Timofey Mozgov Accidentally Answered a Pregame Question in Russian


Timofey Mozgov had a slight lapse in memory tonight before Cleveland faced off against Brooklyn and answered a pregame question in Russian. The Cavs big man must have forgotten that he was speaking to an American audience, but Cavs’ sideline reporter Allie Clifton handled the answer like a pro and moved right along. Mozgov realized what he’d done and answered the second question in English before cracking up at his own mistake.

The Cavs won 117-92 and Mozgov finished 7-of-8 from the field and scored 17 points.
