LeBron James: My Confidence In Teammates 'Never Wavered'

  • It was yet another buzzer beater for the man many believe is the sport's greatest ever player

Los Angeles -LeBron James led the way as the Cleveland Cavaliers wrapped up a series sweep with a ruthless demolition of the Toronto Raptors on Monday to book their place in the NBA Eastern Conference finals. We saw that in the first series so now we should be pretty much immune to it.

Cleveland shot a ridiculous 65 per cent in Game 4's first quarter, when nine of their 12 field goals were either layups or dunks.

Prior to the semi-finals, there was confidence the Raptors could finally overcome LeBron James' Cavs but he had the last laugh, inspiring his team to the Conference finals against either the Boston Celtic or Philadelphia 76ers. They'll try to make it 10 straight by riding the momentum from James' buzzer-beater in Game 3 into the closeout opportunity.

21 -After seemingly being out of the playoff rotation prior to Game 4, Cedi Osman not only led the reserves with 21 minutes, but he made the a lot of them as well.

"The cause of lack of sleep at night when you can replay the game and see so many turning points".

The results spoke for themselves throughout the series, with all five Cavs starters - plus reserve forward Jeff Green - averaging double-digit scoring figures against Toronto after James and Love were the only ones to do so vs. the Pacers. Yes, he provided 10 assists, but you expect more than five points in a do-or-die game, with the season on the line. For James, the Google doc is 248 pages long, counting playoffs.James this season, from the first day of training camp on, had never - not once - spoken of the Cavs as though he believed they had a legitimate chance to win a second National Basketball Association championship. "He makes them all the time", Kevin Love said after the game. "I think we did that in this series".

Leading Cleveland to yet another sweep, James set even more playoff records.




"We wanted to remind the team of how good a season they have had to this point", Brown said afterwards.

"They laid their hearts out", coach Dwane Casey said of his team, which now trails 3-0 in the Eastern Conference semifinal.

Casey, looking for a spark to save the season - and maybe his job - switched starting lineups for the second straight game.

But Miles picked up two quick fouls and the Cavs' offense was in gear from the start as Cleveland opened 12 of 15 from the floor while building a 26-17 lead. You never know. But you always think about the fact that you want to give yourself the best shot every single night and there's some plays that didn't always give us the best shot. "We had a great game plan and we just tried to execute it".

It is the third straight year that the Raptors' have bowed out of the playoffs against the Cavaliers.

Teams that trail 3-0 in a best-of-seven series have forced a Game 7 three times.

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