PREVIEW: New-look Cavs seek redemption against Thunder

3. The first (five) Cedi

In case you missed it yesterday, Cedi Osman is remaining in the starting lineup.

As of right now, his stay with the first unit is open-ended. In his first two games as a starter, he’s averaging 14 points while shooting 59 percent from the field. He’s also averaging 5.5 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals.

On Sunday, Osman found himself guarding Kyrie Irving at times and will have another tough test on Tuesday guarding either Paul George or Russell Westbrook. It’s a test he welcomes openly.

“He’s fearless man,” head coach Tyronn Lue said after Monday’s practice. “He’s going to play hard, he’s going to compete. He has a lot of tough matchups but he’s giving the effort and the maximum intensity so that’s all you can ask for.”
