Tristan Thompson To Miss Multiple Games With Sprained Ankle

Jordan Clarkson, Rodney Hood and Larry Nance Jr are averaging in double-digit scoring since they came to Cleveland.

The main takeaway from the Cavaliers' 112-90 victory over the Detroit Pistons on March 5 is how history is repeating itself for the Cavaliers and Larry Nance. He said he spoke with his teammates about what happened but not with Jones, a former National Basketball Association player who has been on Tyronn Lue's staff for two seasons.

LeBron James (hint, HE's the anchor) poured in 31 points to go with seven rebounds and seven assists in 29 minutes. He drained a trio of 3s during that 17-5 run, including a pullup in transition to finish it off.

The Cavs snapped a two-game slide and finished their season's longest homestand with a 2-3 mark.

All those up and downs have made the Cavs fan base stronger than ever, but the team's front office has always struggled to keep their stars happy, and it always seems like they're a move away from completely falling apart.

Cleveland lost another big man on Sunday as the team said starting center Tristan Thompson sustained a sprained right ankle during Saturday's loss and is expected to miss "multiple games".

Thompson scored 12 points and had seven rebounds in 28 minutes against the Nuggets.

Additionally, Nance Jr. corralled four offensive rebounds, and more importantly than that, 11 on the defensive end while guarding Detroit center Andre Drummond, who is known for his ability to create second-chance opportunities.

After being acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers on February 8, Nance Jr. was kept with the Cavaliers' second lineup while learning the offensive and defensive sets.

Head to head, the home team is 7-1 ATS in the last eight meetings, the over is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings in Cleveland and the Pistons are 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings in Cleveland. Drummond contributed 15 points and nine boards, but only took five shots.

Cleveland owned the paint, winning the rebounding battle 53-40 and outscoring Detroit in the lane, 40-26. His 6.3 points are a career low and his 6.5 boards tie his career low.

After being used part of the team's rotation on the defensive line his first five years in the league, Curry started every game of the 2017 season, finishing with 25 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble. Nance, acquired in a trade from the Lakers on February 8, is averaging 10.0 points and 6.6 boards since joining Cleveland.
