The Cleveland Cavaliers are up 2-1 on the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, and a lot of people are trying to figure out how. Grit? Toughness? Determination? Witchcraft?
Any one of those could probably explain how this is happening in some way or another. The Warriors are supposed to be blitzing the Cavs with an endless array of three-pointers. A hobbled Cleveland team is supposed to be giving a “God bless ‘em, they’re trying” effort while getting run off the court.
However, the Cavs and their rag-tag band made up of LeBron James and a bunch of guys who are playing mainly just because they’re actually physically able to do so are within two games of achieving the unthinkable.
