Mark Johnson Cavs

It’s not my position to come out on the side of criticizing NBA referees in the playoffs as being one-sided. I do think they were pretty bad at their job in Game 2 of the 2015 NBA Finals, but I tend to think it was bad across the board mostly. I tend to side with

I’ve been pretty obsessed with the fact that the Cleveland Cavaliers are underdogs.
