CJ Miles has first pretty good game of season
Miles finally found an available barber on Wednesday, then he responded with his best game of the season: 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting and three rebounds. He even made 3-of-4 3-pointers after beginning the night shooting 22 percent (6-of-27) on 3s.
“I’ll roll with it,” Miles said of his new ’do and his new-found game. “If that’s what it is, I’ll go bald-headed next time.”
Miles’ erratic play had Cavs fans ripping their hair out most of the season. His woeful shooting and erratic defense quickly eliminated him from coach Byron Scott’s rotation. But injuries to Kyrie Irving and Daniel Gibson forced Scott to turn back to Miles, and this time Miles didn’t disappoint.
Too often, Miles has come into games cold and started hoisting shots from the outside. Defenses were well aware of Miles’ early-season struggles and were happy to leave him alone with open looks.
