Timofey Mosgov just got a bloody nose going through his pregame workout. Timo goes hard. Always.
So, messing around in early work, Tristan Thompson dunked on Mozgov, and, yes, bloodied his nose. Timo off to trainer's room
Through two games: Timofey Mozgov and Tristan Thompson: 41 points and 44 rebounds Al Horford and Paul Millsap: 45 points and 25 rebounds
Tristan Thompson and Timofey Mozgov combine for 17 points and 23 rebounds. Al Horford and Paul Millsap total 16 points and 11 rebounds
Cavs up 84-66 after 3Q. What a masterful game LeBron is having: 28p 9a 7r 1b; Shumpert 14p on 5-for-7; Timo 10p; Tristan 14r; JJ 9p; J.R. 7p
