Idk if this is something the Cavs have actually practiced, however it’s a really, really good setup for a full-court appearance. Those shots are constantly gon na be really low-percentage, however this looked practiced, like the Cavs understand”if nobody is protecting the inbounder, pass it right back.”< a href=" https://t.co/iU77pMz4ne "> https://t.co/iU77pMz4ne
