Cleveland started off the season as one of the best three-point shooting teams in the league. Sometimes teams start off hot but aren't able to stay consistent throughout the year. This isn't the case for the Cavaliers.
The Cavs currently hold the second-best three-point percentage in the NBA. They are knocking down 39.6 percent of their shots from behind the arc. They could easily move into the lead with one game too.
The Denver Nuggets lead the way with a 40.3 three-point percentage. One fantastic shooting night from Cleveland and a poor one from Denver could easily see these two teams swap positions.
The Cavs are also one of the best teams from corner threes as well. They are knocking down 44.2 percent of their threes from that zone which is the third-best in the NBA.
One of the reasons that they have such a great three-point percentage is that they have six significant rotation players hitting over 40 percent of their threes:
- Dean Wade - .500
- Darius Garland - .439
- Donovan Mitchell - .410
- Cedi Osman - .406
- Kevin Love - .404
- Lamar Stevens - .400
As good as the Cavs are at shooting threes, they also don't rely on the long ball either. They rank 22nd in three-point attempts per game. Despite this, they've still been able to find success are an efficient shooting team without launching 50 threes a night.
