The Cleveland Cavaliers have now won three games in a row but Monday night’s victory might have been their most impressive yet.
Cleveland faced off against the Atlanta Hawks at home and it was a great game.
Atlanta’s impressive starting five was on hand and fighting hard but that wasn’t enough to overcome the Cavaliers, who walked away with a 114-102 victory.
Donovan Mitchell was a huge part of the win and his fingerprints were all over it.

Watching Mitchell play is always a joy and that was especially true on Monday, as he ducked, wove, and made his way to the basket with his incredible speed and wonderful handles that were impossible to slow.
Mitchell has always been a showman and he certainly was on Monday.
He is a player with a bag full of many tricks but the way that he can find a path to the basket and move like a magician against defenders is one of his best abilities.
When the game was over, Mitchell had 29 points and 9 assists.
It was just the latest good game for the former Utah Jazz guard.
Just a few nights ago, he put up 34 against a surprisingly strong Charlotte Hornets in another big Cleveland win.
They are building one of the strongest, most intimidating starting fives in the league.
Mitchell might be the team’s de facto leader but each of those guys is doing his part, along with a strong bench that has been stepping up too.
