Post-Game Recap

3 Key Factors Around the Victory

1 – Assists

The Cavs did a much better job passing the ball tonight, which allowed them to score more points on offense. Cleveland also totaled 41 assists on the night.

2 – Bench points

Cleveland’s bench also showed up in a big way, scoring 45 points in the game, led by Georges Niang, 17, including five three-pointers. 

3 – Three-point shooting

Cleveland started slow but ended with 17 out of 41 from the floor from deep. 

Game Summary

In Monday night’s game, the Cleveland Cavaliers redeemed themselves from a previous loss against Miami with a convincing 115-92 victory over the Charlotte Hornets. Evan Mobley showcased his prowess with 17 points, while Jarrett Allen contributed 17 points and 13 rebounds. Mobley, back for his second game after recovering from an ankle injury, impressively tallied eight assists and seven rebounds in just 25 minutes.

Following a demoralizing defeat to the Heat, where they trailed by as much as 45 points, the Cavaliers seemed rejuvenated against the struggling Hornets. Georges Niang’s five 3-pointers and 17 points further bolstered Cleveland’s performance. Despite missing key players like Donovan Mitchell, sidelined with a broken nose and bruised knee, and Max Strus and Dean Wade due to injuries, the Cavaliers found their rhythm.

Mobley’s third-quarter performance helped Cleveland maintain their lead, while timely 3-pointers from Sam Merrill provided breathing room in the fourth quarter. However, Marcus Morris Sr.’s ejection in the second quarter added some drama to the game.

With injuries plaguing their lineup, Cavs coach J.B. Bickerstaff remains optimistic about the team’s cohesion before the playoffs but acknowledges the urgency in getting key players back on the court.
