Byron Scott, Cavs Eye Changes for Next Year
(Tyler) Zeller was pulled from games in the fourth quarter recently when opponents went to smaller lineups, and Zeller’s presence would seem to give the Cavs a decided advantage in the post. Coach Byron Scott defended his decision to bench Zeller against smaller lineups from the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics because he said Zeller wasn’t yet a strong scorer in the post.
Friday was proof of what he meant.
“This is one of those things we talked about for next year,” Scott said. “I pretty much told him every time we set a pick-and-roll, if they switch, we want to get you on the box. He would get on the box and then come right back out. I think biggest thing is he’s not comfortable down there yet. and that’s something we’ve got to work on.”
