The Cavaliers' 3-point prowess

Cleveland went an absurd 18-of-27 from beyond the arc in the first half of Game 2. Earlier today, Tom Penn broke down how Cleveland's shooting could be the answer if it faces Golden State.

Meanwhile, Hawks are shooting a dreadful 2-of-11 from behind the arc. Game 3 cannot come fast enough for the Hawks, who desperately need to regroup in Atlanta.
