The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Atlanta Hawks in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday night, completing the series sweep and advancing to next month’s NBA Finals in the process.
A depleted Hawks lineup simply couldn’t contend with the Cavs’ LeBron James-led offensive onslaught, even with Cleveland’s starting point guard Kyrie Irving playing limited minutes. James would total 23 points, 7 assists and 9 rebounds in only 29 minutes of action, and the Cavs would go on to win by a final of 118-88.
Game 1 of the Finals will pit Cleveland against the Western Conference champion on June 4. Currently, the Golden State Warriors lead the Houston Rockets, 3 games to 1, with Game 5 taking place Wednesday night.
