2. Supporting Cast Plays Well- Four other Cavaliers scored in double digits tonight, that being Dwyane Wade, Kevin Love, Jae Crowder, and Kyle Korver. While LeBron bided his time in the first three quarters, his teammates made shots that kept Cleveland in it. It was exciting to see another performance from Wade in which he seemed to find his footing with the second unit. As the first-unit lifer figures out his flow while coming off the bench, the Cavs continue to get better.
When Wade finds his rhythm in the early goings of the game, he’s lethal late. Ty Lue elected to have him on the court a lot down the stretch after he had such a positive output and it worked well for all parties involved. That is, of course, besides the Brooklyn Nets. They didn’t enjoy being on the receiving end of Wade’s outstanding play.
