It takes a village to win an NBA title

Several things doomed the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday night, but none more importantly than LeBron James having little or no help. He's the best player in the world, but he can only score so much and defend one person at a time (of which he did very little of against the Warriors).

So with injuries knocking out two of the Cavaliers' best players, it was The LeBron Show and he ended up totally spent. The Cavs couldn't make free throws or three-pointers, the Warriors could and that was the difference.

Give credit to the Warriors. They tried to make any Cavalier not named LeBron beat them and Cleveland didn't have anyone step up.
