Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson spoke to the media on Monday following their 113-100 win on Sunday night against the Celtics.
Thompson came off the bench and gave the Cavaliers a much needed energy boost, scoring 12-points and 6 rebounds in 26-minutes played.
Thompson talked about his role on the team, "My role doesn't change whether it's the playoffs or regular season. My job is to come off the bench and bring that energy, bring that spark."
It's like a company, you got your sanitation workers, you got your janitors, got your CEO's, got your secretaries. I don't mind being the clean up guy, punch in the clock and do all the little things," Thompson said when asked about being the clean up guy "I'll stay a janitor forever. Nothing wrong with that, everyone has their place in the factory, so I don't mind being the little things. If that's what it takes to win and be great, so be it."
Thompson and the Cavaliers will take on the Boston Celtics in Game 2 of the first round of the playoffs on Tuesday at Quicken Loans Arena. The Cavaliers currently have a 1-0 series lead.
