Tough schedule? Who cares?
A colleague of mine commented the other day about the strength of the Cavaliers’ schedule this week.
Games against Indiana on Sunday, Boston on Tuesday, Detroit Wednesday and Toronto on Friday. Then they get a return engagement in Boston on Sunday.
I didn’t think it mattered who the Cavs were playing this week. It made no difference because of the way Cavs forward LeBron James was playing. I’ve never seen James play any better. This might sound strange, but despite leading the league in scoring, he’s playing unselfish basketball.
When double teamed, he’s finding the open man. And, the Cavs’ shooters are making 3-point shots. As long as they continue to shoot at a high percentage, they’ll continue to win. The Celtics had the best defense in the NBA, yet the Cavs shot 48 percent from the field.
