The Cleveland Cavaliers through the first month of the season have been off to a blazing start. They look like a huge juggernaut in the league coming off their first NBA title. According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, the Cavaliers have broken yet another NBA record.
The Cavaliers set an NBA record by becoming the first team to have back-to-back regular-season games with 20 3-pointers, according to Elias Sports Bureau research.
With the pace that the Cavaliers are playing from beyond the arc, this comes as no surprise. Remember, they are just a couple of days removed from breaking the record for most 3-pointers made to start a season through the first 10 games. This included notching double-figure totals in made 3-pointers in each contest, which was also a record in itself.
Cleveland is playing at an all-time high with each of their primary contributors leading the way. Kyrie Irving is averaging is a career-high 23.8 points while Kevin Love is in the midst of a rebirth campaign, which already includes setting the NBA record with 34 points in the first quarter. On top of that, LeBron James is playing at an even higher level currently averaging his best overall numbers of his career with 9.5 assists, 8.5 rebounds, and 23.5 points. Simply put, Cleveland clearly looks like the team to beat.
