The Cleveland Cavaliers have been doing incredibly well lately and that is due to several reasons, including the deep roster and strong assortment of bench players.
Dean Wade is one of the young stars who has been shining brightly, especially lately.
Mack Perry pointed out that Wade is 13-of-23 from beyond the three-point arc over his last four games.
This comes after a stretch of six games when he was just 2-of-10 from that distance.
Additionally, Wade is now completing 40% of his triples this season.
Dean Wade is 13/23 (56.5%) from distance over his last 4 games. This followed a stretch in which he went a combined 2/10 in the prior 6 games.

Wade is averaging 5.8 points and 4.5 rebounds so far this season and has a field goal percentage of 42.5% to go along with his 40% from the three-point line.
This is his fifth season with the Cavaliers but his biggest one yet.
Because of various injuries that keep popping up throughout the year, the team needs him now more than ever and Wade has been willing and eager to step up and help.
During the Cavaliers’ latest win over the Orlando Magic, Wade posted 9 points but each of those was from beyond the three-point line.
And in the game before that, Wade was 5-of-6 from that part of the court.
The Cavaliers have surprised a lot of people, especially lately, by how well they have been playing without some of their star players.
That is because Wade and others have come together, fought hard, and never given up on their goals.
There is still a lot of season left but the confidence that Wade is playing with right now might not go away.
That means that he could just be warming up.
