Cleveland Cavaliers big man Anderson Varejao has been one of the better stories early this NBA season. After missing the final 41 games of last season with a fractured wrist Varejao is averaging 14.5 points and a league-leading 15.2 rebounds through 20 games.
Varejao is known more for his hustle and work on the glass but his scoring output would represent a career-high if he’s able to sustain it. Dwight Howard apparently respects Varejao’s jumper enough to go for the pump fake, leaving Jordan Hill left to protect rim. That didn’t work out well.
This is Anderson Varejao’s world, Jordan Hill is just living in it.
Hill made his first start of season after a strong showing off the bench in Sunday’s game against the Utah Jazz where he scored 17 pts (8-11 FG) with 9 rebounds and 4 blocks.
