Is this a different Cavs team?

It’s now 22 games or so into the season, which is more than a quarter of the way through. What does that mean? It means it’s time to dig around the leagues for some trends that might not hold true in the long run, but are sure entertaining to ponder with a decent sample size … Continue reading
