Cavs in 4, they won't lose a game in the playoffs on their way to a 4 game sweep over the Jazz in the Championship.

I'd say it's a virtual lock for the Cavs to sweep here.

I think Boston is going to beat the Cavs. Garnett appears to be nearly 100% but the Celtics are still letting him rest a little more.

King James after 1 half of playoff basketball. 8-10 from the field for 22 points, 6 assists and 4 boards. MVP.

In only 30 minutes of action tonight, Video Game James has taken 10 shots. He has scored 6 times. He has 25 points. Video Game James has also grabbed 10 rebounds in those 30 minutes of basketball and dished 5 assists. He's only turned the ball over 1 time. His team Cleveland is +23 when he is in the basketball game and they went into the fourth quarter leading 77-50. Keep in mind this against one of the better defensive teams in Detroit. Cleveland now leads 82-60 with 8 left in the 4th, Video Game James is probably done for the night and it looks like the Cavs are the best team in basketball right now.

[size=7][b]Cavs go up 3-0[/b][/size]

Video Game James flirts with a triple double tonight in Motown. 25 points, 11 boards, 9 assists, 3 steals, 2 blocks. Must say that the Cavs still look the best team in basketball.

Colin Cowherd was talking about the soon to be finals between the CAVs and Lakers.

Said the Lakers are so much deeper than the Cav's it will be a rout.


What ya think KT ?

Everyone is picking the Cavs vs. Lakers. Something tells me we may not see that. If that does happen I'd take the Cavs in 7 games. Having homecourt is HUGE for them.

[size=8][b]King James SWEEPS Detroit!!![/b][/size]
[quote]AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP)—LeBron James earned a break.

James had 36 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 99-78 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday, sweeping the Eastern Conference first-round series.

The top-seeded Cavs might be off for more than a week, waiting for Atlanta or Miami to advance.

Detroit, meanwhile, will have its longest offseason since 2001 and about $20 million in salary-cap space to rebuild a once-proud team.

James made his first four shots—including a windmill dunk. He helped put the Pistons away for good with a 16-6 run midway through the third quarter.[/quote]

The leading scorer in the playoffs so far is LeBron James. His averages for this 4 game beat down, 32.0 PPG (on 50.6% from the field!!!) 11.3 RPG, 7.5 APG and an impressive 80% from the free throw line (47-59).
