It was Clint Eastwood in the movie "Magnum Force," who introduced the phrase, "A man's got to know his limitations" into the pop culture lexicon. It's a philosophy Tristan Thompson is embracing during his rookie season on the offensive end. The power forward averages 7.1 points per game, mostly on dunks, offensive-rebound conversions and the occasional baby hook. He rarely strays beyond five feet of the rim when shooting. "I know what the team needs me to do and as of right now a big thing is not shooting a 15 footer," Thompson said. But come off-season, the coaching staff wants to expand Thompson's offensive game and it plans to enlist the help of former Cavs All-Star Zydrunas Ilgauskas.
