The Cleveland Cavaliers completed the sweep against the top seeded team in the Eastern Conference. Cleveland beat Atalanta by 30 points in game-4. You could say the Cavaliers gave a performance, fit for a King.
LeBron James played for only 29 minutes in game-4. It was all the Cavs needed to put away the Hawks. LeBron's level of professionalism, has become infectious to his teammates. One of those teammates that caught the infection, is Tristan Thompson.
Thompson has been unbelievable throughout the play-offs. Last night in game-4 against the Hawks, it was no different. Thompson scored 16 points, had 11 rebounds, and he helped King James and his Cleveland Cavaliers advance to the finals.
James has been a solid leader this Cavaliers team needed. He helped these players keep their focus on getting to the finals, and have a chance to bring an NBA Championship back to Cleveland.
Every player on this Cavaliers team, has learned from watching King-James. LeBron has risen to the occasion, and his leadership has made all the others rise too.
Kyrie Irving returned last night, after missing the last two games, because of a sore knee. He scored 16 points, and he showed he has the ability to help the Cleveland Cavaliers win the championship. Irving took a hard foul early in the game, and he was quick to jump back to his feet.
The Cleveland Cavaliers will start their quest to win a championship on June 4th. That gives these guys 9 days to rest and let their bodies heal. The Cavaliers have been in 3 straight wars, and the rest will do them some good.
This Cleveland Cavaliers team is going to be hard to stop. Especially with LeBron James leading them. He returned to Cleveland as a much more mature player, and he knows there is still business to take care of.
Whether it is the Houston Rockets, or the Golden State Warriors, you can bet your last dollar, LeBron James will have his team ready to compete. James know exactly what a championship would mean to the City of Cleveland, and he is ready to go to war to bring one home.
