Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue announced that Tristan Thompson would miss two weeks with his sprained right ankle.Translation: that's how long Larry Nance Jr. has to lock down a spot as the Cavs' starting center."He's starting now", Lue said.Well, yes, with Thompson down due to injury, Nance got the call in the Cavs' 112-90 romp of Detroit. And beyond that, its possible Lue could keep Nance in his first five. "Momma told me a long time ago to mind your business".

Blake Griffin leads in scoring with 18.8 while Andre Drummon averages 15.2 points per game.

James led the way, but it was Nance who helped negate Drummond and Detroits size advantage with several big plays.

The Cavs can't trade their Brooklyn Nets pick until draft night, but considering this pick is supposed to be among the top 5, it's very likely that they're going to have a lot of takers and draw major interest with this extremely stacked draft class.

HOUSTON - Eric Gordon scored 29 points off the bench, James Harden had 26 points and 10 assists, and Houston outlasted Boston to extend its winning streak to a season-high 15 games.

Griffin credited Nance with fueling the Cavs. "He's talented. He's got a high ceiling".

But no play was better than this alley oop connection between J.R. Smith and Nance where Nance made an wonderful catch before finishing the oop.

Blige ( MUDBOUND ), Lesley Manville ( PHANTOM THREAD ), Laurie Metcalfe ( LADY BIRD ) and Octavia Spencer ( THE SHAPE OF WATER ). After the raucous laughs died down, she said there could be "nothing further from the truth". "I love you", she added.


Catching a pass on the baseline, Nance, who recently participated in the dunk contest during All-Star weekend, took one dribble, cocked his arm and posterized Mason Plumlee.

Detroit fell to 2-9 since February 9 and is 6-9 since Griffin arrived in a blockbuster trade.

Detroit scored the next six points, but its frustration mounted as Drummond and Griffin were both whistled for technicals.
