Five Reasons Why Fans Should Not Worry About The Cavs
The Cleveland Cavaliers are in a prime position in the Eastern Conference and also in the entire NBA. They currently own a record of 28 wins and 11 losses through 39 games of the 2015-2016 NBA season. Any team would be happy with that record and winning percentage through almost the halfway point of the season. For some perspective, after 39 games last season, the team had a record of 19 wins and 20 losses.
Outside of the 34-point beating put on them by the defending champion Golden State Warriors, the Cavaliers have looked absolutely amazing out there. They have won eight of their last 10 games. They also just completed a six-game road trip where they finished with a 5-and-1 record in which they went 2-of-3 against the “Texas Triangle”, with the sole loss being handed by the San Antonio Spurs.
On that note, here are five reasons why fans should not be worried about the state of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Reason #5: The steady presence that is Tristan Thompson.
This year Thompson is proving that he is worth the money with his hustle and rebounding, especially off the offensive glass. He is averaging 7.6 points per and 9.4 rebounds per game so far this season but his true value go beyond the numbers. He has recently been starting at center and has been making a significant difference in the play of the team overall. His ability to quickly slide down on defense is very important when defending quicker paced attacks by the opponent.
Another amazing thing that Thompson brings to the court is his mere presence, literally. He is now the NBA’s leader in most number of consecutive games played among active players and that speaks a lot about his discipline and commitment – two things that are definitely championship ingredients.
