The Cavaliers were in Minnesota last night taking on the Timberwolves and they came away with a relatively easy 116-108 win. For Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue, it was another chance to coach against one of his friends and coaching mentors in Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau. Prior to the game, Lue was asked by a reporter about Thibodeau’s unique voice and Lue immediately launched into a pretty good impersonation.
Not much in the way of actual words there, but the grunting and general hoarseness of Lue’s voice certainly calls to mind the Timberwolves head coach. Lue and Thibodeau have known each other for a long time, going back to 2004 when Thibodeau was part of the Rockets coaching staff while Lue was still playing.
