The Cavaliers' 3-point prowess
NBA 

Cleveland went an absurd 18-of-27 from beyond the arc in the first half of Game 2. Earlier today, Tom Penn broke down how Cleveland's shooting could be the answer if it faces Golden State.

This is not a mistake: Cavaliers have drilled 18-of-27 three-pointers and lead the Hawks 74-38 at halftime. J.R. Smith has made 6-of-10 treys alone. Meanwhile, Hawks are shooting a dreadful 2-of-11 from behind the arc. Game 3 cannot come fast enough for the Hawks, who desperately need to regroup in Atlanta.

The Cavs have 17 made 3s and are up by 35 ... In the second quarter. Nobody's looked this good at The Q since the Warriors mopped the floor with the Cavs in January.

Cleveland's 15 first-half 3-pointers (and counting) are tied for ninth most ever in a full playoff game, per Basketball-Reference.com.

Cavs shooting 48.7% overall and the three-point shooting is at 68.4% (13-19). And seriously, this is them cooling off a bit. Cleveland leads 56-32 with five minutes left in second.

With his last 3-pointer, LeBron James passed Tim Duncan for 5th all-time in playoff scoring.

It's a three-point party for the Cavs, who buried 10-of-14 treys and are up 43-23. Hawks in serious trouble with under 10 minutes to play in second quarter.

J.R. Smith makes a difficult off-balanced three with 3.9 seconds left and then Paul Millsap banked in a heave from near halfcourt but it did not beat the buzzer. Cavs up 35-20 after first quarter.

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

The Hawks' defense is having all sorts of problems with the Cavaliers' penetration into paint. That's when Atlanta's defense breaks down, leaving one and sometimes two Cavs open behind the arc. Cleveland made 7-of-its-first-9 three-pointers to take a 30-16 lead.

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

LeBron James fired a sick one-handed, left-handed pass that was an absolute laser to a cutting Kyrie Irving like it was a slant pass thrown ahead of the receiver. The result was Irving finding Kevin Love for a corner three. Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson, who is in attendance at Game 2 here, may wanna try out LeBron at quarterback.

I'm intrigued by this new world where the Cavaliers take and make more 3s than anyone else in the NBA.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Raptors G DeMar DeRozan is shooting 37-for-133 in contested shots during the playoffs (27.8 percent) and 16-for-27 on uncontested shots (59.3 percent). To be fair, DeRozan has had to carry more of the offensive load with Kyle Lowry struggling with his shot. Toronto may need to diversify its offense more, but that's probably easier said than done at this stage.
