The Cavs continue to be one of the best three-point shooting teams in the NBA

Cleveland started the season as one of the top three-point shooting teams in the league. Sometimes teams start hot but are unable to remain consistent throughout the year. That’s not the case with the Cavaliers.

The Cavs currently hold the second-best three-point percentage in the NBA. They hit 39.6 percent of their shots from behind the arc. They could easily take a one game lead too.

The Denver Nuggets lead with 40.3 three-point percentage. On a fantastic night of shooting in Cleveland and a bad night in Denver, these two teams could easily switch positions.

To summarize the rest of the top five, the Boston Celtics are third in the NBA with 39.0 percent, the Phoenix Suns own 38.4 percent, and the Philadelphia 76ers have a three-point percentage of 38.3.

The Cavs are also one of the best teams going into the third turn. They throw 44.2 percent of their three-pointers from this zone, which is the third best in the NBA.

One of the reasons they have such a large three-point percentage is that they have six significant rotation players who hit over 40 percent of their three-pointers:

  • Dean Wade – 0.500
  • Darius garland – .439
  • Donovan Mitchell – .410
  • Cedi Osman – .406
  • kevin love – .404
  • Lamar Stevens – .400

As good as the Cavs are at three-pointers, they don’t rely on the long ball either. They rank 22nd in three-point attempts per game. Still, they’ve managed to be an efficient shooting team without starting 50 threes a night.
