Last night the top two teams in the East battled it out. It was the biggest game of the season, with the #1 seed at stake. The Celtics had a half-game lead, but lost it in their 4th meeting of the season with the Cavaliers. Last night LeBron silenced all of the doubters, and proved that he will play in his 7th Finals.
The Cavaliers cruised to a relatively easy victory in a game that didn’t quite live up to it’s hype. The Cavs won 114-91, going 3-1 against the Celtics on the season. This victory was bigger than all the others though. The Cavaliers now hold the #1 seed, which they’ll likely hold for the rest of the season.
As of now, the Cavaliers will play the Heat in the first round, which some have said could be a much tougher match-up than expected, but really, we all know that it’ll be another cake walk for LeBron. Last year it was supposed to be the Raptors that would stop him, but they ended up losing in 6 games by an average of 15.5 points per game.
Before that series, the Cavaliers hadn’t lost a single game.
This year will be much of the same. No matter how many articles come out saying that the Cavaliers are in trouble, LeBron will make it happen. He’s done it 6 seasons in a row, and he’ll likely do it for a 7th.
He finished the game with 36 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists silencing the Boston crowd, as well as all of his critics and doubters. Only 6 players have played in 7 or more consecutive Finals appearances (all part of the Bill Russell Celtics dynasty), and LeBron will likely become the 7th player, this season.
