Lebron James, and his Cleveland Cavaliers looked to close out the Atlanta Hawks, and return to the national stage of the NBA Finals. Kyrie Irving would be coming back for this game, and would be able to assist Lebron and take a load off his shoulders to win the game. This game for the Atlanta Hawks was more for pride and hope to see if they could extend the series. However the Atlanta Hawks did not show up at all. The Cleveland Cavaliers won this game from the start and pounded on the Hawks. Lebron nearly had another triple double, and could have had one, but only played 29 minutes as the Cavs were in command the whole time. The Cavs most likely will be playing the Golden State Warriors who look to close out their series this evening.
