— LeBron James scored 23 points, grabbed nine rebounds and had seven assists as the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Atlanta Hawks 118-88 Tuesday night to complete a four-game sweep in the NBA's Eastern Conference finals.

J.R. Smith added 18 points and 10 rebounds, Tristan Thompson had 16 points and 11 rebounds and Kyrie Irving scored 16 points in just 25 points.

Timofey Mozgov (14 points) and Matthew Dellavedova (10) also scored in double figures.
