The Cavaliers have a special weapon, LeBron James. For the Cleveland Cavaliers, LeBron James has been a game-changer. He led the Miami Heat, his former team to multiple championships, and now he is building his legacy with the Cavaliers.
LeBron James returned to his native team for a reason. He wanted to provide the Cavaliers with their very first NBA Title. Last season, in his second attempt he was able to do. Cleveland took the playoffs by storm, quickly navigating their way through the first rounds.
Before they knew it, the Cavaliers found themselves in the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors last season. They had to be the team to end the Warriors record-setting 73-win season. It took the Cavaliers seven games to do it, but they are the reason the Warriors did not win a trophy. Cleveland defeat Golden State in Game 7.
James completed his mission. Now there is a new task at hand for James and the Cavaliers, winning another championship. One trophy is simply not enough for King James. The Cleveland Cavaliers are currently working on landing a second token of achievement.
After finishing off the year with the second best record of the Eastern Conference, they Cavaliers were far from finished. Winning 51 games on the year was just the start for the Cavaliers. They successfully secured a seat in the playoffs.
Cleveland swept the Pacers in four games, and then the Raptors in four. In total they have put together nine consecutive postseason wins. This postseason the Cavaliers have yet to be defeated by any opponents to cross their path. Three teams have tried so far, and all three have failed. No team has been able to break their streak, not even their conference finals opponent, the Boston Celtics. Boston recently fell victim.
In their conference finals series against the Boston Celtics, Cleveland has managed to take an early lead. In Game 1, they proved to be too much to handle for the Celtics. Despite Boston coming up with a Game 7 win over the Washington Wizards, they were not ready for the Cavaliers.
The Cleveland Cavaliers handed Boston a 117-104 loss to start off the series, according to Fox Sports. They left Boston to 13 points unanswered for. With their Game 1 victory over their shoulder the Cavaliers lead the series 1-0. Tonight they are aiming to add some insurance and take a 2-0 lead on the Celtics’ turf. Boston may of won the regular season as they clinched the Eastern Conference, with a record of 53-29, but the Cavaliers are winning this round.
