Tristan Thompson shot 2-of-8 from the field and 5-of-12 from the line for nine points with 13 boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 33 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday.

None of his six misses were blocked, which is a small surprise. Despite the quiet showing tonight, Thompson is enjoying a breakout sophomore year and is shooting an impressive 52 percent from the floor in 2013. He had a major red flag last year in getting his shot blocked and led the league in blocked percentage at 16 percent, but he's only been blocked 13 percent of the time since January 1. He is flirting with double-doubles while adding a block every night and belongs in all lineups.
