"They just made more plays than we did," Cleveland coach J.B. Bickerstaff stated. "I give them credit, that's who they are. They're a team that plays the entire 48, no matter what's happening. As a basketball fan, it's fun to watch."

They are scoring 111.3 points per game, 26th in the league. They hold an offensive rating of 114.2, 10th in the NBA.
