Believe it or not, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ long and exhausting season could come to a close as early as tonight night.
After another road loss to the Celtics Wednesday night by a score of 96-83, the Cavs find themselves trailing in the Eastern Conference Finals 3-2 with back-to-back elimination games coming this weekend.
