The next player to take on a new role for the Cavaliers will be Tristan Thompson. And the reason, according to coach Tyronn Lue, is the same that JR Smith went from the bench into the starting lineup for Game 2 against the Pacers. Trust. “I trust Double-T,” Lue said. There are no promises Thompson will see the court in meaningful minutes for Game 3 tonight, but Lue said Thompson would “get his shot at some point.”
Tristan Thompson was caught on video by TMZ making out with two women while his girlfriend Khloe Kardashian is imminently expecting a baby. Witnesses saw him bringing one woman back to his hotel on Saturday, and the New York Post has identified that woman as 28-year-old Instagram model Lani Blair (the Post also has what amounts to a play-by-play of their evening). Blair has over 360K followers on Instagram, but recently made it private.
This year has been a challenge, a season of frustration, as Thompson has missed 29 games with a pair of nagging injuries. All of that now seems to be in the past. The energetic big man is showing signs of once again rounding into his old form. Right in time for the playoffs. Just as James once preached. “He played like the Tristan of old I thought, in going after every rebound,” Larry Drew said. “Had a big blocked shot, I can’t remember who it was against, but it was a big shot. The guy was wide open, he came in and blocked it. TT did a phenomenal job that second half.”
