The Cavs’ season has been a mixed bag, but that hasn’t stopped the franchise from putting on a nice show.
The Cavaliers beat the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals to capture the NBA title, and it’s safe to say they’ve done a lot to help their team improve.
The Cavs were one of the most popular teams in the NBA last season and were a trendy favorite to win the championship.
But they have had to battle with injuries and bad luck in the playoffs, and the Cavaliers’ season is off to a rocky start.
Cavs’ first loss of the season was against the Brooklyn Nets in Game 7, and they were outscored by an average of 13.3 points.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are the second-worst defensive team in the league, and in the second half of the regular season they were struggling to contain opposing guards.
Cleveland’s starting five of Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson, Traded Kyrie, Kyrie is the only player in the game to average over 14 points and five assists per game.
He’s been dominant defensively this season, with the Cavs allowing just 2.5 assists per 100 possessions.
Thompson has been especially effective, averaging 16.3 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game, and he’s averaging 16 points and 6 rebounds per contest.
Tristan has been phenomenal defensively, averaging 8.3 rebounds per 100.
He has allowed just 1.9 turnovers per 100 possession.
The most important player on this team, though, is Kyrie.
Kyrie has been the heart and soul of this Cavaliers team, and despite the struggles he’s been having offensively, he’s still been able to provide a big boost to this team.
Trades are just one part of the offense that the Cavs have been able.
The offense is built around LeBron James, and Kyrie’s ability to create space on the floor has made it easier for the Cavs to run the offense and score.
James is averaging 28.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 6.6 assists per contest this season.
James has been extremely effective, as he averages a career-high 3.6 3-pointers per game and is shooting 40.7 percent from the field.
The fact that he’s able to score and shoot well is no secret to anyone who follows the Cavs.
This season has really been a great start for James, as Cleveland has been able at the end of the first half of games to win, and when the Cavs get going again, they’re one of, if not the best team in basketball.
That’s good news for the Cavaliers, as they have to get back on track against the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals on Sunday.
