When the Cavaliers’ offense gets clicking, it is a highlight reel in and of itself.
Take this play from Saturday’s Cleveland win over Indiana. LeBron James makes a long outlet pass to Kyrie Irving and he attacks the rim in transition but the Pacers get back and cut off the easy bucket, so Irving kicks it to Shawn Marion in the opposite corner. That pass is a little off target and by the time Marion controls it he’s covered and has no shot so he passes back out to the trailer LeBron.
At that point LeBron waves at Marion like he wants him to cut to the rim, but it’s all a distraction and LeBron hits an open Irving for the easy bucket.
Irving was making plays, too. Check out this rebound and mid-air outlet pass to Marion from the same game.
