#4 Cleveland Cavaliers - 21.3 points per game

Cavaliers did a lot in transition and gathered a majority of their fastbreak points trying to outrun their opponents who were unable to run back for defense.

Although they are fourth in terms of transition points per game, their efficiency in transition(60.8%) is more than the #1 team on this list. This is partly due to the abundance of Love's full-court touchdown heaves to LeBron on the other end of the floor throughout the season.

Though their season was turbulent (to say the least), the LeBron-led Cavs were devastatingly efficient when they got out and ran. The defending Eastern Conference Champs conjured an impressive 18.9 transition possessions per game during the 2017-18 regular season.

It's true that they can possibly never be a running and gunning team like the Warriors (more so now that LeBron has left), but if they can ratchet up their defense for the upcoming season, they do have the legs to outrun a majority of their rivals in transition.
