The Cavaliers recently suffered a loss to the Magic off a game-winning shot by Evan Fournier with 1.8 on the game clock after the Cavs built a fourth quarter lead.

It gave the Cavs their third-straight loss and more importantly, a teachable moment.

After a recent Cleveland practice, Larry Nance Jr. was questioned about the loss to Orlando and he brought up the San Antonio Spurs' experience at handling pressure moments on the court.

"Do the Spurs make that same mistake? I don't think so. They just have more experience."

The Spurs found themselves losing to the Magic recently but found a way to claw back into the game in the final period only to come up short.

But outside of that loss, the Spurs boast a roster of NBA veterans who have won titles and have made deep playoff pushes in their career. This makes for a group of players who have seen it all and been through every scenario on the court.
