It's sort of the second match point for Golden State tonight in Game 5 of the NBA Finals (7 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4).

The Warriors had a chance to complete a sweep of the best-of-seen series in Cleveland on Friday, but the Cavaliers lead the best-of-seven series 3-1, but the Cavaliers breezed to a 137-116 win to stay alive.

And the Warriors are back home for Game 5.

No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win the NBA Finals. But then no team had ever come back from a 3-1 deficit until Cleveland did it against Golden State last year.

No, I don't think the Cavs are going to win this series. But then I didn't think that, down 3-1, they had a shot last year, either. Proving that what I know about the NBA isn't much.
