INDEPENDENCE, Ohio They’ve survived amid turmoil for months, their season morphing into the NBA’s most compelling reality show — or, as some have called it, spectacle. The must-watch Cleveland Cavaliers have been hardened by the nonstop drama around them. So it’s not a surprise they’re calm despite trailing the Boston Celtics 2-0 in the Eastern Conference finals. “We know what it takes,” coach Tyronn Lue said. “We’re down 0-2.
