|Chuma Okeke: Approaches double-double|
Okeke put up 11 points (3-9 FG, 3-7 3PT, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in Tuesday's 120-115 win over Cleveland.
The Scoop: Okeke was one rebound shy of notching his fourth double-double of the season. While he was able to rack up rebounds, the Auburn product's numbers in that category have been less than stellar. The second-year forward has had 9-plus rebounds in just three of his last 18 contests.
