It’s the first Friday of December! Let’s get right into it.

The first sip

You already know this, but this year’s Cavaliers team is the best in years. They’re doing things we haven’t seen in over half a decade:

The young Cavaliers haven’t been on the right end of many blowouts until now. And make no mistake: these are blowouts. They held 30-point leads against the Heat and Mavericks and stamped out any mini runs until garbage time. In Miami, they jumped on a flat team early and held their ground the rest of the way. The Cavs aren’t just winning—they’re taking care of business the way good teams do.
