JaVale McGee played 18 minutes vs. the Cavaliers but he still racked up 13 points on 6-of-7 shooting, four rebounds and four blocks.

If you toss out the games JaVale missed with a shin injury he's been great in his last five, averaging 10.6 points on 71 percent shooting, 3.8 rebounds and 3.2 blocks, all in a mere 16.2 minutes per game. Unfortunately, Kosta Koufos also had 10 points and nine rebounds in 17 minutes tonight, and there are no signs that McGee will suddenly win this entrenched position battle.
