The Cavaliers have been the most lethal team in the NBA in these playoffs (and yes, that includes our old friends out in Oakland), especially beyond the arc, throwing down 16.8 three-pointers per game on 46.2% shooting. The Golden State Warriors were second with 12.2/game. We’ll deal with the Warriors later. Right now, it’s up to the Cavs to just keep shooting. If they continue to bury treys at a historic rate, the Raptors will obviously have no shot.

Of course, it helps to have the most physical and talented small forward in the game keeping defenses off balance. LeBron can drive to the hoop at will, and when he’d rather dish than dunk, kick it out to a teammate at the arc. That’s been the story in these
playoffs, and his teammates, including Kyrie, Love, J.R., Frye, Jefferson, and Delly…have all come through.
