Cavs Beat Raptors to Reach Eastern Conference Finals



LeBron James scored 29 points as Cleveland Cavaliers secured a 4-0 series win over Toronto Raptors and ensure their place in the NBA Eastern Conference finals.

Cleveland beat the number one seeds 128-93 to set up a meeting with either Boston or Philadelphia.

It is the third consecutive year that Cleveland have beaten Toronto in the play-offs.

“We had a lot of challenges, but we had a great game plan,” James said.

Toronto coach Dwane Casey described his team as “emotionally drunk after game one and game three”.

“I thought we could bounce back, but we didn’t,” he added.

Cleveland will play either Boston Celtics or Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference finals.

Boston could have completed a 4-0 series win over Philadelphia, but the 76ers registered a 103-92 win to set up a fifth game on Wednesday.
