For the second year in a row, Cleveland swept Toronto in the playoffs running away with a 128-93 victory in Game 4 on Monday. The Cavaliers have now knocked off Toronto three years straight, starting with a 4-2 win in the 2016 Eastern Conference Finals. The Cavaliers offense came out firing on all cylinders, shooting 46.2% from three and 59.5% shooting overall. LeBron James led the way (29 points, 11 assists, 8 rebounds), with a squad of impressive shooting support from J.R. Smith, Kevin Love, Kyle Korver and George Hill, shooting a combined 25 for 35.
DeMar DeRozan’s season ended slightly earlier than the Raptors when he was ejected on a flagrant-2 foul with seconds remaining in the third quarter after hitting Cavaliers point guard Jordan Clarkson in the head while attempting to stop Clarkson’s layup.
With another disappointing ending to the Toronto Raptors NBA finals hopes will we see a roster change? A coaching change? The organization will have to evaluate and make some decisions this off season.
