After the game, the Cavaliers said their success started in practice. Coach Dave Leitao said, “We did a much better overall job on both ends, playing together like we’re supposed to play, and the score reflected that. I’ve been preaching the last few weeks about getting better and about getting rid of the stuff that’s not good for our team and continue to grow, and the last couple of days in practice really showed it.”
