Cleveland Cavaliers players were held up at the airport trying to enter Canada

The Cleveland Cavaliers are on a roll in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The number one seed are just two games away from booking their place in the Finals after a 10-0 run that has seen them sweep the Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks, and hold a 2-0 advantage over the Toronto Raptors. 

Maybe the Cavs' dominant position had something to do with their inability to enter Canada yesterday as they were held at the airport (probably not).

Richard Jefferson's Snapchat has become a source of great entertainment throughout the postseason and saw the birth of the Cavaliers' new mascot Lil' Kev. 

The Small Forward continues to give his social media following the inside scoop on the Cavs' journey to a potential championship ring, and that story included their inability to pass through customs. 

Jefferson recorded himself, J.R. Smith, LeBron James, and Canadian native Tristan Thompson sitting on the steps leading to the aircraft waiting for confirmation they could cross the border. 

It was a minor inconvenience as they eventually made their way through passport control and one that is unlikely to affect the Cavs at all as they look to reach the Finals without dropping a single game. 

The Raptors have a huge task on their hands but can go about restoring some pride with a big performance in game three. However, LeBron and co, mean business, and this could be a short series.
