MMPG: Team of the Week
Editor's note: Michael Lee is out of the country but decided we needed Monday Morning Point Guard this week - even if it gets to you in the afternoon. So here goes. Team of the Weak, Player of the Week and the FourCast to follow ...
The NBA's hottest team has been riding LeBron James to the top of the Central Division. The Cavaliers have won seven games in a row, with James scoring at least 38 points in four of those wins. James had 41 points in a 99-93 win against Milwaukee last Tuesday and 38 in a 105-93 win against Utah on Saturday. The Cavaliers defeated the red-hot Nuggets 110-99 on Thursday, with newly acquired point guard Mo Williams leading the way with 24 points. James didn't have a bad night -- 22 points, 11 assists and 8 rebounds.
Cleveland is unbeaten at home this season at 6-0, with four of those wins coming by at least 10 points. The surprising part about Cleveland's success is that once offensively-challenged team is averaging 101.1 points and has topped tripled digits in six of its past seven wins.
