Byron Scott Praises Hickson, Gibson After Win

Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott had plenty to be excited about after last night’s win over Boston. In particular, the play of J.J. Hickson and Daniel Gibson.

When asked about Gibson, Scott wasn’t shy:

“He’s been great all preseason and all training camp. I knew he wasn’t going to lose confidence in himself. I think everyone was a little nervous and excited. We made a few mistakes that we hadn’t been making, but you have to give them (Boston) credit because they are one of the best defensive teams in the league. We came back in the second half and did a heck of a job.”

The real star fo the game was Hickson, however, who showed why the Cavaliers drafted him in the 1sst round a couple years ago:

“He was great tonight. He did some really good things on the offensive end and some really good things on the defensive end. He had some lapses on the defensive end…but his activity tonight and his aggressiveness was fantastic. He got us off to a great start and in the second half, he didn’t have a letdown. Hopefully, it’s a sign of things to come.”
