Max Strus offered glimpses of the shooting the Cavaliers needed but struggled to maintain consistency throughout the season, falling short of expectations as the team's three-point specialist.

By the Numbers
  • Strus shot 34.7% from three and 40.8% from the field in the playoffs.
  • In May, he shot 40% from three (16-40).
  • The Cavaliers hit the 100-point threshold only four times in 12 postseason games.
Yes, But

While Strus showed versatility in rebounding and playmaking, his inconsistent shooting, especially in the playoffs, was a significant drawback.

State of Play
  • Strus faced the challenge of guarding the opponents' best wing players, impacting his energy and offensive performance.
  • The Cavaliers struggled with poor shooting and injuries in the postseason, hindering their offensive effectiveness.
What's Next

If Strus can rediscover his Miami form, he could significantly enhance the Cavaliers' roster and contribute more consistently to the team's offensive success.

Bottom Line

Max Strus's potential as a valuable player for the Cavaliers shines through despite his shooting inconsistencies, emphasizing the need for more players with his diverse skill set in the team's lineup.
