Remember those days when the Cavaliers weren't going to lose before the NBA Finals? It looked like Cleveland had finally gotten back on track — can you get back on track after one loss? — last night against Orlando in the first half, but then it just about blew the game when Hedo Turkoglu swished a 15-foot runner with 1.0 seconds left.
Ballgame, Magic. We're headed to Orlando!
All of the sad, young, LeBron-loving men were on the verge of tears until... well, you know.
And that slow motion, black-and-white video was only topped in melodrama by the lede from the AP game story:
Michael Jordan no longer has the most famous buzzer-beater in Cleveland sports history.
The Shot has been topped.
LeBron James made one better.
But yeah, it was pretty cool. Amazing, even. And now we have a series.
Good Saturday morning. Big sports day today: NBA and NHL playoffs, MLB interleagues, Duke Lacrosse! Yeah, the intern's got the keys to this place today, and I'm taking it for a joyride. Buckle up for some hoodrat things. Here's to hoping nothing breaks.
