Top 5 X-Factors For The Cavaliers For 2014-15 Season

David Richard | USA TODAY Sports

1. Defense

We can admit it. The defense that led to the Cavs 19-20 start to the season was difficult to watch. Since the trades, and since LeBron’s sabbatical, the tone has changed. The team is 18-3 since that time, and their defense is almost more glaringly different than their offense. The numbers can be analyzed to prove the advances on that end of the floor, but all fans really need to see is the effort. Kyrie Irving and JR Smith are fighting over screens, Kevin Love and Timofey Mozgov are more physical than ever, and LeBron is active in the passing lanes. If this continues, we should remain the favorite in the east.
