Cavs Keys to Championship
- Updated: May 19, 2016
The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking like strong candidates to win the Larry O’Brien Trophy this year. They’re undefeated in this years playoffs and they have a good chance of staying that way all the way up to the NBA finals. Nothing in professional sports is easy, especially in the playoffs but the Cavs will have a favorable matchup whether they face the Heat or the Raptors. With that being said there are major keys that’ll lead to bringing a championship to the city of Cleveland.
- Stay healthy: You can’t prevent injuries from happening but they played a big factor in bringing the Cavs down during last years postseason. If the Cavs managed to stay healthy last season, many believed they would’ve taken Golden State to 7 games and maybe even won the NBA Finals. With Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love able to play throughout the playoffs with Lebron and the rest of the Cleve-Cav-Clan, they’re able to show how dominate they can be together. Having more than 8 players able to contribute this year will definitely do the Cavs good in the remainder of the postseason
- Three-Point Shooting: A contribution to the Cavaliers success this far has been their 3 point shooting. Kyrie, Kevin Love, Channing Frye, JR, Shump, and Richard Jefferson are all shooting around 50% from the 3 point line which has been key so far. The Cavs all together made 57 3’s in round 1 then hit 77 in the conference semis, a record setting 25 of which came in game 2. If the Cavs keep up their 3 point success their opponents might not be able to keep up.
- Have Fun: Human natures shows that the more someone enjoys doing something is probably because they’re good at doing it. The Cavs are having fun and you can see it on their faces on and off the court and as a result they’re unbeaten in this years playoffs. Cavs fans are finally starting to see the big 3 to gel together and build chemistry which also has to do with their success. If the Cavs just simpl continue to play their game they’ll be in good shape for the rest of the playoffs.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have a good chance of winning the NBA Championship this year as long as they can manage to stay healthy, stay efficient from the three-point line, and have fun. The fact that they’re building chemistry in the locker room plays a factor in all these keys to victory. If the Cavs keep it up the city will see their first major championship in years.
