As we head into the final minutes, let me just note that there’s something a bit odd about a rivalry that’s this intense — driven by three-straight first-round playoff matchups — between teams that are basically unimpressive. I mean, it would be a genuinely shocking Black Swan event if either of these squads won a championship. Probably nobody outside of DC or Cleveland really cares about this matchup, but we care a lot.
