Cavaliers sweep past Raptors into NBA Eastern finals

Cavaliers sweep past Raptors into NBA Eastern finals

The Cavaliers, who won the National Basketball Association championship last season, will play either the Boston Celtics or the Washington Wizards in the Eastern Conference finals. Korver had 16 points, including 16 in the second quarter, while Deron Williams and Channing Frye each had five points. The entire series could have been considered a "shooterpalooza". Irving was relatively quiet in Game 4 until he took over for that late stretch, and Korver's 16-point outburst, though crucial, was the only part of the game in which he scored, other than a couple of free throws when the outcome was decided.

It was eight minutes of clock time, but the series in microcosm: The Cavaliers absolutely torching the Raptors from distance, and Toronto unable to respond with three-point shots of their own. Now 32, James has already accumulated 10 full seasons and more than 40,000 career minutes. The Raptors were playing whack-a-mole and the Cavs had way too many moles. Kyrie scored the Cavaliers next 11 points to give the Cavaliers a 103-95 lead and to give the Cavaliers some breathing room. "But they were making shots that were well covered, hand in their face".

3-Point Goals: 10-29, .345 (Tucker 4-7, Ibaka 2-6, Powell 2-8, Joseph 1-1, VanVleet 1-2, Valanciunas 0-1, DeRozan 0-2, Patterson 0-2). "It's going to take a Herculean effort to beat them". "You've got to match tit-for-tat to beat them".

"Anytime you have No. 23 you can flip every switch you want to", Dwane Casey said of James and the Cavs. "It's gonna be one of them long summers for us". "And now here goes Kyrie".

He said the major consideration will be having a chance to win a championship but that doesn't limit him to teams seen today as legitimate challengers to the Cavaliers or the Golden State Warriors. That much isn't happening, but it probably would have helped. "I thought the Milwaukee series would prepare us more for the Cavs series because we had to change the way we played a little".

It looks like the Toronto Raptors will be taking a huge step back next year. And Toronto went up by 11 points - their highest lead of the series. It would also take a lot of money to do so. "Honestly, that is as far as I've gotten". While we may be big fans of Pawcho as a team, we also understand we don't have brand recognition for easy sales. "We just didn't come out with the win".

"Get our rotations set. and do some things defensively we know we're capable of doing".

Maybe his best basketball has him feeling confident; James (nearly) chugged a beer on the court earlier in the Raptors series, after all.

"I just like our guys didn't give up". The Wizards led by as many as 26 and have outscored the Celtics (237-191) in the two games in D.C. "One thing about Case, Case is one hell of a person outside of a coach".

In Game 4, the Cavaliers looked like they were going to run away with another blowout in the third quarter.
