Defense is name of game
There's no question, when the Cavs defend, they win. It's as simple as that. In their last four games, the Cavs have held their opponents to 40.5 percent shooting and an average of 85.8 points.
It's not a sexy topic, and perhaps the readers are tired of hearing about it, but that's what it's going to take for the Cavs to continue the run they are on. They've won 3 of the last 4 games, and have several winnable games coming up on the schedule.
The Hawks shot 40.5 percent from the field on Wednesday in the Cavs' 98-94 win. By the way, the Hawks have talent, as evidenced by the fact they are over .500.
