Will miss at least a few games. If Love was playing this would not really matter (Thompson has not a very good season per cavs fans) , but with them both out and no longer having Frye their only big now is Nance...

Cavs are currently only 3 games ahead of the 7th seed Bucks. At this point the Celtics could play them in any round.

Somehow I think they will hang onto 3rd seed, particularly since Wiz are struggling again. Can't take advantage of Cav slide.

The Pacers have been playing really good lately and are also right on their heels.

The Pacers have a very difficult schedule.  14 games against teams above .500 (including 2 games each against the Warriors and Raptors) and only 5 against teams below .500 (and 2 of those are their last 2 against the Hornets).  They are currently the 4th seed, but honestly with their schedule I wouldn't be surprised to see them fall all the way to 8th.

Well they beat the Pistons by 22 and James played under 29 minutes.  They started Nance, Hood, and Hill along with James and Smith, so they went super small and the Pistons couldn't handle it. 

Zizic did get 16 minutes of mostly junk time, but did go 3 for 3 for 6 points and added 6 boards, 2 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, with 3 fouls (basically all career highs).  Pretty good game from the rookie even if it was mostly in garbage time.

Žižić time!
I have seen enough - Žižić dominated.
It is no coincidence that the rudderless Cavs won once he got some minutes.

Although, I have to admit that his 209 ORtg was somewhat disappointing. 250 is the goal.
