On the Cavaliers without center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who's sidelined indefinitely with a broken left foot:
"When they had Ilgauskas, you had to double-team him, and that opened up shots for guys like Lamond Murray and Trajan Langdon. Now that he's not there, you go in saying, 'We don't have to double anybody.' Their hope is that they can develop [7'1" rookie] Chris Mihm, because a front line with Clarence Weather-spoon and Tractor Traylor isn't going to worry anybody. At the same time, they're playing in the East, so they have a chance to hang in there and grab the seventh or eighth playoff spot."
