Ante Zizic started at center on Friday night and was able to post 11 points (4-of-4 from the field, 3-of-6 from the line), seven rebounds and a steal in 20 minutes.
It's surprising that Zizic started over Tristan Thompson against Detroit, as the Cavs have said that TT will get the assignment against bigger centers. Larry Nance is dealing with a sprained ankle and could miss the start of the season, opening the door a crack for young Zizic to see a little time. He's not going to be a fantasy option, but this is a nice glimpse of what he could do if Thompson got traded. The veteran went for 13 & 9 in 22 minutes and will remain a low-upside plodder.
