Zach Randolph didn't make the All-Star team, but Cavaliers coach Byron Scott is a big fan of the Grizzlies' rebounding monster. Randolph averaged 22.4 points and 14.2 rebounds (5.3 on the offensive end) in 17 games in January, and was named the Western Conference Player of the Month on Friday. But what impresses Scott about Randolph goes beyond his statistics. "What I like about Zach is that he's matured over the years from what I've seen," Scott said. "He's always been a guy who could go get you 20-10 [points-rebounds] every night. He's a double double waiting to happen. "What he's done the last few years is become more of a team player instead of it just being all about him. At one point, he was a pretty selfish player. Now he's looking to pass and wants to play with his other teammates. That makes him even more dangerous. Now he wants to win on a consistent basis."
