Wow. As you know, I am no way a Cavs fan. However, I am a NBA fan and I must give credit where credit is due. Last night, March 3rd 2017, the Cleveland Cavaliers faced off against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta. On a night where the ATL retired the great Pistol Pete‘s
jersey, and also Kyle Korver making his return, the Cavs stole the show. I’m not writing this lil post to dick ride the Cavs. I am writing because an important, underrated part of this record is not being talked about.
The Cavs shot 46 3 pointers last night, and made 25 of them. 25 people. That’s 54% from downtown. To me, that is more impressive than anything because it was well within the flow of the game. It wasn’t like *cough HOUSTON ROCKETS. cough* just jacking up 3 pointers. And you know, I am not a big stats guy. But check this out: LeBron went 6 for 10, Kyrie went 5 for 8, Channing Frye went 3 for 6, Iman Shumpert went 2 for 6, Kyle Korver went 3 for 7, Derrick Williams went 3 for 4, and Richard Jefferson went 3 for 5. All this without J.R. Smith and Kevin Love.
Do you guys think the defending champions can pull it off again? Let me know in the comments section. ✌
