Amico: Five random dribbles on the Cavs
Quick random dribbles on the Cavaliers, who continue to practice and await their next opponent.
1. The Cavs are the most drama-free team in the playoffs. Think about that -- then think about how things sometimes went and were occasionally reported during the regular season.
2. Yes, the Spurs also swept their first-round series (vs. the Grizzlies) and remain free of major injury. But the Spurs don't receive the type of scrutiny LeBron James and the Cavs can get for so much as a simple sneeze. The Cavs have to work harder than any other team not to be noticed.
3. In the meantime, the Celtics, Heat, Raptors, Pacers, Hornets and Heat can't seem to get much of an edge (although the Hornets put together a nice road win over the Heat on Wednesday). The Cavs are just fine with all that. They get the winner of the Hawks-Celtics series Monday, and those two continue to beat on each other.
