LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are back in the NBA Finals. Eight years have passed since the 22-year-old player led his team to the same achievement in 2007.
Last Tuesday night at Quicken Loans Arena, the Cavaliers overwhelmed the Hawks, 118-88 in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, finishing off a comfortable sweep.
Game 4 was hardly a game from the opening tip. Cleveland grabbed an early lead, took a 24-14 advantage late in the first quarter. Cavs continue cruising easy through the game with a 20-point lead by halftime, a 25-point lead in the third quarter, and a 30-plus point lead by the final period.
James Lebron, was unstoppable, scoring from the post, scoring at the rim and with his passing to the perimeter. He nearly averaged a triple double for the series.
He made a total of 23 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in Game 4 and for the four-game series, he averaged 30.1 points, 11 rebounds and 9.3 assists, clinching the franchise’s second Eastern Conference title.
Also, he will play in his fifth consecutive NBA Finals, joining of short list of former Boston Celtics who did it in the 1960s and he is the first non-Celtic to do it and first to do it with two different teams.
Cavaliers now have to wait for the Western Conference winner, between Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets. Warrios are favorite to win the series as they lead 3-1 over Houston. Nonetheless, Rockets last performance at Game 4, threats to extend the series.
In the meantime, Cavaliers’ fans have great reasons to celebrate as the Cavs can give Irving rest and treatment for almost a week before traveling again. Cleveland Cavs guard Kyrie Irving suffered a left knee tendinitis at Game 1.
He played 22 minutes, scored 16 points and looked like he is getting closer to his regular self, during Game 4. That’s a good sign for the Cavaliers who will need that from Irving in the Finals.
