Cavaliers cruise to NBA finals

LeBron James led the way for the Cavaliers at the Quicken Loans Arena with 23 points and it will be a fifth straight finals for James, who returned to Cleveland after four years in Miami and will hope to lead his side to a first championship since 1964.

Tristan Thompson grabbed 17 rebounds while James had seven assists as the Cavs dominated from the go, leading 32-20 after the first quarter and they put up more points every quarter than their opponents.

Jeff Teague scored 17 points and Paul Millsap 16 for Atlanta who came into the series as the number one ranked side after a team-record 60 wins during the regular season.

The Cavaliers will face either Golden State or Houston starting June 4.
