PREVIEW: Cavs, Wade meet again in Tuesday night clash

Offensive onslaught

The Cavs have scored 120-or-more points in each of their last four games, tying a franchise record. Interim head coach Larry Drew has his offense averaging 122.2 point per game throughout the five-game winning streak, the longest since the team rattled off five consecutive victories from Dec. 9 to Dec. 17.

Even with head coach Tyronn Lue on the mend, Cleveland is playing some of its best basketball of 2017-18.

James has spearheaded the charge with two straight Eastern Conference Player of the Week awards. He averaged 34.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 11 assists during that prosperous span, propelling the team to a 4-0 record. James has a career-high 45 doubles and his 10th career 2,000-point season (2,009 points), the first dating back to 2013-14. Besides James, no other NBA player has tallied 2,000 points, 500 rebounds and 500 assists over eight different years.

Kevin Love has also made an impact, with 18-or-more points and six-or-more rebounds in each of his four contests since returning from a fractured bone in his left hand. George Hill has scored 17-or-more points in two of his last three games, and has notched at least one block or steal in each of his past seven games.

James, Love and Hill figure to be the primary contributors on the offensive end of the ball moving forward.
