With a dominating 128-93 win in Game 4 last night, the Cavs are headed to the Eastern Conference Finals for the fourth straight year. The Cavs ended the Toronto Raptors’ season for the third year in a row. LeBron James put up impressive stats, including 29 points and 11 assists.

The semifinals were a definite contrast from the Cavs’ grueling seven-game first round series that left James, who averaged 41 points, pretty exhausted.

The Cavs had a stunning come-from-behind win over the Toronto Raptors in the opening game of their Eastern Conference semifinals, winning 113-112 in overtime.

Notably, the Cavs scored eight points in overtime without any help from LeBron James, making Tuesday’s victory a true team effort.

“LeBron said he was tired and he looked it. If you heard that you'd think they were in trouble. They were in trouble, but they pulled out of it,” said WKSU sports commentator Terry Pluto. “It was a huge upset for the Cavs in Toronto.”

It was a grueling seven games, but the Cavs are moving on after narrowly defeating the Indiana Pacers on Sunday in the final game of the first round of the NBA Playoffs, 105-101. 

"It was certainly the most interesting first round series I've ever seen," said WKSU commentator Terry Pluto. "I don't think LeBron James wants to go out losing his last game in Cleveland, playing poorly in a game seven."

James will be a free agent in July and rumors are swirling about another departure from Cleveland.

The Cleveland Browns have a new quarterback. The Browns picked Oklahoma Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield, 23, with the No 1. pick in Thursday's NFL draft. It was a surprising pick amid speculation the Browns might choose USC’s Sam Darnold or Wyoming’s Josh Allen.

WKSU sports commentator Terry Pluto says Mayfield is a gamble that Browns General Manager John Dorsey hopes will pay off.
