Cavs Head to Conference Finals for Fourth Consecutive Year

LeBron James drilled a bank shot buzzer beater to continue the Cavaliers dominance over the Raptors

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers completed a four-game sweep of the Toronto Raptors Monday night, becoming the first team in the 2018 National Basketball Association playoffs to advance to the conference finals.

According to the Cavaliers website, tickets for the first two home games in the Eastern Conference Championship will be available beginning at 11 a.m. Cleveland's hopes came true in Game 3 as DeRozan was 3-of-12 from the field.

Toronto did rally to tie the game with eight seconds remaining, only to be put to the sword by LeBron James' off-balance buzzer-beater from 10 feet out.

On Saturday night, there was perhaps another subtle dig as James wore a baseball cap with the Seagram's 7s Canadian whisky logo to the post-game news conference.

Turnovers have been key in the series with the Raptors outscored 52-19 (minus-33) on points off turnovers through three games.

That shooting slump carried over to the Raptors series, with Hood shooting a miserable 1-of-9 from the floor in just 39 combined minutes across four games.

"We showed a lot of maturity today and came up with a win", said McConnell, adding that the team was unfazed by the statistical improbability of overturning a 0-3 series deficit. Kyle Lowry had 27 for the Raptors with DeMar DeRozan sitting out the fourth after contributing just eight points.

For the Cavaliers, Saturday's victory extended their current SU win streak to four games overall. He averaged 25 points and 11 rebounds on 54 percent shooting in those three games, providing a huge boost to help the Cavs get the sweep. Toronto's game plan, in their third annual clash with King James and the Cavaliers, went something like this. "So it's impossible for me to lose confidence in our ballclub, no matter what the stakes are or where we're down, because if I do that, then where are we going to go from a team aspect?" James told reports after the game that he was looking forward to the break. The Cleveland Cavaliers aren't almost finished. "That's insane. I mean, to change a team who they said played iso basketball, to being top (five), I guess, in offence and defence this year, the second-best record in the NBA - like, I don't believe that one bit", Lue said.

The Cavs have now eliminated Toronto in the last three seasons-sweeping them in the last two years-and in the process looked a much better team than the one who needed seven games to beat the Indiana Pacers last round. DeRozan finished the quarter with a dunk to cap a 7-1 Toronto run that cut the Cavs' lead to 30-26.

Cleveland swept Toronto in the Eastern semifinals last season and 4-2 in the East final in 2016.

J.R. Smith celebrating things is always the best - remember how he didn't wear a shirt for like a year after the Cavaliers won a title?

James is first all-time in playoff points, third in assists and seventh in total rebounds.
