“Some guys are just like that. They develop a rhythm to playing. There are just guys who feel more comfortable starting than coming off the bench,” head coach Larry Drew said following Friday’s practice. “I think everybody wants to start, but everybody’s production as a starter is not very good. As a coach, what I try to do, I try to look at what a guy does as a starter versus what he does off the bench. Certainly with G Hill out, Collin has definitely stepped up to the plate and made his presence felt and has made a major impact to what we’ve been doing.”

With a true point guard, the Cavaliers finally had a go-to offensive set to counter the Pacers’ smart halftime adjustments that had a big role in how out of sync the Cavs looked coming out of the locker room. The Cavs repeatedly called for the lethal 1-3 pick and roll that was a staple of their Finals runs the last three years. “G-Hill not playing in the first half coming in the third quarter and giving us that spark at the point guard position with him and LeBron running the 13 action, it was huge for us,” Thompson said. “He was able to make shots, get to the lane and put pressure on (Bojan) Bogdanovic to either pick or choose.”

Utah Jazz point guard George Hill went to the locker room with 0.6 seconds left in the first quarter Saturday night after being elbowed in the face by Phoenix Suns center Alex Len. Hill received stitches for a lower lip laceration and underwent concussion testing. He did not return for the second half of the Jazz’s 91-86 win in Salt Lake City. There is no timetable for Hill’s return. He exhibited concussion-like symptoms and now will go through league-mandated concussion protocol before he’s cleared to play.
