New, comments

LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyle Korver lead the way.

NBA: Atlanta Hawks at Cleveland Cavaliers David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Here are your player grades from the Cleveland Cavaliers win over the Atlanta Hawks.

LeBron James: A+

James tied his single-game mark for assists with 17. The King also shot 85 percent from the field. That’s deserving of a perfect grade.

Kyle Korver: A

Fourth Korver was Every Korver, hitting 6-of-9 from beyond the arc.

Jae Crowder: A

When Crowder scores 10 or more points, Cleveland is undefeated this season. He had 13 tonight.

J.R. Smith: A-

Smith was one away from his career-high in assists. Point Swish deserves an A- just for his passing tonight.

Jose Calderon: A-

4-of-5 from three-point range? Come on down, Jose Calderon!

Jeff Green: A-

Green continues his bench assault and had 17 points, but was a minus-8 for the game.

Kevin Love: B+

A hot first quarter that fizzled out during the other three quarters. 17 points and 12 rebounds is still deserving of a high grade though.

Channing Frye: B-

The only reserve to be in positive plus/minus requires some praise, right?

Cedi Osman: C

Osman continues to grow as a pest defensively, but his stroke from distance hasn’t arrived yet.

Tristan Thompson: C

First appearance since his injury and his box score has zero’s across the board in six minutes of play.
