Anthony Bennett great 4th quarter in preseason game
* Watching Anthony Bennett score from all over the floor during the game’s final 5 ˝ minutes demonstrated for the first time why the Cavaliers selected him first overall in June’s draft. Had it been a regular season game, however, he probably never would’ve gotten the chance.
* Bennett made his last six shots, including a pair of 3-pointers and a pair of turnaround fadeaways. He scored inside, he scored outside. He held his ground defensively and drew an offensive foul when Andrew Nicholson couldn’t move him off the block and eventually shoved him with an elbow to the neck – but Bennett ruined it seconds later by snatching the ball out of Nicholson’s hands for a technical.
* Bennett scored 16 points, including 14 in the fourth quarter after missing his first five shots. He grabbed 10 rebounds in the preseason opener against the Bucks, demonstrating his lack of size (6-foot-8) shouldn’t stop him from grabbing rebounds.
