Guard Playing Leading Cavs

Donovan Mitchell and Caris LeVert both poured in 41 points in the Cleveland overtime win against the Boston Celtics in their most recent game. After that win, Mitchell said, “For us to have the mental fortitude this early as a younger team that’s honestly trying to get to where the Celtics were last year and continue to build, that says a lot about our character without our elite guard, too.”
Cleveland does have to find a way to get more stops on the defensive end of the floor, and they will be dealing with a Knicks team that is playing with confidence.
