Cleveland Cavaliers post video of best plays from sweep against the Raptors

  • This was a little sad

Going into Monday's contest, Cleveland had won nine straight playoff games - and 14 of its last 16 games (regular and post-season) - against Toronto.

Toronto's deep bench was held in check by Cleveland, which made sure to match LeBron against the Raptors' reserves.

After doing most of the heavy lifting all on his own last series against the Indiana Pacers, James received help this time around.

"This year it was a big disappointment because we did so well in the regular season. Things just don't seem to go right for us", DeRozan said, adding that the James-inspired Cavs were anything but a one-man band. DeRozan and Kyle Lowry combined for 138 points, 46 assists, 30 rebounds. CJ Miles notched 13 points, Serge Ibaka added 12 and Delon Wright tallied 10.

The quick dismissal earned the Cavs a minimum of five days' rest, which could stretch to eight depending on how the Boston-Philadelphia series plays out. The Cavs stole Game 1, they crushed the Raptors in Game 2, James broke their spirits in Game 3, and it was an embarrassment in Game 4.

In the meantime, LeBron and the Cavaliers wait their Eastern Conference Finals opponent. The 1969 Baltimore Bullets dropped four in a row to the New York Knicks in the Eastern Division semifinals, and the 1951 Philadelphia Warriors fell 2-0 to the Syracuse Nationals in the Eastern Division semifinals.

LeBron James produced another commanding display as the Cleveland Cavaliers demolished the Toronto Raptors 128-93 to seal a series sweep and advance to the NBA Eastern Conference finals on Monday.

Indian team that toured England in 1996- Where are they now?
The pace department will be in the safe hands of Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav in the absence of Bhuvi and Bumrah. India's highly-anticipated tour of England follows thereafter, which includes three T20Is, as many one-dayers and five Tests.

Toronto is coming off a 105-103 loss Saturday, a crushing defeat courtesy of LeBron James' bank shot at the buzzer. "We got close but it doesn't count for anything and they came out tonight and played the way a championship team plays and we didn't after the first quarter". I don't know if we win the series like this if we didn't go through that first series, and so, hopefully, we keep on learning our lessons and continue to get better.

Will they fire Dwane Casey? "I believe he's one of the best coaches out there". He showed no signs of the thumb injury that seemed to bother him against IN IN Round 1, and he was a matchup nightmare for Toronto IN the post.

Casey liked what he saw from Anunoby in the Cleveland series.

The Cavaliers as a team improved their shooting performance in this series, shooting 41.1 percent from beyond the arc in the second round. LeBron has shown us that not only is he one of the best players of all-time, but could instead end up as the greatest player of all-time in the sport of basketball. Having four or five guys in double figures every single night is big for us. The AP observed at least one assistant coach shouting toward Hood. I think LeBron only had a couple points in the first few minutes of the game.

DeRozan fouled Clarkson and sent him sprawling to the floor. It's easy in hindsight to say that play changes everything. The game already all but lost, his ejection meant little, with many on Twitter calling it a pity ejection.

"This is probably the toughest, most frustrating, difficult, lowest feeling I've had", DeRozan said Tuesday. The two All-Stars were willing to sacrifice for the greater good during the regular season.
