LeBron and the Cavs had a tough first series of the NBA playoffs against the Indiana Pacers going into 7 games when LeBron put the Pacers down with a win at home in game 7. The Cavaliers had what looked like was going to be tough series ahead of them, but with LeBron James on the roster… anything can happen.
The Cavs are the 4th seed in the NBA Western Conference; the Raptors are the 1st seed in the Western Conference. But last year when the Cavs and Raptors met, it was all the LeBron show as they swept the Raptors 4-0 in a 7 game series.
But this season many people thought that would go differently with Kyrie not with the Cavs anymore, and many roster changes with inexperienced players. LeBron James showed why you should never doubt his team.
The Cavs started the series in Toronto because they had home court advantage the first two games because of being a better seed. But even with home court, Drake trash talking, LeBron showed up the home crowd with a triple double and ceased an overtime win 113-112.
After winning game 2 in Toronto in dominant fashion 128-110 the Cavs and LeBron started to look very promising in this series and to advance to the conference finals. The Cavs had the next two games at home in Cleveland where LeBron gave the fans what they wanted by hitting an impossible shot at the buzzer for the win--making him have the most postseason game wins in NBA history.
To finish off the series, LeBron and the Cavs played tremendous basketball, not missing a three pointer nearly the whole first half.
J.R. Smith, Kyle Korver, and George Hill were on fire from downtown. The Cavs cruised to a 128-93 victory to end the series and advance to the conference finals where they will face the new home to an injured Kyrie Irving, the Boston Celtics.
