1. Get The Bench Involved Early- The turning point of most Cavs games this season is when the bench checks in. It’s no secret that the second unit has been productive when called upon even as members of that squad are bumped up to the starting rotation due to injuries. With setbacks to Derrick Rose and Iman Shumpert, Jose Calderon has been plucked from his seat and inserted into the starting five. The idea of losing two main guys in the rotation would be worrisome to most teams, but Cleveland is blessed with a three-headed bench monster.
Led by Dwyane Wade, Kyle Korver, and Jeff Green, the bench has been a welcomed surprise and continues to light it up when necessary. It appears we will finally see how good this team can be now that the starting lineup is finding their rhythm.
With an average of twenty-nine points coming from the aforementioned names, it’s hard for anyone to stop that kind of attack. The lack of depth for the Nets could do them in tonight.
