Utah feels tested and ready for Cavaliers defense

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

Having passed a test against one tough defense, the Utah Jazz face another Sunday when they visit the Cleveland Cavaliers.

More concerning to Utah is that they gave up 30 or more points each of the final three quarters against Boston – including 41 in the third quarter. Over its last four games, Cleveland has allowed just 93.5 points per game, and has held its last 13 opponents under 40% shooting from 3-point range, the longest active streak in the NBA.

Cleveland has beaten its last four opponents in emphatic fashion as well, with winning margins of 13 over Orlando, 18 over Dallas, 26 over Miami, and 15 over Washington.

“These weren’t easy teams. These weren’t necessarily teams that are not making the playoffs,” forward Jarrett Allen said, who tallied 28 points and 13 rebounds against the Wizards for his sixth straight double-double.
