The Cleveland Cavaliers turned around their season with two trades that brought Timofey Mozgov, J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert to their team.
"He is so excited about the talent on this team," said Brian Windhorst. "He loves playing with Mozgov. He loves J.R. Smith. He was the guy who pushed for that trade. The Cavs were trying to get Shumpert; that's what the conversations were and of course the Knicks were saying 'we'll give you Shumpert, but you have to take J.R.' They went to LeBron and he said 'No, you get J.R. and if you get Shumpert with him that's great.' He, I think, really loves their top-7."
Smith has a .563 True Shooting Percentage since coming to the Cavaliers after posting a .487 mark with the New York Knicks.
