During the game, they sank 23 three-pointers and accomplished an incredible feat.

The Cavaliers were red hot from downtown and it made life very hard for the Kings, who landed 17 three-pointers on 44 attempts.
This was just one of the Cavaliers’ many weapons, as their field goal percentage was 58% for the entire game.
It was a strong win for Cleveland, who have won 14 of their last 15 games and are now the second-best team in the East with a 32-16 record.
They have been on an absolute roll lately and have been experiencing a lot of great output from every part of the court.
The good news might keep coming for the Cavaliers because they are next set to face off against the Washington Wizards, one of the worst teams in the league.
They will then battle the Brooklyn Nets, Toronto Raptors, and Philadelphia 76ers.
The Cavaliers have improved just about every aspect of their game over the last few months, including their three-point shooting.
It was a major part of their win on Monday and it could continue to help them out a lot in the weeks and months ahead.
