The Cleveland Cavaliers are currently 2-0 in Las Vegas Summer League action, as they defeated the Brooklyn Nets in a close contest on Friday, and handled the Toronto Raptors on Sunday. The score was 99-76, as Cleveland was in command of the game from the opening tip against Toronto. Cleveland had the lead from the first bucket, and didn’t look back.

Toronto is one of three teams that are 0-2, including the New York Knicks and Charlotte Hornets. Cleveland, on the other hand, is one of four teams that are 2-0 in the Summer League, including the Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Houston Rockets.

At face value, it was just a poor shooting performance for Toronto, which really hurt their chances to get the win. The Raptors shot 34.6 percent from the field and 16.1 percent from three-point range. Cleveland shot 46.5 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from distance, pretty solid shooting splits.

This is a great win for Cleveland, as they now go into the next game against the Memphis Grizzlies with a lot of momentum, and have a chance to be 3-0 with a victory on Monday.

Cleveland’s Summer League team has really exceeded expectations, as they look to be a well-oiled machine, and have both great offense and defense. A Summer League title is definitely a possiblity at this point for the Wine and Gold.

There are many points of interest in this last game, especially for the Cavaliers. There were many bright spots, but as there always is, there were some disappointments, as well.

Here are two key takeaways from the Cavs’ win on Sunday over the Raptors.
