Lebron James, with Israeli coach David Blatt, take Cleveland Cavaliers to NBA finals

LeBron James booked his place in the NBA Finals for the fifth straight year when the Cleveland Cavaliers crushed the Atlanta Hawks 118-88 on Tuesday to complete a 4-0 sweep of the Eastern Conference Final.

The Cavaliers’s coach is Israeli-American David Blatt, who in 2014 lead Maccabi Tel Aviv to its big win in the Euroleague championship. On June 12, 2014, he announced he would be leaving Israel for the NBA.

James scored a game-high 23 points as the Cavs advanced to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2007, where they will play either the Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets.
