The Cleveland Cavaliers are under-manned at the moment. Injuries to Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving have the Cavs relying on a short bench in the NBA Finals. What if the secret to their success could be found just across Lake Erie?

Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera and his teammates played a game of two-on-two in the clubhouse on Tuesday and Cabrera posted the footage to Instagram, just in case the Cavs want to add a 6'4", 240-pound power forward. 

With Ian Kinsler playing point guard, Cabrera showed off a nice drop step and executed a fundamentally-sound layup over Tom Gorzelanny.

The Cavs won't need any help if LeBron keeps playing like he has, though.
