Offensive firepower

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

The Cavaliers are starting to remind me of the Browns. You know, they put points up on the board, but just can’t stop anyone.
We’ve been writing about this for weeks. They are allowing more than 100 points a game and teams to shoot 46 percent from the field. Trust me, the first thing Coach Mike Brown looks at on the box score are those numbers. He was harping about their defense more than their 13 3-pointers.
The Cavs have been fun to watch, especially MVP candidate LeBron James.
If the Cavs don’t shore up their defense, they won’t be a major factor in the postseason. And, that’s exactly why I’m not looking for too much out of the Browns. Their defense is porous and they can’t stop the run.
But, like the Cavs, the Browns are fun to watch for the first time in years. Another thing I’ve observed is the Cavs are operating under the radar because of the Browns’ success.
The focus hasn’t shifted to them yet. And, it might not until the Browns are either eliminated from the playoffs or fall just short.
