Cleveland Finally Gets Their Own "The Shot"

Cleveland sports fans, as we know, have had a hard time over the past four decades. No titles to speak of and some of the most heartbreaking dismissals in postseason history.

They've watched John Elway perform "The Drive" on them in the AFC Championship game. They've also watched the very next year "The Fumble" by Earnest Byner. They've had "The Blown Save" in Game 7 of the 1997 World Series. And they famously have "The Shot" by Michael Jordan that happened just 20 years ago which, some Cavs fans believe, ended any possible run at their own dynasty.

But the Cleveland fans got theirs last night. LeBron's amazing three from the top of the arc all but saved the Cavs championship thoughts. If it rimmed out, the Cavs would be down 0-2 to the Magic. That meant that Cleveland would have to win 4 of the remaining 5 games with three of them being played in Disneytown.

There ya go Cavs fans!
