Reign of The Big Three!!!

Yeah it’s easy to talk about “The Big Three” in Cleveland, as in Love, Irving and James but the big story here is the amount of three-point shots that are being put up by the team. You want to know what the best part about it is that it’s not just one or two players contributing to these three point shots but more of a team effort.

This early part of the season, the Cavaliers are averaging 13.2 made 3-pointers a game and averaging 35 .7 attempts a game. Some may actually think that’s a lot of 3- point attempts, but according to head coach Tyronn Lue, he doesn’t think they are making enough, so in other words I guess it’s safe to say that these numbers should increase.

At the moment guard/forward Iman Shumpert leads the team in three-point field goal percentage, shooting 50%, but forward/center Channing Frye is right behind him, shooting 48.8%,  including six more on Sunday against the Charlotte Hornets.  Guards J.R. Smith (A.K.A. Swish) and Kyrie Irving have also contributed to quite amount of threes made as well so far this season.

Last season in the playoffs against Atlanta, we noticed that Lue implemented a plan to get three’s up and that’s exactly what the Cavaliers did, where they were able to set a NBA record for most 3-pointers made in a single game by a team which is 25 now thanks to Cleveland.

Makes you wonder if Cleveland is the new “Splash City”, right? Better yet, Coach Lue what’s next on your ‘Things to do’ list? We’re all waiting to see how much more will it be raining three’s “Deep in The Q“.
