Cavs head coach Ty Lue was asked if we'll see more Tristan Thompson and very directly he replied, "yes."
Lue wouldn't specify whether Thompson would start in Game 1 on Tuesday, but not surprisingly the big man should see a lot of run. The 27-year-old was a big reason why the Cavs were able to squeeze past the Pacers dropping 15 points and 10 boards as well as shutting down Myles Turner (eight points). Thompson had only played a total of 23 minutes over the entire six games of the series before playing 35 minutes in Game 7.
