Analysis: Blatt, Cavs shift gears, begin putting opponents in rearview mirror

CLEVELAND – For the first time this year, you could really smell the flavors coming together in what the coach David Blatt and the Cleveland Cavaliers hope is a championship dish. The aroma of a full roster has permeated their present seven- game win streak, highlighted by three straight games with 120+ points against playoff teams like the Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards.

The wins were keyed by the return mid-December of fireplug defensive wing Iman Shumpert and a week or so later of Kyrie Irving. After nine games back, the minutes-restriction is coming off Irving, who celebrated by scoring 25 and 32 in the two games while making more than 60% of his shots against the Raptors and Wizards. Yeah, he looks back.
