Thirty Second Half Story Arcs For 30 NBA Teams

Jeff Teague

Cleveland Cavaliers – A month into their new roster following the acquisitions of J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Timofey Mozgov, the Cavaliers seem to have found that winning groove they tantalized us with in early-December. The Cavaliers entered the break with 14 wins in 16 games and it’s not coincidental that LeBron James has put into another gear, averaging 27 points on 49 percent shooting. Perhaps the biggest question besides seeing if the Cavs keep playing well is how Kevin Love continues to play. He’s averaging a respectable 17 points and 10 rebounds but could always do more.
