Top 5 Cavalier Lineups for 2014-15 Season
After numerous trades, the Cavaliers have many options they could go to offensively and both defensively. The Cavs currently start Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith, LeBron James, Kevin Love, and Timofey Mozgov. Here, we’ll take a look at some of the top lineups the Cavs can and should use going down the stretch (other than the starting lineup), maybe even for the playoffs. We start with the fifth best lineup:
5. Matthew Dellavedova – Kyrie Irving – Iman Shumpert – Tristan Thompson – Kevin Love
Since Kyrie rests the final four minutes of the first quarter, he would likely start the second withe the second unit. Irving would be in attack mode with this lineup while Shumpert and Dellavedova are defending the best opposing wing plays. With all the attention on Irving and Thompson inside, Love can take his game to the perimeter where he’s been very successful this season. Having a guard and forward who can defend all of the wing positions really gives the Cavs an advantage going into the playoffs.
