Scouts: Cavs vs. Pistons Game 5
Cavaliers offense: If Richard Hamilton is going to guard LeBron James, expect James to go right at him. Hamilton is not strong enough to use his body against him. The Cavs should run their offense through LeBron, especially if Detroit isn't going to trap him when he brings the ball up the court. Cleveland is having a lot of success with a 1-4 spread with James at the top, out past the 3-point line. The rotation of picks by either Anderson Varejao or Donyell Marshall have been successful. This allows for three options: a drive by James, a roll by Varejao, or a jumper by Marshall.
