We break down the Cleveland Cavaliers Game 5 Win with Ben Axelrod

Ben Axelrod of Bleacher Report joins the podcast to discuss the Cleveland Cavaliers' Game 5 victory and also preview a matchup in Game 6 with a returning Draymond Green.

The Cleveland Cavaliers had their backs against the wall and the benefit of no Draymond Green. They made some history thanks to heroics by both LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. We grabbed Bleacher Report's Ben Axelrod to break it all down, from the action itself to how LeBron is covered, and the mixed standards that fans use to judge him.
