On any given night, the Cleveland Cavaliers can beat anyone. Especially, as the Brooklyn Nets learned, when they get 42 points from Collin Sexton.
It was a big week for the Cavs, who came up with two wins against the Nets but ended flat with a blowout loss to the Boston Celtics.
The offense has struggled from time to time, but the one constant for Cleveland has been its defense. It has a top – 10 defensive rating and forces the most turnovers while scoring 21.1 points per game off them. Larry Nance Jr. has done a great job using his length to get in passing lanes, coming up with 2.3 steals per game.
Even with a bad loss, the Cavaliers are a surprising 8-8, and a lot of the credit starts with head coach J.B. Bickerstaff’s defense.
