The Cleveland Cavaliers have seemingly turned back the clock as they are currently one of the best teams in the NBA in the 2023-24 season.
Sure, fans had gotten used to the Cavaliers dominating their opponents when LeBron James was the primary superstar on the team, but it’s arguably the first time since James’ departure in 2018 that the Cavs are overwhelming their opponents.
Speaking of which, the Cavaliers have truly hit their stride over the last 15 games or so this season.
The argument was supported via a recent tweet by StatMuse on Twitter, which showed that the Cavaliers have dominated the NBA over the last 15 games.

As per the above-attached tweet, the Cavaliers rank first in defensive rating, eighth in offensive rating, and first in net rating over the last 15 games this season.
In simple terms, the Cavs are simply not allowing their opponents to score on them while doing the same efficiently.
It’s no surprise that the Cavaliers have attained the best record in the league over their dominant stretch.
The Cavaliers are currently on an eight-game winning streak and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
The organization currently flaunts a sensational 26-15 record and holds the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference.
While the Cavaliers are currently enjoying great success this season, there are still many games left in the regular season.
But as things stand right now, the Cavaliers could very well turn out to be the dark horse candidates to represent the Eastern Conference in the 2024 NBA Finals.
