Head coach Tyronn Lue of the Cleveland Cavaliers during the first half of the National Basketball Association game against the Phoenix Suns at Talking Stick Resort Arena on March 13, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona. Just because he didn't play last night or that much in the Boston series, I've always talked to him about being ready, staying ready, because he is a great talent and we're going to need him. "I've been preparing, I've been working hard, so if I get the opportunity, just go out there and play".
"He's going to get a chance and an opportunity".
Hood, a rangy 6-8, 206-pound player acquired from the Utah Jazz in February in the Jae Crowder trade, is averaging 4.4 points on 41.8 percent shooting (15.0 percent from 3), 1.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists in the playoffs.

United snap up 'best young full back in Europe' Dalot
Dalot, who primarily plays at right back, follows Brazil global and former Shakhtar Donetsk star Fred to the Theatre of Dreams. The first pictures of Manchester United's latest signing Diogo Dalot in next season's kit have been released by the club.
And the former Duke prospect said he needs to show his mental strength in order to rediscover his form. "And then, this is my first time having DNPs (did not plays) in my life...." The first time shooting two times or five times in a game. It's a part of my growth. "Just try and be physical, I think that's the biggest thing T-Lue's been stressing to me once I got there".
That said, Hood's tenure with the Cavs understandably has been tough, and being grouped into the intense spotlight that surrounds LeBron James hasn't made it any easier. "I've been through a tough time before.' It can help me in future endeavors".
"You lose a game and you feel like the world is coming down". With guys like JR Smith not performing like years past, he was a minus 22 last game, and Jordan Clarkson building his own brick house in Oakland, perhaps Hood gets those minutes. That's something he and I talked about going back to the IN series and really since I've been here. "Other guys around the league been talking to me, sending me messages and just telling me to stay ready, and if my number is called just play and have fun, don't put too much pressure on myself".
