LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers walked away with a clean sweep of the Indiana Pacers. After a hard fought series, Cleveland completed the sweep Sunday following the 106-102 victory. Indiana played a great game led by Lance Stephenson’s 22 points and Myles Turner’s 20 points. Lance was a mainstay in this contest and the pivotal reason this game was close down the stretch.

LeBron James was stellar yet again dropping 33 points and 10 boards. Also his partner-in-crime Kyrie Irving put up a big point total to help steer Cleveland to victory. But backup point guard Deron Williams was the best player outside of LeBron and Kyrie. He made key bucket after key bucket for the bench to help a Cavs team who struggled to make shots consistently.
Paul George was pressing and struggled` to have major impact like he had on the other three games. He finished with only 15 points and had a -6 plus/minus for Game 4. Surely a disappointing end for the season being that they were close to winning many of these games. If LeBron does not bury this clutch three with minutes left in the game, the Pacers looked prime to come out with a win.
The great LeBron James completed some monumental achievements following the sweep in Indiana. He has won 21 straight games in the opening round of the playoffs and hasn’t lost a first round game in over four seasons. The Cavaliers will now have at least a week break due to the Raptors-Bucks series guaranteed to go six games minimum.
