That might soon be a thing of the past, as least as soon as the Cavs and Atlanta Hawks finish their trade with wholesale NBA jerseys for sharpshooting guard Kyle Korver. Any open perimeter looks remaining the Cavs’ offense are about to get swished from one of the greatest three-point shooters to ever play the game.

It’s easy to imagine Korver slotting into the Cavaliers’ full-throttle offense, floating around the perimeter and being the beneficiary of kick-out passes from James and Irving. When asked to explain how Korver might blend into Cleveland’s offense, Cavs big man Channing Frye, third in the NBA in three point shooting percentage (45.9 percent) opened his eyes wide and silently stared back at the questioner for several seconds, almost as though he was acting out an emoji that suggested the answer to the question was obvious. Once his words returned, Frye said that when he heard about the Korver addition, he immediately pictured how it would work.
“I was ecstatic, because now it’s like, OK, who are you gonna stick to?” Frye said. “We have three or four guys who go downhill, so there’ll be no more double teams. I mean, that paint is gonna be wide open.”
“It’ll be good for our team,” James told reporters earlier Friday. While James has been vocal about his desire for the Cavs to add point guard depth, he also understands the value of Korver. “It adds another dynamic piece to our team. Hell of a sharpshooter and just a great guy. Great professional, as you’ve seen over his career, so once he gets here, we’ll be happy to have him.”
As Frye noted, Korver possesses an ability rare in the NBA, where he can create space for his teammates just by being on the court.
“I think [Korver] and JJ Redick, those are the only two guys off the top of my head that I know that can get a double team without the ball,” Frye said. “Any time one of those guys comes off a screen, if you’re not out, it’s a catch and it’s up, even if you’re right behind him. So, hopefully he gets used to getting a lot of looks, and he keeps shooting that thing.”

Not that the Cavs have had any problems shooting that thing this season. As it stands now, the Cavs already have two of the NBA’s top 20 three-point shooters by percentage in Frye and Irving (41.5 percent), with Love just behind (39.9%) and the injured J.R. Smith a career 37.5% shooter. As a team, the Cavs make threes at a 38.8 percent rate, third only to the San Antonio Spurs (41.4%) and Toronto Raptors (38.9%). The Cavs attempt 33 threes a game, behind just the freewheeling Houston Rockets.
“People think we’re a three-point shooting team,” Frye said, “but I think we just shoot a good percentage, and if you look at us, we really live in that paint, attacking that rack, going to the hole. And then when people take that away, we have guys who are OK with shooting 7, 8, 9, 10 threes a game.”
On Dec. 4, 2013, the Spurs were warming up, around 45 minutes before their game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, when the lights went out in parts of the arena and smoke began coming out of vents in the upper deck. The court quickly became cloudy and players and coaches were rushed outside the arena.
The game was rescheduled and played at Minnesota.
“It was nobody’s fault but it was kind of depressing for cheap jerseys of everybody so hopefully this time we get it done and put on a show for everybody”, Popovich said.
The Spurs have been doing that in the NBA recently. On Thursday night, they beatthe Los Angeles Lakers 134-94 for their largest margin of victory this season. The game was so lopsided that the starters didn’t play in the fourth quarter and every player on the roster scored at least two points.
“All of our players will not score every night, I can promise you that”, Popovich said.
San Antonio arrives to Mexico boasting a 31-8 record, the second-best mark in the NBA just behind the Golden State Warriors (34-6).
The game against the Suns will be the fifth regular season game played in Mexico. Phoenix also played in Mexico City on Thursday night, falling 113-108 to the Dallas Mavericks.
