The Cavs’ playmaking should be vastly improved next season

At first glance, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been far from an exceptional passing team in the 2019-20 season.

Going into the current NBA season’s suspension in relation to preventing further spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic of which Utah Jazz center tested positive for, then leading to the league’s suspension (and you can view other reported updates here), the Cavs placed just 24th and 25th in the league in assists and then potential assists per game on the year. That was noted by Second Spectrum’s passing tracking data.

What has been really encouraging to me, though, is how the Cavaliers have gotten better in terms of passing/playmaking for others as the year’s progressed.
