Cleveland made to the finals last night! For the fourth consecutive time. What an accomplishment.

The Cleveland Cavaliers last night compete as gladiators and so far they are completing a 4-0 sweep against the Toronto Raptors wich send on fire to approach the finals for a fourth straight season with eventually some extra days for more training and adjustment to launch their journey for another Championship title.

But what the Cavaliers become so bold in game 4 against the Raptors? I invite you to appreciate some statistics data from USA TODAY Sports.

CLEVELAND — Make 130-0 for with a 3-0 series lead winning an NBA playoff series. One of these days a team may come back from a 3-0 deficit and win a series. Monday wasn’t that day.

With in mind, Cleveland swept Toronto for the second consecutive season. Finishing off the Raptors 128-3 in Game 4 on Monday. Cleveland brought the offensive firepower to Game 4. Shooting 5.5% from the field and 46.2% on three-pointers and outscoring Toronto 70-46 in the second and third quarters.

Meanwhile, the Cavaliers have beaten Toronto for the third consecutive postseason – 4-2 in the 2016 conference finals, 4-0 in last season’s conference semifinals and 4-0 in season’s conference semifinals.

To put differently, ’s now 10 consecutive playoff victories for Cleveland against Toronto. defeat is deflating for the Raptors. Because changed its style play following last season to better compete with Cleveland. It a regular-season success. They finished with a franchise- 5 victories and the No. 1 seed

But in the playoffs, the Raptors came up way short, even with a one-point loss in Game 1 and a two-point loss in Game 3. Until this series, the Raptors had not lost more than two consecutive games this season.

By all means, changes ? roster? be coming to Toronto in the offseason, and Cleveland is headed to the conference finals for the fourth consecutive season, getting the winner of the Boston-Philadelphia series.

Five reasons the Cavs are moving on and the Raptors are headed home.

1. LeBron James’ playoff excellence

Consequently, LeBron James would have recorded his 22 career playoff triple- had the Cavs not been up 110-80 in the fourth quarter when he went to the bench for the rest of the game. He had 2 , 11 assists, and eight rebounds, and for the series, he averaged 34 , 11.3 assists, and 8.3 rebounds and shot 55.3% from the field.

Nevertheless, James wanted to finish this series off and get rest. He started the series exhausted coming off a seven-game series against the Pacers. However, the conference finals won’t begin until Sunday at the earliest. He sensed the moment and didn’t squander the chance to get a break between series. Cleveland is 10-0 in a Game 4 with a 3-0 series lead – all with James.

this big-picture accomplishment: James’ have now won 23 consecutive conference series, and Cleveland is 44-8 in the conference playoffs since he returned to the Cavs.

And he is four victories from reaching the Finals for the eighth consecutive season.

2. The Other Cavaliers

Saturday Night Live in a skit over the weekend poked fun at Cavs players not named LeBron James. The skit featured host Donald Glover along with cast members.

“Everybody knows about LeBron. But don’t forget about us, The Other Cavaliers, and whatever LeBron needs, we’ll get it done as long as what he needs isn’t basketball,” Glover and cast members to say it’s funny. But The Other Cavaliers were strong in Game 4 and throughout the series.

J.R. Smith had 15 (made all six shots), Kyle Korver 16 (4-for-5 on threes), Kevin 23 and Hill 12.

3. Cleveland’s three-point shooting

The Cavs shot just 32.2% on three-pointers against Indiana in the first round. They found their three-point shooting against the Raptors, making 41.1% in four games.

In Game 4, they made 6-for-12 in the first and finished 12-for-26. When the Cavs make threes like that, they are one of the most difficult in the league to defend.

4. Not DeRozan’s finest series

All- DeMar DeRozan averaged 16.8 this series (six below his season average) and shot just 44% from the field, 0-for-9 on three-pointers and attempted just 11 free throws.

He sat the last 14 minutes, 16 seconds of Game 3 and on the bench while the Raptors made their comeback and tied the in the fourth quarter. He ejected in the second of Game 4 after a flagrant-2 against Hill.

The most telling : The Raptors were outscored by 74 points with DeRozan on the court, including by 29 in Game 4. DeRozan’s All- backcourt mate Kyle Lowry had just five points on 2-for-7 shooting.

5. Another lineup change for Raptors

Therefore, for answers to Cleveland’s rotations, Raptors Dwane Casey changed his starting lineup for the second consecutive game. C.J. Miles started and Fred VanVleet was back to being a reserve, and Serge Ibaka returned to the starting lineup in place of Jonas Valanciunas.

It worked to a degree. Valancuinas had 10 points, two assists, and two blocks in his first minutes and finished with 18 points. Ibaka had 12 points.
