    Cleveland Cavaliers Sweep


    The Cleveland Cavaliers (Cavs) were playing the Toronto Raptors in the second round of the 2018 NBA playoffs.  The Raptors regular season record was 59 wins and 23 losses. The Raptors won the first round of playoffs against the wizards. The Raptors won in-game six of the series.

    The Cavs regular season record was 50 wins and 32 losses. The Cavs won the first round of the playoffs against the Pacers in-game seven of the series.

    The first game of the Cavs and Raptors series was in Toronto on Tuesday May first. The game was a nail biter. The finial score 113 to 112 with the Cavs winning. This first game of the series was a big win for the Cavs because the first round of playoffs went seven games and they did not get much rest.

    The second game of the series was in Toronto again on Thursday May third . This game was not as close as the first game. The Cavs were able to win 128 to 110. Winning both of these games on the road was a great way to start the series for the Cavs.

    The Third game of the series was in Cleveland on Saturday May fifth. This game was another nail biter. The Cavs came out on top again with the finial score being 103 to 105. Lebron James the Cavs Forward hit a running buzzer beater for the win.

    The fourth and finial game was in Cleveland on Monday May seventh. This game was not close at all. The Cavs won the game 128 to 93, the biggest point spread in the series.

    The Cavs were able to win the first round in seven game, get no rest and sweep the second round in four games. This is going to be interesting to see how the Cavs do against the Boston Celtics in the next round.
