Not sure how many of you guys got a chance to see the summer league game today, but JJ looked buck nasty. He had 26 points and 9 boards. He had a couple of monster put backs OVER players. He displayed a nice array of post up moves and even scored from 18 feet out. There is definitly an adjustment period to be had as he did turn the ball over a few times for traveling, but nonetheless looked strong. All this against a knicks squad that had guys who have seen nba minutes, balkman chandler etc.. His physicality was impressive. GO CAVS

Very exciting great news I seen some highlight of him dunking the ball on a put back. I know its just summer league but that is still good news that he has the offensive explosiveness.

He should get a few dunks per game playing alongside LeBron. He always was able to create those types of easy baskets for Drew Gooden. After we traded Gooden we no longer had any sure-handed and athletic low post players that could finish off powerful dunks on great passes from LeBron. Adding Hickson brings back that element to our team.

Thats true Hickson could make a living off of great passes from LeBron for easy dunks.

it is only summer league. but it's still a step above college ball, albeit a small step with JJ having played in the ACC. It's still SOMETHING POSITIVE to this offseason..

Good to see him do well in his debut game for the summer league. Hopefully he continue to do well in the summer league.

Hickson hits 24, but Cavs lose in Summer League
Las Vegas- Cleveland's No. 1 pick J.J. Hickson scored a game-high 24 points but it was not enough as the Cavs lost to the Milwaukee Bucks, 88-72, Sunday in the final NBA Summer League game.

Hickson scored 11 of the Cavaliers' 25 first-quarter points. He finished the game 10-of-17 from the field with five rebounds.


Clay Tucker and Romel Beck each chipped in with 14 points for the Cavs.

In the second half, the Bucks extended their lead to as many as 18 points on 58 percent shooting from the field during the third quarter. Milwaukee's lead then teetered around the 10-point mark through much of the fourth quarter before the eventual 16-point victory.
