Smith has hit 3-pointers in bunches in every other game of his last five with an average of 6.0 3-pointers in wins over Orlando, Brooklyn, and Milwaukee. Following that pattern, perhaps Smith should be benched on Wednesday against Memphis (then back in the lineup against the Nets on Friday).

Smith scored 21 points (7-13 FG, 7-11 3Pt) and added four rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes against the Hornets Friday.

The 21 points - all on three-pointers - came on the night that Iman Shumpert (shoulder) returned to the lineup. It seems likely that the two ex-Knicks may be competing for a limited quantity of minutes, making Shumpert's return a potentially bad development for Smith's value. Smith has played very well since joining the Cavs, scoring at least 14 points in five of his last six games.

Smith has had some big 3-point games (20 long range shots in seven games) since joining the Cavaliers. His playing time could dip when Iman Shumpert (shoulder) returns, which is in the offing. Even when Shumpert gets back, Smith is a decent 3-pointer option.
