Larry Nance Jr. was only able to manage 11 points and seven rebounds on 4-of-5 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line on Friday night.
Nance played 31 minutes tonight, which is a positive, but his lack of defensive numbers is a disappointment for sure. His upside warrants some patience, as although it's been frustrating to hear that all year long, Nance's defensive potential gives him an easy path to top-100 value if he could ever get it together. With ex-starter Sam Dekker now in Washington, the Cavs don't have many alternatives up front. Jaron Blossomgame played 19 minutes tonight so it's not like Nance is getting pushed for time at the moment.
