LeBron James    F  Cavaliers

 

 

LeBron James had a rare off-night on Sunday, posting 11 points on 4-of-13 FGs and 3-of-6 FTs, with six rebounds, six assists and six turnovers. LBJ is in the midst of another amazingly effective playoff run, with his team boasting a 10-1 record, and tonight's struggles were an obvious aberration. "Me personally I didn't have it," James said after the game. "That's all I've got to say about my performance." It's the fourth time in his postseason career that he's scored fewer than a dozen points and he's likely to erupt in another home game on Tuesday, though that won't help DFS owners who paid up for him tonight.

LeBron James crushed the Celtics in Boston during a blowout 130-86 win on Friday, scoring 30 points with four rebounds, seven assists, four steals, three blocks and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes. So it turns out he's not just a regular guy. The Cavs set the NBA playoffs record with a 41-point lead at halftime thanks to winning the second quarter 40-13 to get them to the 72-31 lead at the break. LeBron becomes the first player since Michael Jordan to score 30-plus points in eight consecutive games, and this one hands the Celtics their worst home playoff loss ever. The Cavs have also won 13 straight playoff games to tie the 1988-89 Lakers for the NBA record. LeBron is doing whatever he wants on offense and Celtics coach Brad Stevens may have to be more aggressive in defending him with more double teams. Regardless, it probably isn't going to matter.

LeBron James was dominant during the Cavs' Game 1 victory in Boston, scoring 38 points (14-of-24 FGs, 9-of-11 FTs) with nine rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes. The Cavs had a nine-day break prior to tonight's game, but the rest-vs.-rust question was decisively in favor of rest tonight. The Celtics switched everything defensively against LeBron and he feasted against bigger players like Al Horford and Kelly Olynyk, as well as smaller guys like Marcus Smart, scoring 15 points in the first quarter alone. LeBron has at least one road victory in an NBA-record 29 consecutive playoff series, and the Celtics have no obvious answers for him.

LeBron James powered the Cavs to a Game 4 win over the Raptors on Sunday, tallying 35 points, nine rebounds, six assists, five 3-pointers, one block and six turnovers in 46 minutes. The Raptors had precisely zero answers for James, and he's been rolling through the postseason with averages of 34.3 points, 9.0 boards, 7.3 dimes, 2.4 triples, 2.4 steals and 1.6 blocks per contest on 56.6 percent shooting. With the win, the Cavs become just the third team in NBA history to win their first eight games of the postseason as the defending champs, joining the 2001 and 1989 Lakers teams. This was also the 11th best-of-seven series sweep of James' career.

LeBron James dominated yet again during a Game 3 115-94 win at Toronto on Friday, scoring 35 points with eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers. He's just not fair and he even had two left-handed shots, making 9-of-16 from the field and 15-of-16 from the line. James is getting to the line at will with 37 attempts in the last two games and the Raptors just can't keep him out of the paint. Perhaps more importantly, the Cavs defense was very good in the second half and it's part of the reason they're 7-0 in the postseason. Despite that 9-13 stretch during the regular season, the Cavs are now flying high and look like they'll be coasting to another NBA Finals. They'll go for the sweep on Sunday and get the winner of the Wizards-Celtics series after that.
