The Cavs claimed their third straight Eastern Conference title and a return trip to the NBA Finals. Kyrie Irving added 24 points and Kevin Love finished with 15 for the Cavs, who never trailed and led by as many as 39 points in one of their most dominating wins of the series.

Cleveland’s 4-1 series’ win gives it a 12-1 record this postseason and sets up a third consecutive matchup with Western Conference champion Golden State, the team it beat in the Finals last season to claim the franchise’s first championship. It will mark the seventh straight trip to the Finals for James.

Avery Bradley led Boston with 23 points and Sweden’s Jonas Jerebko had 3 points and 2 rebounds for the Celtics.
