Watch: Tristan Thompson blocks Rodney Stuckey to seal Cavs win

Tristan Thompson was the hero for the Cavs on Tuesday.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson normally impacts the game in subtle ways. His game isn't flashy and when he changes the game in a meaningful way, it often comes in ways that go unnoticed.

Monday night was the exception. Thompson, a possession after scoring the Cavs' go-ahead basket, swatted Rodney Stuckey's layup at the rim to help seal the win for Cleveland. It also was key in helping the Cavs snap their two-game losing streak with a 100-96 win.

Via The Cauldron:

It's worth noting that Matthew Dellavedova and Kyrie Irving did a really nice job to funnel Stuckey towards Thompson inside. But Thompson deserves most of the credit here, as his block was spectacular.
