Led by Kevin Love (27 points and 13 rebounds) the Cavs completed the four game sweep of the Atlanta Hawks and will move on to the Eastern Conference Finals where they’ll meet the winner of the Raptors and the Heat.
The Cavaliers are the only remaining unbeaten team in the playoffs.
Last night, the Cavs won the Eastern Conferece Championship in convincing fashion when they swept the Hawks 4-0 with a 118-88 victory. Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and GM David Griffin hoisted the Eastern Conference Championship trophy at the Q in front of a sold out croud.
The Cavs have off until June 4th when the NBA Finals will begin against either the Golden State Warriors or the Houston Rockets.
When I started That’s Cleveland Baby I had no intent of turing this into a sports-centric blog. That said, Cleveland revolves around its sports teams so when they’re in the news I feel compelled to cover it.
After the worst start in his career, LeBron James recorded a triple-double with 37 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists lifting the Cavs to a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals over the Atlanta Hawks.
The Cavaliers are back in action tonight at 8:30 at the Q. Let’s go Cavs!!!
The Cavs took game 2 in the East Conference Finals last night without Kyrie Irving. The more banged up the Cavs are, the better they play. LeBron James was 1 rebound shy of a triple double and Tristan Thompson had seven points and 16 boards.
The Cavs are back home tomorrow for Game #3, 8:30 at The Q. Let’s Go Cavs!!!
The Cavaliers took a 1-0 lead over the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference Finals last night when midseason pickup J.R. Smith dumped in 28 points on a Cavs playoff record eight three-pointers! With injuries continuing to plague the Cavs we’re going to need continued contribution from the likes of Smith and Dellavedova.
The Cavs and Hawks go at it in Game #2 in Atlanta on Friday May 22nd @ 8:30 PM. Let’s Go Cavs!!!
