The team with the most talent usually wins any basketball game. Sure, team play and intangibles can change that outcome, but at the end of the day, the team with the most talent usually wins.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have a lot of talent.
And while we can debate their defensive focus or how well they are playing, when the combo of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love drop 89 points in a game — as they did on the Pacers Monday — Cleveland will generally win.
The Cavs are now up 2-0 in their first-round series heading to Indiana for Game 3.
