There are many things that make this Cleveland Cavaliers team special.
Their head coach, JB Bickerstaff, is very tuned into what he wants to achieve and what is possible, stars like Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland are leading the team with energy and speed, and veteran players like Kevin Love are bringing a lot of knowledge and experience.
But no one should ever forget just how great the team’s frontcourt is.
The pairing of Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley was a stroke of genius that has been working super well.

Allen opened up about it recently, stating how both he and Mobley have their own respective skills and expertise.
However, when they come together, they create something truly special and hard to slow down or get past.
Allen has been a huge benefit to the team since he found a home there after his time with the Brooklyn Nets came to an end.
Allen was never given room to flourish and thrive in Brooklyn but he has been valued by Cavs since day one.
As for Mobley, he was one of last season’s most remarkable rookies and has remained very consistent since then.
Together, these guys are both, smart, and dominant in the paint and the perimeter.
This is the sort of frontcourt that can defend and score as well.
Throwing Love into the mix off the bench makes this frontcourt even more menacing to just about every other team in the league.
Of course, every good team needs both a front and backcourt.
Luckily the Cavs are able to rely on Mitchell and Garland to run their offense and toss the ball to Allen and Mobley.
The team is well-rounded and strong no matter what side of the court they are on.
