Richard Jefferson scored nine points with four rebounds in 15 minutes against the Warriors Thursday night.
Jefferson was given the nearly impossible task of guarding Kevin Durant and was caught on the bad end of a shake and bake highlight reel play. Him guarding Durant is a mismatch that the Warriors exploited as much as they could. With that being said, he was one of the brighter spots off the bench for the Cavs and had a nice dunk as part of his 3-for-6 shooting performance. Jefferson can still give Cleveland quality minutes, but they’re going to have to do better than placing him on Durant.
