It's pretty funny how many people don't realize what the Cavs are currently doing.

I’ve made more money betting the alternate lines the last 2 weeks than I ever could've hoped. And I’ll probably go -11.5 tomorrow. By almost every metric, they are the best team in the East. And I don’t think it’s crazy to actually believe that.

Cavs just keep on winning, beating Miami last night. Nice to see a somewhat rejuvenated K-Love with 23 points.

Curry breaks the record. Pretty cool scene at MSG.

What was the record?  I pay zero attention.

Passed Ray Allen for all time in made three pointers. And he did it 511 fewer games. I hated Curry when they played the Cavs in the finals. He was really aggravating to root against. But I like watching him more now that those days are over.

Can't stand Curry but that's a record I can't see ever being broken. He's still got a lot of hoops left in him and that record will continue to grow.

It will be broken. I honestly am surprised so many people think this is unbreakable.

unless you see the NBA going back to feeding centers and only shooting 5 3's a game... someone will break it.

Like just look at when Reggie retired. He was double ahead of Allen in 2nd. Yeah, no one playing now will pass Curry. But a guy will come into the league and make 6 threes a game for extended years. Just look at the trends. Dame, Harden, Durant, etc are all gonna pats Reggie before they retire…and he was SOOOO far ahead of his time based in this chart.

I’m sure it’ll be broken. But it’ll be a long time from now. 

I’ve always wondered if anyone would break Wilt’s record for most points in a game. Closest we’ve come is when Kobe had 81 and even that was fifteen years ago.

Cavs putting the THUMP on the Rockets, up 30 in the 2nd quarter.

They are curbstomping the bad teams that have the unfortunate pleasure of falling on the schedule during this incredible run.

If this continues, will be interesting to see if they are serious buyers at the trade deadline.

They will be buyers, not sure what constitutes as serious, though. If they want to go big, they have one of the best pieces to offer in Sexton. 

Every metric has them as the top team in the East and the adjust schedule record has them as around a 21-9 team vs 18-12. 

In other words, nothing on paper suggests that the on court results are “flukey” or should regress — other than maybe the margin of victories. There will be a let down, this type of play is impossible to sustain. But there really isn’t a reason they can get in and compete in the playoffs other than youth that hasn’t experienced it yet.

I've heard Okoro could be a piece added but with his recent play, likely not.
