Cleveland Cavaliers Clinch Third-Straight Eastern Conference Title

For the third straight year, the Cleveland Cavaliers are Eastern Conference champions.

The Cavs finished off a 4-1 series victory against the Celtics in Boston, dominating their way to a 135-102 win.

No. 1 seed Boston never led on their home floor in three games in the series.

LeBron James scored 35 points, grabbing eight rebounds and eight assists. He passed Michael Jordan in career Playoff scoring. He’s headed to his seventh-consecutive NBA Finals appearance.

It marks the first time in NBA history in which two teams meet for three straight championships.
