The Cleveland Cavaliers, led by their superstar LeBron James, has sent the Toronto Raptors into summer vacation for the third straight season as the Cavs completed another series sweep to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.

The 4th seed Cavs knocked out the first seed Raptors with a 128-93 win in Game 4 held in Quicken Loans Arena Monday.

James finished with 29 points, 11 assists and spent the remaining 7:38 of the game on the bench celebrating.

“It was a great series for us,” James said. “We had a lot of challenges to start the series knowing the domination they had in the regular season. We had a great game plan and we just tried to execute it.”
