6 Cavaliers Who Need To Step Up For Cavs To Win Championship
It’s official: Kevin Love is out for 4-6 weeks after it was thought he could return in 2-3 weeks. GM David Griffin said it’s “highly unlikely” that Love returns for the playoffs, despite the 4-6 week diagnosis that could have him return for the NBA Finals. With Love out for the remainder of the season and also J.R. Smith out for the next two games, here are the six guys who HAVE to step up their game in order for the Cavs to have a chance at an NBA Championship:
6. James Jones / 5. Mike Miller
James Jones and Mike Miller are likely to see some playing time at the two and three spots as LeBron James will likely play the power forward spot. Jones has gotten consistent playing time this season and made an impact spreading the floor, but Miller has been mostly an afterthought most of the season with the Cavs acquiring J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert. Miller and Jones will need to do a lot of this is the Cavs are to advance further into the playoffs.
