LeBron Paces Cavs to Game 2 Win
Led by LeBron James' 23 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists the Cleveland Cavaliers raced out to a 2-0 series in the Eastern Conference Finals by beating the Toronto Raptors on Thursday, 108-89.
The win moves the Cavs to just two wins away from a second straight NBA Finals appearance. Furthermore, the team's dominance over the Eastern Conference continues, as they have won 17 straight games against the East in the playoffs.
It wasn't just LeBron though as Kyrie Irving poured in 26 points and three assists. Kevin Love also had 19 points.
If there was one Achilles' heel in the win for Cleveland, it was that the team only got 19 points from its bench, and 10 of those came from Channing Frye. If you are going to win a title, you have got to get contributions everywhere to help overcome foul trouble and ineffectiveness.
For Toronto, DeMar DeRozan had 22 points. Kyle Lowry had 10 points on just 4-14 shooting.
The series now shifts to Toronto. Can the Raptors capture some magic North of the Border?
