Analysis: Thompson is of particular importance to the Cavaliers, who went to the NBA Finals this past season. He has appeared in 308 consecutive games, has averaged 10.1 points and 8.4 rebounds over his career and saw his stock soar by averaging 9.6 points and 10.8 rebounds in this year's playoffs.

Analysis: Thompson started 15 games during the regular season, but 6-foot-8 big man has been most effective coming off the bench with Cleveland's second unit. Thompson had eight rebounds in 37 minutes in the first game. The Cavs are missing starters Kevin Love and J.R. Smith, facing the prospect of losing two games at home to start the series.

Analysis: Thompson, who was one of the NBA's best offensive rebounders last season with 3.3 per game, should reap the benefits of opponents' attention on Kevin Love and LeBron James on the glass.
