Tristan Thompson finished with nine points (3-6 FG, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists and a block over 25 minutes in the Cavaliers’ 123-105 loss to the Knicks on Monday.
Thompson was highly overmatched in this one, as he faced the likes of Julius Randle, Bobby Portis and Mitchell Robinson, while playing without Kevin Love or Larry Nance. As a result, he had one of his worst games of the season. Thompson is in the midst of a career year, and this game should just be a blip on the radar. A bounce back effort should materialize quickly.
