After a 4-0 sweep, Cleveland and LeBron James are back in the NBA finals. The prodigal son of the Cavs returned and led them to a great series in the East Finals which ended with a 118-88 triumph over the Hawks.
Cleveland returned to the final for the first time since 2007, while Lebron will be there for the fifth straight year after averaging almost a triple double in the East finals (30.3 p., 11 r., 9.3 as.). The starting center of the Cavs, Russian Timofey Mozgov also got his job done with 14 points, 7 rebounds and 3 blocks in Game 4, while coach David Blatt is finally hailed for his work and contribution in creating a contender. It remains to be seen if after leading Maccabi Tel Aviv to the Euroleague crown last season, Blatt will be also an NBA champion.
From the losing side the injury plagued Hawks finished the season without Swiss forward Thabo Sefolosha, German point guard Dennis Schroder had 4 points and 4 assists, while Pero Antic wasn’t used in Game 4.
