The first sip
Is there a team in the league looking forward to All-Star weekend more than the Cavs?
Put aside that the Cavs have three representatives across the All-Star and Rising Stars games. Darius Garland missed two of those three games with a back injury, and without him, the Cavs’ offense was largely nonexistent.
This isn’t DEFCON 1 by any stretch, but consider that the Cavs featured a barren rotation-particularly in the backcourt-with Garland and Ricky Rubio active. The Cavs have blitzed past even the wildest expectations already.
