Insert your own “the Browns could use a new quarterback” joke here.
The Cavaliers were throwing long Monday night, connecting on five touchdown passes for buckets. You can say this much for the Hornets, they actually got back in transition defense on a few of these. It just didn’t matter.
The Cavaliers offense was clicking Monday night — they raced out to a 21-0 lead in the game and the game never felt in doubt after that — and when it is going right you get a lot of these. Usually these come from Kevin Love, the best outlet passer in the game (and when he’s on the court guys leak out knowing they could get an easy bucket at the other end) but Monday night Kyrie Irving and LeBron James got in on the act, too.
It makes the Cavaliers entertaining to watch. And these kind of easy buckets make them harder to beat, too.
