He reminded that he had played with players like Kyle Korver and LeBron James.
"Tristan's been great for us on defense, since he's been getting in the right spots", Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue said.
The 13-year veteran could be the playmaker that LeBron James and the Cavaliers have been looking for all season.
Lue is also sick, although he doesn't know if he has the same illness as James. Guys are going to be sick. The Cavs also drained 10 three-pointers and have now hit 10 or more triples in 47 contests this season.
Williams, who will wear No. 31 in Cleveland, thought of the Cavs first because they represented a chance to win a championship. In that stretch, he averaged 26.9 points and 6.0 assists.
"He knows this is his best opportunity to get a ring".
After holding Milwaukee to 95 points on Monday, the Cavs are now 15-1 this season when they hold opponents to under 100 points.
James stayed home to rest Saturday morning while his teammates went through a light workout at the club's training complex in Independence. The game plan has to center on James or Irving.
Chicago had seven players in double figures. "And then tonight, Kevin, Bron and J.R. (Smith) didn't play". It appeared Korver might join the list when he walked gingerly to the locker room, but he said tests after the game showed no structural damage. But I just wanted to make sure you're still paying attention. It was really scary. I don't see anything there."Me neither.In the first meeting, the Cavs were playing on the second night of a back-to-back". He can get us into sets.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have emerged as the favorite to sign veteran center Andrew Bogut provided he can negotiate his release from the Philadelphia 76ers by Wednesday, according to league sources.
Williams will be the backup point guard to Kyrie Irving, adding much needed depth to Cleveland's second unit.
"It's a point guard's dream", Williams said of all the talent on the team.
Bulls: G Michael Carter-Williams didn't make the trip after injuring his knee Friday against Phoenix.
"We've been in contact", he said. G Cameron Payne, acquired from Oklahoma City before the trade deadline, scored six points in his team debut.
