Know what was impressive? The 12-0 run that the Cavs went on during Sunday's game against the Celtics to eke out a win. Last year's Cleveland team probably would have folded up the tent looooooong before that game ended and accepted another inevitable loss. But this year's squad is so young that it's almost like they don't know any better. And with that mentality, the good times should continue to roll for Kyrie Irving & Co.—Chris Yuscavage
