He has played in only three games this season, so Omri Casspi admitted he was nervous playing a season-high 14 minutes at Oklahoma City on Sunday.

"I was a little anxious in the beginning," said Casspi, who made just one of seven shots. "I wasn't comfortable, a little nervous, finally playing in real time when the game is tied and close.

"But it's just the first game. I know I didn't shoot it well, but it's just getting into rhythm and getting back to playing."

Casspi did make all four of his free throws -- another Cavs problem -- and he had four rebounds, three on the defensive end, and two steals. As coach Byron Scott continues to mix and match the pieces of his unproductive second unit, he has asked his reserves to concentrate on defense.

"I think I did a good job defensively," he said. "I just need to keep going. That's what coach wants us to focus on. ... It's about defense first and the shots will fall."
