Lebron James Advances to his Sixth Strait NBA Finals
Lebron James will be heading to his sixth strait NBA Finals and seventh in his career as he helped lead the Cleveland Cavaliers past the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Finals.
In reaching his sixth strait NBA Finals, Lebron becomes the 8th player to do so.
Many expected this series to be done in four games after the Cavs jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the series, but after a couple of wins at home in Toronto, the Raptors had made a series of it.
But after a blowout loss in Game 5, the Raptors were reeling and in Game 6, it was too much Lebron James. He ended up with 33 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists in the 113-87 victory.
He also got some great help from his supporting cast with Kyrie Irving putting up 30 and Kevin Love stacking up 20 as well.
The Cavaliers will await the winner of the Western Conference Finals between Oklahoma City and Golden State who will play Game 6 on Saturday in Oklahoma City with the Thunder leading the series 3-2.
