With coaching changes and the current state of The Big Three taking most of the headlines in "The Land", we tend to forget about the "Ivan Drago" of the Cleveland Cavaliers in Timofey Mozgov. (Unless he's getting dunked on.) On Monday, he gave us a reminder of his presence.
Late in the 3rd quarter of the Cavs' matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Matthew Dellavedova threw an absurd lob to Mozgov on a breakaway. The Russian responded with a disrespectful left hand finish over Gorgui Dieng. Check out the crazy finish below.
Cleveland would hang on to win 114-107 over Minnesota to give the newly assigned Tyronn Lue his first win as a NBA head coach. Mozgov says, "Пожалуйста." (You're welcome.)
(Sidenote: Check out the official, #59 Gary Zielinski, get on his high horse and gallop his way down the court to stay on top of things. He looks like he might be able to out-run Peyton Manning in the 40-yard dash.)
