If the Cavs would have lost to Atlanta last night, no one would have said anything because they knew that the new players that came in multiple trades on Thursday could not play until they pass physicals, Larry Nance, Jr., Jordan Clarkson from the Lakers; George Hill from the Kings and Rodney Hood from Utah.

Those players were in Atlanta and on the bench last night but not dressed.

The Cavs did win the game regardless with only seven regular players available, 123-107.

Those players were LeBron James, J.R. Smith, Kyle Korver, Jose Calderon, Cedi Osman, Jeff Green and Tristan Thompson.

Leading the way last night was Korver with a season-high 30 points on 7 of 13 from 3-point land. James had a triple-double with 22 points, 12 rebounds and 17 assists. The 65th time he has accomplished it in his career. Green contributed 24 and Osman, who has been pushing for playing time all season, had a career-high 16 points, six rebounds and five assists.

To fill out the bench, the team added from their D-League team at Canton, Ante Žižić, John Holland, London Perrantes.

The Cavaliers took control of the game early and never let up.

They outscored the Hawks 26-18 on fast breaks, 48-34 in the paint area and their three-man bench won 57-40.

Cleveland leads the Central Division with a record of 31-22 and has a 2-game lead over both Indiana and Milwaukee. They are third in the Eastern Conference standings behind Boston and Toronto.
