Cavaliers 109, Raptors 102; Cleveland wins series 4-0
Despite a dud of a performance by Kevin Love (5/5/2), LeBron James (35/9/6) and Kyrie Irving (27/5/9) did the heavy lifting for Cleveland. It was a long-range battle, as the Cavs went 16-for-41 from deep while the Raptors went 10-for-29. Without Kyle Lowry due to a sprained ankle, Cory Joseph (20/6/12) stepped up and Toronto benefitted from strong performances by both Serge Ibaka (23/2/1) and DeMar DeRozan (22/4/8), but the home team was unable to come up with defensive stops down the stretch.
