The city of Cleveland was still riding the high of last season’s championship as this year’s NBA Finals began, but that euphoric state came crashing down by the time it was all said and done.
After going down three games to none, the Cavaliers managed to put on a record breaking shooting clinic in Game 4, but it wasn’t enough to get them through Game 5, as the Warriors reigned supreme and took home the title for the second time in three seasons.
According to Men’s Health, people in Cleveland decided to take matters into their own hands to deal with the disappointing loss. Adult film site Pornhub shared statistics showing a spike in traffic to their site from the Cleveland area between midnight and 1 a.m., which was right around the time Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Kevin Durant were hooting and hollering on national TV. The data showed an increase of 28 percent during the previously mentioned window of time.
The game began to get out of hand with about six minutes remaining in the second quarter, but shortly thereafter is when the traffic from the Cleveland area began to soar. All things considered, a post-game visit to Pornhub was probably the safest way to deal with defeat.
