What you need to know about the Cavaliers
The Cavaliers took their game against the Miami Heat on Sunday by a conclusive 113-87 score. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Cleveland had established a 95-64 advantage. Point guard Darius Garland and small forward Cedi Osman were among the main playmakers for Cleveland as the former had 25 points and seven assists and the latter posted a double-double on 20 points and 12 rebounds.
The Cavs are arguably the most balanced team in the league, ranking third in defensive efficiency and fourth in offensive efficiency. Donovan Mitchell has taken his game to another level in his new digs as he’s averaging career highs in points (29.9), rebounds (4.4), assists (5.8) and blocks (0.5) per game. Kevin Love (thumb) missed Sunday’s game as did Dean Wade (knee), and both will be game-time decisions for Monday.
What you need to know about the Hawks
Meanwhile, it may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Atlanta ultimately got the result it was hoping for this past Saturday with a 124-122 victory over the Toronto Raptors. It was another big night for the Hawks’ point guard Trae Young, who dropped a double-double on 33 points and 12 dimes.
Young had the assist on rookie AJ Griffin’s buzzer-beating game-winner and the point guard ranks second in the NBA with 9.5 dimes per game. Atlanta’s offensive philosophy is the opposite of the NBA’s current trend of leaning on the 3-pointer as the Hawks rank last in both 3P makes and attempts while ranking first in both 2P makes and attempts. Newcomer Dejounte Murray continues to fill up the box score and is averaging 21.1 points, 7.4 assists, 6.3 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game.
