On the Edge of Seven(teen)


They might not be just like the white-winged dove, but the Cavaliers are alive, and on the edge of Game 7.

LeBron James still doesn’t seem to have his shooting touch, but he did manage to score 32 points to go along with his 12 rebounds and 6 assists, giving the Cavs a HUGE win, and keeping the Celtics winless on the road this postseason.

Now, Game 7 is set for Sunday, and part of me really wants to go. How often do you get to see your favorite team play a Game 7 in person? However, I’d rather not see them lose, in Boston, again, and that seems to be the most likely scenario (while I am a huge LeBron apologist, and a Cavs fan by proxy, I am also a realist). So instead I’ll be watching on TV -- probably in seclusion from people for as much of the game as possible.

For some reason, there are no NBA games on Saturday, and the Western Conference Game 7 schedule isn’t until Monday, which means the Cavs and Celtics will be the next game played, which means it’ll get lots of love on Saturday.

That also means this incredibly cool fact will get mentioned over and over again -- the only other time these two teams played a Game 7 was EXACTLY 12 years ago Saturday. May 17, 1992 -- Cleveland beat Boston in what would turn out to be Larry Bird’s final NBA game. Not bad, Cavaliers, not bad at all.
