Mike Brown may have found the right combination of starters and the proper mix off the bench. Cleveland is playing like a team and they are winning.
Last night Kyrie Irving led the team in scoring with 22 points. He also had 7 rebounds and 7 assists. Luol Deng scored 17 and Tristan Thompson and Tyler Zeller both scored 16 points.
You have to wonder if all the wins are going to change Deng’s mind about staying in Cleveland. Just a couple of weeks ago, he was talking about how bad the discipline problem was on this team.
Somehow, someway the Cavaliers have been able to pull their act together and for the first time all season you would think, maybe this team could reach the NBA play-offs.
If Cleveland continues to play the kind of ball, they are playing now, people will be changing their minds about Mike Brown too. It’s hard to understand how this team pulled it together after such a terrible start to the season.
The thing is they are playing great now and fans have to be hoping they can continue to do what they are doing now.
If they do, they could reach post season play.
