Cavaliers win Eastern Conference Finals over Raptors

DS LeBron James

LeBron James is headed back to the NBA Finals for the sixth consecutive season after the Cleveland Cavaliers clinched the Eastern Conference Championship over the Toronto Raptors with a 113-87 win in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

LeBron led the Cavs in scoring, with 33 points to go with 11 rebounds. He teamed up with Kyrie Irving (30 points) and Kevin Love (20 points) for 83 points combined.

Kyle Lowry led the Raptors with 35 points, but only had one teammate in double-digits (20, DeMar DeRozen). In the end, it was the simple fact that the Cavs had more players that could spread out the scoring that eventually led to them winning the series.

Waiting for the Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals will either be the Golden State Warriors, who beat the Cavs in the 2015 NBA Finals, or the Oklahoma City Thunder, who lost to LeBron’s Miami Heat in 2012 (Lebron’s first NBA Championship). Either way, there will be plenty of storylines for King James and Company.
