[Cavs] Victory Monday!

Mondays always suck, but at least it’s a shorter week with the holidays.

The first sip

The Cavs will look to get revenge on the Atlanta Hawks tonight. The Hawks have had a good start to the season as they’ve also jumped out to a 10-6 record.

Atlanta is coming off a dramatic overtime win as they beat the Toronto Raptors with a last second layup from AJ Griffin after poor late game execution from the Raptors.

Young is heating up after his slow start to the season. The Hawks have been able to survive this due to the chemistry between Young and Dejounte Murray. Atlanta is outscoring opponents by 8.7 points per 100 possessions when the duo shares the floor with a 118.3 offensive rating and a 109.6 defensive rating.

It’ll be fun to see these two backcourts square off.
