Cleveland Cavaliers head coach JB Bickerstaff applauded Evan Mobley for his dominant all-around performance during last night’s 128-105 In-Season Tournament home win vs. the Atlanta Hawks (17 points/19 rebounds/1 assist/7 blocks/8-11 FG/1-1 3-PT/+25 +/-).

Reporter: “Evan Mobley just all over the floor. How impactful was he tonight and how impactful can he be for this team going into the future?”
Bickerstaff: “I mean it’s cliche, but there is no limits to what Evan Mobley can be. He is a flat-out stud on both ends of the floor. There’s not many people who now or in the future will have the ability to impact the game on both sides of the floor the way that he can. Again, everybody is pressing, pressing, pressing: Score, score, score. But Evan Mobley is an elite basketball player. He’s not a one-dimensional guy. A stat doesn’t dictate how impactful he is on the floor. He’s all over the place: 17 points, 19 rebounds, 7 blocks. He’s all over the floor doing everything, and that’s the type of basketball player that he is. His numbers may not be or his points may not be what people want them to be, but Evan Mobley is a stud and he can dominate a game like he did tonight.”
