The Cavs did the impossible

The Cleveland Cavaliers squeaked past Washington. The game I went to, I was shaking my head as we left thinking they just weren't consistent enough to really go the distance.

So we drop two games in unholy fashion against Detroit, and I figured it was over. The press and TV networks thought so as well. But they won two at home, and there was hope. Then tonight, they get up by 10 in Detroit, then tie, but pull it out. They're up 3-2.

So now it feels like college basketball, where crazy shit happens that you didn't expect. I thought this would be a short series and I'd lose interest. If we can win and move on to Miami, that doesn't seem impossible. We were 1-2 with them during the regular season.

Actually, the Cavs split the season series with the Heat.

Like I told you before, it's the NBA, they're professionals. Every team, in every game, has a run in them. This isnt college basketball.
Closeout games are the hardest to play out especially against a team like Detroit. The Pistons are going to come out blazing.

Please, most of these assholes in the NBA haven't acted like professionals in ten years.

Count me in as one of those who felt the the Detroit vs. Cavs series wasn't going to be a series at all.

I'm sure as heck watching the game tonight, it would be amazing if the Cavs took 4 in a row from Detroit. At this point its very possible since Detroit is mentally on the ropes.

They're paid to play basketball, not to be your hero.
