How are the Cavs just three wins away from snapping a half-century long title-less streak for Cleveland pro sports with not just one All-Star-caliber player in Irving, but a second in Kevin Love, sidelined with injuries? Because as much as this Cavs team is defined by LeBron James’ brilliance, it has also taken on the persona of (Matthew) Dellavedova: Impossible to dismiss no matter how challenging the circumstances might be.

“Obviously he’s a guy that’s been counted out his whole life,” James said after having his 39 points, 16 rebounds and 11 assists not go to waste in large part because of one late offensive rebound followed by two free throws by Dellavedova. “Probably people have been telling him he’s too small, he’s not fast enough, can’t shoot it enough, can’t handle it enough and he’s beat the odds so many times.”
