LeBron James’ Dagger 3-Pointer Helps Cavaliers Finish Sweep Of Pacers

The Cleveland Cavaliers are advancing to the second round of the NBA playoffs and, once again, LeBron James is a big reason why.

Trailing by two points during the final minutes of Game 4 of their first-round matchup with the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, the Cavs got a clutch 3-pointer from James to take the lead with 1:08 remaining. Cleveland went on to secure a 106-102 win and a sweep of Indiana, which put up a valiant effort in the series.

Cleveland now awaits the winner of the Toronto Raptors-Milwaukee Bucks series, which currently is tied 2-2.

The Cavs-Pacers series was brutally close, particularly from Indiana’s perspective. Cleveland won four games by a combined 16 points, including a one-point victory in Game 1.

Still, winning is all that matters at this time of the year, and the Cavaliers look primed to make a strong run at defending their 2016 NBA championship.
