LeBron Scores 35 Points, Irving 27; Cavaliers Sweep Raptors

WASHINGTON - Bradley Beal scored 29 points and the Washington Wizards scored 26 unanswered points in the third quarter en route to a 121-102 win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday night in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series.

Ideally, the team would move on without DeMarre Carroll, a prideful veteran who has been robbed of his potential in the wake of injuries. He's carrying this team. and everybody's chipping in and trying to help him as much as possible.

To their great credit, the Raptors did not respond to a 12-point halftime deficit by laying down and letting the offseason come to them.

"Man, it sucked", he said.

Lowry's status is just one of numerous questions the team faces in an off-season of uncertainty.

So, if it's not a rebuild, how do they retool knowing that the Cavs are not going anywhere anytime soon, LeBron is not going anywhere.

The Cavs finished off the Raptors about an hour before Game 4 between the Celtics and Wizards tipped off in Washington.

The Cavs have rolled over IN and Toronto and now await the victor of the Celtics/Wizards series but until then they will get another long break, which only makes them more unsafe.

"The fact we play our best basketball in the postseason lets us know we're up for the challenge", said James, who had nine rebounds and six assists. "We just wanted to try to get defensive stops while he was in the zone and we were able to do that". Maybe we underestimated the Cavaliers. He became the first player in National Basketball Association history to score at least 35 points in each game of a four-game sweep, doing so while shooting 57 per cent from the field and 48 per cent from three-point range. Ultimately we chose to go with narrative separation, and placed them at the end of the levels to prevent this problem for arising. You have to go out and earn it. We pictured Pawcho as a game that could be played as a collaborative effort between parent and child.

He won the league three seasons in a row during his time with Juventus and was eventually offered the Italian National Team job. Back in the dressing room, Conte walked through the door after some TV interviews and was soaked by a huge bucket of water.

"I think I can do that anywhere I play", he said.

If we do get a Cavs-Warriors rematch in the NBA Finals, expect Bayless to be a very angry man. Still, DeRozan acknowledged it won't be easy to close the gap on Cleveland.

"I don't know if we made that final click", he added. But Lowry is not too far behind and playing with a star-studded Clippers team will definitely make him better. I've gotta get better.

But DeMar DeRozan isn't going to make excuses.

"It's not a step forward", said Patrick Patterson, one of several Raptors to have a dismal series.

"The 3-point line is definitely deadly now and the more shooters you have on your team, the deadlier you can be", he said.

"It's hard to break down a team that won 50-plus games two years in a row, with the core guys", DeRozan said. You stretch the floor, space the floor when you have more shooters.

However, it was Kyrie Irving time as the point guard outscored the Raptors himself 11-2 over the next 2:38 to give the Cavs a 103-95 lead with four minutes to play.

The Raptors don't have enough creators and clearly they suffered by having so few outside threats.
