LeBron James flirted with a triple-double Monday as the Cavaliers completed the four-game sweep over the top-seeded Raptors with a 128-93 win in Cleveland.

After doing most of the heavy lifting all on his own last series against the Pacers, James received help this time around. Still, James continued his own elite form by scoring 29 points with 11 assists and eight rebounds.

 

Kevin Love, after struggling last series, scored 23 points on 8-of-13 shooting with six rebounds. Love also added two blocks and two steals, while finally rounding back into form.

All five of Cleveland's starters scored in double figures Monday, with Kyle Korver adding 16 points, JR Smith finishing with 15 points, and George Hill pitching in with 12 points.

The Raptors shot just 26.7 percent from 3-point range and were led in scoring by center Jonas Valanciunas' 18 points.

Stud of the Night:

76ers rookie Ben Simmons finally found some success against the Celtics by scoring 19 points with 13 rebounds and five assists in a 103-92 Game 4 win. Dario Saric led Philadelphia with 25 points and eight rebounds, but getting Simmons back on track was key.

Dud of the Night:

Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry was ineffective most of this series, but he really struggled in Game 4, scoring just five points on 2-of-7 shooting. Lowry did dish out 10 assists, but as a leader of Toronto's top-seeded team, he fell short in rallying his troops this series.
