Did you see that? Your Cleveland Cavaliers have won their last three games in a row. They have found the missing link, they have found a defensive effort that helped the Cavs beat the Orlando Magic. The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Magic last night with some magic of their own. The Cavaliers scored 119 points in the contest. They have now won 7 of their last 10 games. Kyrie Irving scored 24 points last night and Tristan Thompson scored 21 and had 8 rebounds.
The Cavaliers have found something in the last 10 games that is helping this team win. Last Saturday when the team was able to pull off a win over the Thunder the players got the feeling of what it is like to beat one of the NBA’s best teams. I think they liked it and now it is spreading throughout the Cavs locker room faster than a wild-fire. Playing defense is something that has been missing from the Cavaliers all season long. So many time the team just needed a better defensive effort to get a win.
Now that they have found it, as a fan you just have to wonder if the team can continue to execute it. The Cavaliers take on Denver tonight, we will see if the team continues to play solid defense and if the Cleveland Cavaliers can win their 4th game in a row. The Cavs are now 16-34 on the season. Still in last place in the NBA Eastern Conference Central Division trailing by three games.
