Rodney Hood started in place of J.R. Smith (suspension) on Thursday and produced 11 points, five rebounds, five assists, one triple and one block.
This was a spot start with Smith expected back in the Cavs’ next game. Hood has not been aggressive as the coaching staff would prefer, with attempting just 3.4 shots from downtown over his last five games. Hopefully, some of LeBron’s champion-aura will rub off on Hood sooner rather than later. Tonight’s line was decent but still not good enough for Hood to be owned in leagues shallower than 14 teams.
